Why are most professing Christians so hateful towards this one word? #truth #love #jesus #christ #believe #faith #christian #jesuschrist #christianity #gospel #obey #ministry #sermon
Another word which gets the modern day Christian very agitated is "fear", that is, the fear of God. (Matthew 10:28) They have the seriously mistaken idea that the fearsome God of the Old Testament who demanded obedience, has somehow morphed into "gentle Jesus" who would never harm a fly. Of course, a balanced perspective is essential. I love the way Paul express it in Romans 11:22 beginning, "Behold the kindness and severity of God...." (NASB). The modern day " prosperity gospel" makes no allowance at all for God's severity making it in essence, a "false gospel".
