A Biblically based Christ-centered line of preaching has never been more important in the church. It is the church alone who is in possession of this understanding that can impart the real message to those who lack truth.

A Biblically based Christ-centered line of preaching has never been more important in the church. It is the church alone who is in possession of this understanding that can impart the real message to those who lack truth.
It is when the church performs its true task. Its primary purposes are to put people into the right relationship with God. Anything else is only a temporary relief and this disease will continue to worsen if not addressed with truth.
Faith in Christ without any depth is going to be shallow. There is too much distracting you. This is one of the problems confronting the Christian church today. Programs can only help so much. Only the preaching of the gospel from the Bible, not some book or internet article; only the Word of God has the power of God.
The business of the church is specialist work. The preaching of the anointed word is first and foremost. Some say that the old preaching of the gospel is too simple; that it does not deal with the social problems and conditions. This is part of the liberal modern view of the Scriptures.
When you depart from the primary task of the church and do something else, though your motive may be pure, that is the result of the social gospel. Gospel without Godliness simply does not work and it never will.
