    ....It is not now and never has been a valid goal to make our gospel message more winsome, more politically correct, more sophisticated-sounding, or simpler than it already is. Since Scripture recognizes and makes no apology for the fact that the message of the cross is itself a stumbling block and mere foolishness to unbelievers (1 Corinthians 1:23-25), Christians who are determined to devise a smart-sounding or inoffensive message are not being faithful ambassadors for Christ. He has commanded what our message should be. Our only duty is to deliver it without altering the sense of it.....

    As should be the goal of all Christians with the entirety of the Word of God.

    The world seeks teachers having itching ears, but God's Word commands 'from such turn away.'

    Too many try to water down the Word of God thinking in doing so they won't offend their neighbor, friend, or family member. But those who will not preach the full counsel of God are not faithful stewards of the Word that God has entrusted them with.

    And I have the perfect hymn for that movement:

    The chorus goes like this:

    "Send the lite, the blessed gospel lite....."
