AUDIO: Dr. Erwin Lutzer – Christians, Stop ‘Watering Down’ the Gospel!

By Tim WildmonBarbWire guest contributor

It isn’t often I come across something so compelling that I ask people to stop what they are doing and listen. But this short audio clip of two minutes and 51 seconds from Dr. Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of Moody Church in Chicago, is worth your time.

Here he talks about the serious problem in the Christian church today of what many call “cheap grace.” Maybe that’s not the best way to phrase it, but I am talking about the popular idea among Christians of downplaying the seriousness of sin and its consequences in the name of not offending the unbeliever.

This idea is poisoning the church in America today, in my estimation. Should we intentionally be rude or offensive to non-Christians? Absolutely not! But should we allow ourselves to be intimidated into silence? Absolutely not!

Please listen and forward this audio clip to as many Christians as you can. A lot of otherwise solid believers have bought into this approach. Dr. Lutzer’s comments were part of his message at the Understanding the Times Conference on April 26, hosted by Olive Tree Ministries in Minneapolis.

Unlike Dr. Lutzer, many Christian leaders are caving on some of the great moral issues of our time in order to avoid confrontation with the anti-Christian popular culture which, no question, is getting more hostile by the day.

But we must stop this troubling trend of capitulation by the Christian community. People can only understand the Good News (Jesus saves us from sin) if they understand the bad news first (sin, unrepented of, ends in death and hell.)

I have already transcribed the audio for those who would like the hard copy (pdf) of Dr. Lutzer’s words of warning and wisdom.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
