Today while preaching I used the shooting of the ‘Route 91 Harvest’ concert as a ‘segue’ into my open-air sermon. It’s amazing how many believe that all victims of a horrific crime, will “RIP.” And when I ‘attempted’ to teach what the Bible says about this, many in this crowd became very hostile and intense. Even ‘professing’ Christians on Facebook get extremely angry when you mention the victims need for salvation. Even popular ‘Bible scholars’ on social media are watering down the truth. Do we not care about their souls? Shall we make everyone comfortable on their way to hell? Shall we preach everyone into heaven?
You are too delicate to tell the man that he is ill. You hope to heal the sick without their knowing it. You therefore flatter them. And what happens? They laugh at you. They dance upon their own graves and at last they die. Your delicacy is cruelty, your flatteries are poisons; you are a murderer. Shall we keep men in a fool’s paradise? Shall we lull them into soft slumber from which they will awake in hell? Are we to become helpers of their damnation by our smooth speeches? In the name of God we will not! – Charles Spurgeon
