“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature”. Mrk 16:15. The one single commandment given to the church by the Lord was to preach the Gospel and to make disciples of men. Sadly much of todays church has been distracted from the first and delegated the second. In largely rejecting the plainness of the proclamation of the words of God, the church has moved toward all forms of social justice matters and determined that the training of pastors be undertaken by largely unacountable Bible colleges, for which nothing is directly spoken of in the scriptures. The result is the utter distortion of the word of God itself, attended to for the purpose of justifying the status quo.

Is it the words they reject, or is it what the words say that offends them?
