What America needs

Soldiers of Christ Enduring Hardness

What America needs is for every “evangelical” and “fundamentalist” and Bible-believing church in the land to preach nothing but God’s highness, holiness, and wrath for several months running, because a pampered people who have been treated with a powerful dose of self-esteem from infancy don’t understand their great sinfulness before God, and an individual who doesn’t understand his sinfulness doesn’t properly understand God’s grace. In the Epistle to Rome, Paul spent nearly three chapters preaching on God’s holiness and judgment before he mentioned justification by grace, but evangelism is usually quick and shallow today, whether it is evangelical evangelism or independent Baptist evangelism.
