’’Everywhere there is apathy. Nobody cares whether that which is preached is true or false. A sermon is a sermon whatever the subject; only, the shorter it is the better.’’ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

In the late 1800s, Charles Spurgeon warned that the Church was drifting away from the purity of the Gospel. Instead of boldly proclaiming the truths of God’s Word, Christians were candy-coating the Bible, being careful not to offend anyone. As a result, Christianity’s influence in nineteenth-century
England was severely destabilized.

Now, 100 years later, John MacArthur is ringing the same alarm. And it’s a warning the Church cannot ignore.

The signs of compromise are all around us: Numbers have become more important than the message. Churches are offering up ’’Show-Time’’ religion instead of the ’’Old-Time’’ religion. Pastors have turned to the marketing industry to help them draw people in rather than relying on the sovereign power of God.

Until all that changes--until we return to our calling to go into all the world and preach the Gospel without shame--the Church is in danger of losing its impact on society. And that would be our generation’s greatest loss.
