A no-brainer???

Chapter 7, Radical, by David Platt

It this chapter, Platt answers the question, "What happens to those who do not hear of or accept Christ?" The Bible's answer seems clear, but is unpopular. Without Christ, they suffer eternal damnation.

Is that a narrow-minded view? Yes, at least from a human perspective. But narrow-minded or not, what matters is, is it true? If you believe the Bible, you should accept it as truth.

As a result of that truth, the church has an obligation to declare Christ to the world. It should be a priority. More than having a nice building, or having the greatest speaker. Our passion should be to glorify God before the world as a result of the love that we have for Him. Somehow, showing up for a couple of hours on Sunday morning does not fit the bill.

Does your church have a passion for the lost? Do you? How it that passion expressed?
