Deeper 2008

The following is a quote from Paul Washer of HeartCry Missionary Society when he was preaching a breakout session at the Deeper Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia a few weeks ago. To view video or hear audio of all of the conference speakers, go here.

"We have no right to water down the gospel offence or civilize its radical demands in order to make it more appealing to a fallen world or carnal church members. Our church's are filled with strategies to make it more seeker friendly by repackaging the gospel, removing the stumbling block and taking the edge off the blade so that its more acceptable to carnal men.
We ought to be seeker friendly, but we ought to realize that there is only one seeker and He is God. If we are striving to make our church and our message accommodating lets make it accommodating to Him. If we are striving to build a church or ministry let us build it on a passion to glorify God and a desire not to offend his majesty. To the wind with what the world thinks about us! We are not to seek the honors of earth, but the honors of heaven."

"If you draw people using carnal means you will have to keep them by carnal means"

~ Paul Washer

Were you taking amazing notes, paraphrasing, or did you order the CDs/DvDs?
