Opposition to The Gospel
Paul wrote to the Thessalonians speaking of all the strong opposition that he came up against for just telling the gospel. Maybe this is one of the reasons those who claim to have authority over teaching the gospel has done such a great job in watering down the gospel. They are afraid of the opposition they will encounter if the simple gospel was told and lived out in there everyday lives. It is much easier to walk in the middle than it is to walk on the edge. Too many Christians are driving in the middle of the road and one day they are going to had that head on wreck in which Creflo Dollar alluded to in his rebuke to Eddie Long’s members leaving his church. Only there is no insurance to cover such a wreak in which a man deliberately drives into immediate danger. Speak the truth as it is written and you will receive opposition, even from your own.
