Truth Divides People

The truth divides people. The more fundamental the truth, the deeper and wider the division. The goal of Christian preaching — the goal of presenting the Gospel, the goal of the church — is not just to open the door so wide that we suck everybody in and make them feel comfortable. The goal is to preach the truth to as many people as possible, so that we can sort out the true from the false.
