-THE TRUTH WILL ALWAYS OFFEND THOSE WHO DON'T LOVE THE TRUTH-
Back in 1981, an article was written,
Wrong with the Gospel ? by Keith Green. This is a study of what has been taken away, what has been added and
the final results of adding these things and what we need to do to correct the
problem. It's to point out the horrible weakness in today's modern methods of Evangelism and to lift up the power of Jesus's ancient methods that work newly today.
