Continuing with John MacArthur "...listing the negative effects of the superficial brand of preaching that is so rife in modern evangelicalism..."
"It demonstrates appalling pride and a lack of submission. In the modern approach to 'ministry', the Word of God is deliberately downplayed, the reproach of Christ is quietly repudiated, the offense of the gospel is carefully eliminated, and 'worship' is purposely tailored to fit the preferences of unbelievers. That is nothing but a refusal to submit to the biblical mandate for the church. The effrontery of ministers who pursue such a course is, to me, frightening."
