Jesus Christ did not die on the cross so you and I could have a nice day.
Ministers and teachers who water down the Gospel of Christ in order to make it more popular and appealing may be leading their fun-loving audiences down the road to eternal punishment.
This book is John MacArthur's unflinching, unapologetic treatise on the modern tendency to alter the true message of Christianity in order to meet the whims and desires of a culture hoping for nonconfrontational messages, easy answers, and superficial commitments.
Too many people just want a Madison Avenue Jesus to make them well, make them happy, and make them prosperous. But Jesus Christ isn't a personal genie. He is the Savior. He died in agony to satisfy the wrath of a holy God and to forgive the sins of humankind. Faith in Him demands a willingness to make any sacrifice He asks. The hard truth about Christianity is that the cost is high, but the rewards are priceless: abundant and eternal life that comes only from faithfully following Christ.
I view myself as a simple person and John MacArthur has a way of breaking things down that resonate with my heart. I always knew if I was to follow Jesus I would have to give everything up. I would have to get baptized, lose a lot of my so-called friends and even talk to people about Jesus. It’s all worth it and even through trials and dealing with my past sin God is faithful. John MacArthur talks about the true God in this book and I am so thankful God chose me before the foundations of the world! Thank you John MacArthur for your ministry!!!

I just love John MacArthur!!! He is so clear on his message, simple and direct. No Honey spread around for those who can't handle the truth.

I listened straight through. Afterward, I went to God in prayer for ALL the lost.
