In many so-called evangelical churches, the fear of God has been lost and thus, in a real measure, so has a biblical understanding of the love of God. Evangelicalism has become man-centered and, as a result, promotes a view of God that is far less than the reality set forth in Holy Scripture…..
…..We aim too often at giving people what they want instead of following the example of the great Reformed evangelists, whose first objective was to confront men and women with God’s greatness and majesty. Too many of us today present God as more user-friendly than His own Word does. We want to make people feel comfortable, so we avoid telling them anything that will make them uneasy.
