What is the main message of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ to the modern world? What is the one common message that the preachers of today are so keen on communicating to their congregants? What is the message that people glued to televisions want to hear from the televangelist?  Your guess is as good as mine. It is the wealth and health gospel in its various forms.

There is so much confusion today as to the message that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ should be proclaiming to the world. Is it the sinfulness of man and his need of being saved through the sacrificial death of Christ? Is it that we are to proclaim to mankind that Christ came into the world to save sinners by grace, and they must come to him through repentance and faith, and thereafter live by faith as they follow Christ? Is it that Christ came, that by faith in him we can escape the fires of eternal hell?
