JESUS WITHOUT APOLOGIES

Jesus was confrontational. Jesus did not say "you're ok, i'm ok". Jesus said repent. Jesus pointed the finger of judgment on corruption and trespass. Jesus said his way was/is exclusively right. "I'm the way, the truth, the life, no one comes to the Father but by Me", Jn 14:6. Deal with it.

The only say you or I have in the matter is to accept or reject. We can't soften or undo the force of Jesus. Believers make no apologies for Jesus. He is the Savior and there's no other. If we truly represent Jesus, we will be confrontational - "speaking the truth in love", Eph 4:15.

"15 And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved ; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned'", Mk 16:15,16.
Salvation or condemnation are the only choices. Believe and obey Jesus' Gospel or don't.

It's all about love for souls. Considering the obvious truth of Jesus and His words, I conclude that Believers need to be confronting people more and more so people can make the choice. To keep them unaware would be cruel or uncaring. To preach Jesus to the Lost isn't a pride thing and it's not crazy mission to see how many we can make mad. It's got to be love. Love for the Gospel. Love for souls. Believers are the watchmen appointed by God to warn the Lost of impending danger. If we don't speak up, there is guilt upon ourselves. Believing in Jesus, we see that we have no options but to go out and declare Jesus while we have the opportunity. The night is coming when no one can repent.

Let's go out and speak of Jesus without apologies.
