WHAT'S WRONG WITH MAKING UNBELIEVERS
FEEL COMFORTABLE IN CHURCH?

On the surface, it makes sense. The Christian's mandate is to make disciples, so why not make church more attractive to unbelievers?

Spice up the presentation. Tone down the preaching. Tell everyone that Jesus will meet their felt needs.

But is making unbelievers comfortable truly the way to make disciples? Does promising the lost that Jesus can fix their lives bring them any closer to salvation, or are we selling them a synthetic gospel that cannot save? For the sake of bigger congregations, are churches today diluting or even neglecting the gospel?

John MacArthur answers those questions and more in Hard to Believe. In this series you'll learn:

  • Why is making unbelievers feel comfortable in church so dangerous?
  • What gives the gospel its power and why are so many of today's churches failing to tap into it?
  • What did God truly promise to those who embrace the gospel?
  • What did Jesus mean when He said "follow Me?"
