It is that time of year again! Time to once again reconsider the “Candy Cane Gospel” as we prepare to reach out to our community this “Holiday” season. Between the anti-Gospel influence of our Humanist culture and the man centered seeker churches, the temptation is to water down the Gospel and make it a nice fluffy puffy, happy clappy, cake-bake, whip cream, feel good message that pleases man, but has no power to save.
I looked down and read the [tract]. It was “The Candy Cane Gospel”. As I read it, I have to admit, my heart sank, and I began to wonder, is any kind of evangelism better than no evangelism at all?
but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. 1Thes2:4
