Are you drinking a watered-down gospel?


Christianity LiteChristians need a wake-up call.  We are living in a more of me less of God world where we have diluted the message to suit our own needs and desires.  We want blessings without obedience and comfort without sacrifice.  Our churches are taking on characteristics of the world so that people will come to church.  People aren’t being changed.  They are being entertained.

In Glen Berteau’s “Christianity Lite, he says, “Christianity Lite promises we can live the way we want to live and do what we want to do. The kind of life Jesus offers is very different.”  What if we died to ourselves and our desires and lived our lives totally and completely for Jesus?  What if we refused to absorb the new gospel and demanded the church preach repentance and sacrifice?

Berteau, senior pastor of The House Modesto in Modest, California, is bold in this new book addressing the issue many churches face today—balancing the demands of the “me generation” with the demands of the gospel.  The only way to find meaning in this life is outside of ourselves; however, the world wants us to believe life is all about us.  Instead of finding a compromise, Berteau recommends presenting the real thing—the narrow way—which is the only way to change lives.
