The Voice of the Offended Preacher

In the last few years and especially the last months it seems that the whole world is offended.  Flags are being removed, equal rights are shouting their views, a Confederate Soldier Memorial is vandalized in Denton Texas because it expresses Racism, politicians are apologizing for statements, people are infuriated because a cake baker will not bake a cake for certain people, and on and on and on and on and on it goes.  To quote the old line, "Where it stops nobody knows."

Well for anyone who cares to read my rant I just want to go on record that I am OFFENDED by the following (they are in random order as they come to mind):
Alcohol sales
Bad language in the public schools, public park, stores, and public events
Loud music
Country music
Gothic dress
People using the middle finger while driving
Texting while driving
People skipping church for worldly things
The gospel being watered down
Shallow music in the church
People using electronics while I am preaching
Pre-tribulation dispensationalist
Women preachers
Boys wearing earrings
Parents who will not use a belt on their kids bottom
And, I am offended at people who are offended by what I am offended about!

Just for the record, so as to bring some clarity to my position.  I am a preacher of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the only way to heaven.  Jesus is fully God and fully man.  Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and brought forth by a virgin.  Jesus is sinless.  Jesus is the judge of the universe.  Jesus will throw some people into hell and He will escort His elect into His Kingdom.  Jesus used words like hell, wrath, judgment, repentance, and He used them often.  Jesus excludes Muslims, Buddhist, New Agers, Atheist, Agnostics, Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, and every other works based religion that does not repent and honor Him alone as the only Lord and Savior of sinful man. "Do you take offense at this?" (John 6:61)  Jesus said, "No one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father." (John 6:65)

I will continue to preach that the sinless Son of God came to give His life as a ransom for many.  He died on the cross of Calvary as a substitute for sinners.  He absorbed the fullness of the wrath of God in the place of the elect.  He took the sinfulness of man upon Himself and imputed His perfect righteousness to all who repent and believe.  He rose from the dead on the third day.  He was seen after the resurrection by over 500 people at one time.  He has commanded all men everywhere to repent and believe the gospel.  Those who do will be gloriously saved and those who do not will be forever damned.

If what has been said in this blog is offensive, then REPENT.


  1. Did you mean "Parents who will NOT use a belt on their kids bottom"? I assume there was some typo here.
