Pastors are under pressure to excite and impress their congregations with good news. This pressure from the people has caused a twisting of the words of Christ until the message of the cross is hardly recognisable. Today we are returning to the basic truths of Christianity that we must "lose"" in order to ""gain"" Christ. Power will return to the church as we preach that we must sacrifice, suffer and die for Christ. The power of Christ's words cannot be erased by anyone no matter how successful or powerful he is."
