Most preachers of our day present the Gospel as an offer by God that the sinner can accept or reject. I have at least three problems with this. (1) The Bible does not teach this. (2) It puts salvation ultimately in the hands of man, therefore salvation is at least partly by works. (3) It denies the depravity of man by implying some capability in man to make use of the benefit offered. Where the Gospel is preached as an offer, THE GOSPEL is not preached.
