Yes, sin is the problem, and the Cross of Christ is the only answer for that problem.
The Cross of Christ has been so little preached in the last several decades that the modern Church does not know anymore where it has been, where it is, or where it is going. Preachers are prosposing every type of solution except the Message of the Cross.
The Word of God clearly tell us "for Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect. This tells us that the Cross of Christ must always be the emphasis of the Message that we minister to God's people (1 Cor 1:17). Apostle Paul is not knocking Water Baptism , but stating that nothing should be the emphasis except the Cross of Christ.
The formula that might help would be:
- Focus: The Lord Jesus Christ (Jn 14:6).
- The object of faith: The Cross of Christ (Rom 6:3-5).
- Power Source: The Holy Spirit (Rom 8:1-2,11).
- Results: Victory (Rom 6:14).
We must never forget the Message of the Cross. If you are interested in learning more abotu The Revelation of the Cross please go to www.jsm.org.
