How to live a satisfying life. How to experience joy. How to grow closer with God. How to grow a church. How to have a successful marriage. How to be saved. In a culture of self-help and “do-it-yourself,” I have to wonder if we have lost the true message that Christ has to offer. While many churches are now preaching a false “how-to” gospel, the text of Scripture is so clear, comforting, challenging, and worth so much more than the shallow rantings we hear from most people who presume to follow Christ.
