Jesus Came Because God Loved Us - But Why Did He Have to Die?

There is no end to the drift from Biblical truth if the atonement and its purpose is forgotten. Once we measure the love content of the truth by the reaction of the hearer we will change not only our presentation of the message, but the content of the message if people don’t like what we say. As John Piper says, the “offended hearer takes on a power that once belonged only to the Bible.” While the world eats, works, checks the markets, gives money to charities, and gets involved in the religions of the world they are under the fierce wrath of a holy God and they need to know their atonement is in Christ alone for their freedom from the grip of sin.
