Despair and the Gospel Cure Part 1: The Beginning

From The Shallows of Youth Ministry to the Depths of Despair, and Back to the Grace of God.

By Daniel Shultz

     The Sad truth about the state of most American Churches grows out of a desire to reach people for Christ. Unfortunately because of a distorted view of Biblical evangelism many churches have abandoned the truth of the Gospel for self help mantras and a Gospel lite that emphasizes love without ever mentioning sin or man’s total depravity or need for regeneration, or even the Imputed Righteousness of Christ, nowhere is this as heinous or as destructive as within the modern youth group.
