When sharing the truth of the gospel, many Christians today have a tendency to water down the “good news” in an effort to make it less offensive to the listener. To one degree, we can appreciate this desire not to offend. To another degree, however, the attempt to water down the gospel has serious ramifications, some of which actually entail an alteration of the message itself. This can lead to a “false gospel,” which Paul describes as no gospel at all since it has no power to save anyone (Gal. 1:6-7).
