How many of us like to listen to lies? Now be honest with yourself. Would you rather listen to a sermon that tells you everything will be fine when you know in your heart that it will not be? Too many Christians and even church leaders and pastors coddle people to the point that they bend the Word of God to make people feel good.
Don't get me wrong; I want to be sensitive to the needs and feelings of others, but not at the expense of following God's leading.
