GospelWhat are some ways the Christian gospel is perceived in our culture
In our culture today, people believe that they can accept Jesus as their personal Savior, but do not have to follow Him. They feel if they are saved, they can still do what they want and not have any punishment for what they have done. People want to be saved, but they also want to live their life how they want to. Our whole legal system is based off/on the bible. Think of it in the worldview perspective: How far can you drive without passing some form of church?
What are some specific moral reasons people may reject the Christian gospel
A lot of people who reject the Bible on moral reasons do so because of all the hurt and slavery that our God has allowed. Most civilized people believe slavery is immoral; however, the Lord allowed it, “therefore the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years” (Judges 3:8 King James Version), “So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years” (Judges 3:14). God also ordered women and children killed, “Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children; and women” (Ezekiel 9:6). There are so many verses where the Bible talks about killing man, woman, and child. Also, the bible talks about killing people for homosexuality as well as worshipping false prophets. The Bible also talks about killing women who are not virgins on their wedding day as well as killing one who commits adultery (Genesis 15:16; Exodus 23:27-30; Deuteronomy 2:7-6; Josh 8:24-26; Exodus 22:17; Leviticus 20:13; Hosea 9:11-16; Isaiah 14:21; Ezekiel 9:5-7; 2 Chronicles 15:12-13; Genesis 19:15; Genesis 15:16). I will say that morality has changed over the years; however, when skeptics read these passages, they become to reject to word of God.
