it was a real "eye-opener" for me, i had always talked with friends about The Gospel without telling them about the law, i sure mentioned about the faults and sin (but not that much, afraid to hurt them), and i didn't talked with them about the law.
Sure the message is Love, because God is Love, but we forget His Righteousness, and His Anger against sin, and His Holiness.
How great can you see His Love, that when He is ready to condemn sinners into hell, and let them perish forever, for every lie, theft, bad word, for every sin, perishing forever, and is still showing His outstretched Hands now in the "days of Mercy", that a sinner can come to The Cross and die with Jesus upon it, and rise with Christ up again. It shows the depth, the pit were he can be saved from and shall be saved from, by accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour, and become a disciple.
When you bring the "full" Gospel, than people dislike it, and reject it and hate it, because it shows the real state of men.
Too bad we want to bring the Gospel too many times, nice, too please them, by bringing a "pleasant" message (without the Law).
And it is true, i experienced it on the times i brought the Gospel, that they say: "i want to think about it" or "i am guilty, but i wanna live my life and pay for it myself" or "shut up" or change the subject, or just laugh.
A great statement Paris Reidhead made was this (when he talked about Wesley, in the sermon 10 Sheckel and a Shirt)
"It wasn't trying to convince good men, that he is in trouble with a bad God. But it was to convince bad men that he deserves the Wrath and Anger of a Good God"
