Unpopular Preaching?

“The Christian church does not need more popular preaching, but more unpopular preaching.”

—Walter Russell Bowie

What do you think this means? Is Bowie right?

The Apostle Paul said preaching about Christ would be a stumbling block (unpopular) to some. Even Jesus didn’t preach a popular message.

In my opinion, we preach the Word of God. Period. Not our opinion, not a message to gather a crowd, not a message to entertain. Just preach the Word. It will be unpopular with the self-satisfied and sanctimonious, but it will be a welcome message to the lost and desperate.

What do you think?
