For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
1 Corinthians 2:2
The foundation of our faith is what is revealed and preached by the apostles in the Bible: Jesus Christ and him crucified. The Son of God died and was resurrected for our sins. We cannot forego the Cross of Christ and preach only about “God’s love”. It is not love to ignore sin and propitiation in preaching because we must proclaim to lost sinners the only way to be saved.
