MiniMatt: Inoculated Against the Gospel

One of the most difficult mission fields is in the buckle of the Bible belt.  Don't believe me? Ask any pastor who lives in a part of the country characterized by "a church on every corner and a preacher up every tree".  Our society has just enough Jesus that we don't need any more.  We have just enough Gospel that it really wont infect us. It may make us uncomfortable from time to time, but there'll be no "gospel outbreak" happening any time soon.  You see, many want to be a Christian, to be saved.  The problem is, few want to follow Jesus.  To follow Jesus is to be like Him, not just a distant observer and admirer of His ways.
