Good people who sincerely care about the lost, but who don’t know that God is glorified in the Gospel, turn to whatever medium will attract a response.
So today we are awash in entertainment, emotional manipulation, personality cults, lying testimonies, false conditions, the creation of effects that play upon the will and influence feelings.
