The church of Jesus Christ is tasked with the job of proclaiming the gospel to the world. Seeker-sensitive churches fundamentally fail this job. We cannot present an easy, comfortable self-help kind of message to people with the intention of teaching the gospel later in small groups or Bible studies. The gospel must be preached to the world at the point where the church comes into contact with the world. The Sunday morning service is the public face of the church, and at that Sunday morning service the church must proclaim the gospel, or it is failing to be the church.
