Some churches are losing people because they have failed to preach the “real Gospel” and are instead only offering “feel-good moments”, apologist Ravi Zacharias has said.
Speaking to Fox News, he said that while evangelicals had “grown in numbers”, mainstream churches were struggling because they were drifting from the main message of the Bible.
“Some of the mainliners have lost numbers and they should’ve lost numbers because they lost the message,” he said.
“If you’ve lost the real Gospel, people are going to say, ‘Why am I coming here? Is this an ethical society or a feel-good moment on Sunday morning?’
He said that the growing churches were the ones “where the Gospel message of Jesus Christ is being given to the young and to those who are even thinking seriously about what life is all about”.
The popular speaker and author went on to say that there had been a shift in the debate around faith over the last few decades from whether God existed or not, to “more existential” questions.
“All the questions you ask can only be answered after you have found the answer to the first question: Why you actually exist,” he said.
