Have you ever seen the bumper sticker that read "Jesus is the answer." This is only partially correct. The answer lies in us preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
"It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching (the gospel) to save them that believe (1 Cor 1.21 & Mk 16.15)." We must tell others the good news (Gospel means good news.) in person with our mouth (Eph 6.19-20 & Col 4.3-4), how that - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose again the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." In so doing we allow others to believe on Christ and be born of God (1 Jn 5.1). It's simple to preach the gospel after asking another if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.).
The gospel is the key to the kingdom of God, but the so-called church, under the direction of the evil one (See THE BIG LIE on www.preach-the-gospel.org.) has taken away the key. They do not enter the kingdom of God or allow them that are entering to enter the kingdom (Lk 11.52, 2 Pet 2.2). The evangelicals have replaced the gospel with a different gospel, which can only be preached from a pulpit which takes a seminary degree. On the other hand, the catholics say: Preach the gospel. If necessary use words (St. Francis of Assisi). None of them are preaching the gospel in the world (person with their mouths) as Christ commands.
Where does this leave His command to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15).”? It's not being accomplished. As I said the key (gospel) has been stolen (Jn 10.10b). Where does this leave the world? Lying in wickedness (1 Jn 5.19). It also hinders Christ's second coming for He will not return for us until the gospel has been preached to every person in every nation (Mt 24.14 & 30-31, 1 Thes 4.13-18).
Yes, Christ is the answer! But unless we begin preaching his gospel in person with our mouths as we ought to the answer remains inactive.
