We'd better be misunderstood

David Wayne (along with Adrian Warnock) quotes D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones this week on salvation by grace alone. If we preach the gospel as we should, Dr. Lloyd-Jones warns, we should expect, like the Apostle Paul, to be falsely accused of preaching "continue to sin, that grace may abound":

That is my comment and it is a very important comment for preachers. I would say to all preachers: If your preaching of salvation has not been misunderstood in that way, then you had better examine your sermons again, and you had better make sure that you are really preaching the salvation that is offered in the New Testament to the ungodly, the sinner, to those who are dead in trespasses and sins, to those who are enemies of God. There is this kind of dangerous element about the true presentation of the doctrine of salvation.

Woh.

if one is not ready to be misunderstood and lied about then they are not ready to be a preacher
