Simplicity. It is the champion of clear communication. With a simple message, said simply, more people are apt to accept what is being said at face value and move on with their lives. Many churches have taken this approach when presenting the Gospel.

Throughout my lifetime, I have been told on a fairly consistent basis that I am arrogant. This has generally been said to me by those above me in status, position, or authority…very rarely has this been said to me by my peers.
Throughout life, one of the inevitable experiences of every human being is that of loss, grief, and suffering. Reminders of the decisions we make every day and how, without Christ, we would choose nothing but death and rebellion.
