    What is the gospel of Moralism?

    I had a meeting with some people this past week who claimed to have a business with a mission of being God-honoring and faith-building. One said that as a Christian, she hopes that people would become nicer and kinder as a result of their service. I asked, "Do all nice and good people go to heaven?"God did not die to make us "nicer."

    Why do Christians try to push their beliefs off on others? I find it offensive.

    Listen to Nancy's answer on the radio program here.Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”Growing up as a non-believer in Jesus, I had the same thoughts.
