â€śUnstoppable: The Victorious Gospel.â€ť Those Crazy Corinthians! Part 5 1) Preaching the foolish message of the Gospel is the only ordained engine of witnessing for God. Regardless of the media used the Gospel must never be compromised.(1 Corinthians 1:22-25) 2) Many people demand signs and wonders or they will not submit to Christ. This argument sounds reasonable at first, until we study scripture. (Luke 16:19-31) 3) People who deem themselves wise feel they are too smart to believe a Gospel of nonsense. This argument also seems reasonable until we examine scripture. (Acts 17:16-34) 4) We are to storm the gates of Hell in this world by faith and accept the consequences of preaching the Gospel. God will accept nothing less from his people. (Numbers 13:17-33)

Accordingly, it is used dozens of times in the NT for what authenticates the Lord and His eternal purpose, especially by doing what mere man can not replicate of take credit for.
