American Vision gets its fair share of feedback from readers like you. A concern that is often raised by letter and email writers goes something like this: "Why is your ministry so negative? Shouldn't we be trying to unite Christians and work together instead of bickering over theological differences that don't really matter? Let's just preach the gospel and worry about the other stuff in heaven…" Although each one words it a bit differently, this is the essence of it. In other words, "Can't we all just get along?"
The short answer is no, we can't. Not yet anyway. The main problem with a question like this is that underneath the question is a statement. A statement that basically says that the Bible is only about saving people from hell. Christianity then, becomes nothing more than a one-way ticket through the narrow gate (Matt. 7:13-14). Few there be that find it, but it won't be for a lack of witnessing and leaving tracts with the tip for the waiter. While we appreciate the zeal attached to such a view, it is completely short-sighted and bears no resemblance to the gospel of the New Testament.
