Lenski - On Sugarcoating the Gospel.
Clown Ministry Is a Gift from WELS Church and Change,
Mark and Avoid Jeske.
"Paul offers no excuse for preachers who desire to eliminate certain teachings of the gospel on the plea that they can thus reach and attract more people than if they insisted also on these teachings. Paul intends to omit, even in his own mind, any addition to the gospel, any admixture, any sugar-coating of it by human, worldly wisdom." R. C. H. Lenski, The Interpretation of St. Paul's First and Second Epistle to the Corinthians, Columbus: Wartburg Press, 1946, p. 89. 1 Corinthians 2:2.
KJV 1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
