Greg Laurie To The Next Generation: "Let's Not Sacrifice The Gospel For Coolness"

In a video recently published by PureFlix to Facebook, Pastor Greg Laurie offered an urgent, important message to the members and influencers of Christianity's next generation: we must not "sacrifice the Gospel for 'coolness'". Hear his crucial warning in the video at the end of this article!

Laurie, founder of Harvest Crusade and Harvest America and the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, had an early life of wrong turns and bad choices. As a result, he has a real heart for the lost and backslidden:

"I was a 17-year-old kid. I was using drugs every single day. I was going in the wrong direction in my life," Laurie said. One day, he stumbled upon a Bible study on the lawn of his high school, and his life was changed forever! 

While eavesdropping on the study, Laurie heard someone make a bold statement: "Jesus said, 'You're for me, or against me.'" Those words pricked his heart and he wondered, "Am I against Jesus?" Laurie's spirit was so touched that he embraced Christ that very day.

Hear Pastor Greg's timely message to those who are just as he was, young and aching for truth, in the video below:
