Here’s a video you might enjoy. Doug Wilson considers reasons that the gospel is offensive to unbelieving man. He identifies the gospel as inherently offensive and declares that this offense is part of God’s design. He also considers the additional offense that believers sometimes sinfully add to the gospel.
Towards the beginning of the talk (which is 50 minutes long) Wilson has a remarkable consideration of righteous Lot in Sodom. He draws a comparison between Lot and the church in America, indicating that compromising with the world is a recipe for misery.
