A Famine of Truth in the Land

I believe that the United States is experiencing a famine of truth. I believe it starts in the pulpits of many main stream churches. Why is "sin" suddenly a taboo word. Why is the mention of hell suddenly a possibly offensive thing. Where in the Bible does it say we have to be "tolerant." We are not called to be "tolerant." 2Cor 6:17] Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you,
1John 2:15] Do not love the world or the things in the world. If any one loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.
[1John 2:16] For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.
What is coming from the pulpits of many churches today, and streaming over the airwaves of Christian television is nothing more than "motivational speaking" with a Christian flare. Pastors all across the country are offering an ear tickling sermon in order to keep the offering high. Pastors are afraid to mention "sin" because they would not want to offend anyone and keep them from coming back next Sunday. Churches are more concerned with their attendance numbers than the number of salvations they have. Many, way to many, don't even have an altar call for salvation.
