"Ah, we're just reaching the culture... Don't be so legalistic!" - It's the cry from those who believe that being conformed to the world instead of being transformed by the renewing of our mind actually helps God.
Many of the proponents of "seeker" friendly mentality hold this issue to be a little matter of dispute between those who hold to sound doctrine and those who would rather tickle ears for a season than have men's souls saved for eternity. The apostle Paul, himself, disagreed with these people, though. He said if anyone including angels from Heaven presents any other Gospel than the one you've initially received from the apostles of God and Jesus Christ, let him be anathema (the strongest curse one could give)! Mark Kielar explains why the message will never be able to cater to unbelief because the very message of the Gospel is "Repent AND Believe."
