The Gospel Should Not Be Via an Appeal to Masses
Nowhere in [1 Cor. 9] or in the New Testament does Paul advocate communicating the gospel by means that appeal to the masses. Becoming “all things to all men” does not refer to an offensive strategy of inventiveness, creativity, persuasiveness, or accommodation to new modes of evangelism that key in on the latest public novelty. Paul’s references here are purely preventative. He simply wished to eliminate any nonessential barriers that would hinder his proclamation of the gospel.
