Why so much negative teaching

We have been accused of always being so negative in our teaching. Why not more lessons on peace, joy, love and other such comforting topics and less on strictly obeying the world of God? There is certainly a need for all those “comforting” topics to proclaimed. Indeed “the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:7). And, it is true that we can “rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice” (Phil. 4:4). It was the apostle John who is often called “the apostle of love”, but it was Paul who said, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal” (I Cor. 13:1). There is certainly a need and a place for all such teaching. However, is that what is needed most of the time? Paul told the Thessalonian brethren, “But as touching brotherly love ye need not, that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another” (I Thess. 4:9). One might say that such teaching is the milk for the babes rather than the meat for the mature. The Hebrew writer said of those to whom he wrote, “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat” (Heb. 5:12). As the reconstruction of the walls of Jerusalem progressed in the days of Nehemiah, he told them, “…The work is great and large, and we are separated upon the wall, one far from another. In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us: our God shall fight for us” (Nehe. 5:19-20). They did not waste time and manpower covering ground that did not need to be covered. This brings us to our first real answer to those who want to be continuously comforted with hope, joy and love stories.
