Yes. Hopelessness and despair are at epidemic levels in the world and will become more so before the Lord returns for His church. Quick answers given in a moment of crisis, no matter how sincere, do not fix a broken heart, failed marriages, the sorrow of abuse, anger problems, broken relationships, wrong views of God and a host of other problems.
If churches do not offer real answers to these real problems that people face, people will look for answers from secular sources because their need for answers is so great. It is virtually impossible for a pastor to spend the time necessary to meet all the needs represented in his church, and people should not have to look outside the church. God’s Word has the answers, and the Prasso program of discipleship gives a framework to meet these needs.
