If I were no longer preaching salvation through the cross of Christ , {NEQ} no one would be offended .
Gal.6:10 10ἄρα οὖν, ὡς καιρὸν ἔχομεν, ἐργαζώμεθα τὸ ἀγαθὸν πρὸς πάντας— μάλιστα δὲ πρὸς τοὺς οἰκείους τῆς πίστεως. 10 Therefore , whenever we have the opportunity , we should do {NEQ} good to everyone {NEQ} especially to those in the family of {NEQ} faith .
