this is poor scholarship and part of the heresy of Nicolatitianism that Jesus said he hated in Revelation. SHAME on him.

Both! No excuse for neglecting either. In this regard, don't take the famous advice of St. Francesco of Assisi.

Best to approach this question by first asking "What is the Gospel and which one is more urgent?" Jesus Christ is the only one who could and did ever truly perfectly "live" the gospel. That's what qualified Him to be the Savior and do for us what we could not do for ourselves- which is to meet God's requirement of sinless righteousness. Once we have heard and trusted in this Good News Truth ourselves, then we are supposed to share it with others before they die without it. One of our challenges in the American Church today is for Christians to more "urgently" "preach" the Gospel. We might be surprised at the results like seeking first the Kingdom, Holy Spirit inspired revival, persecution, sooner rapture, second coming, stuff like that.

I think News calls for a response, at least from those who understand it... news of an impending natural disaster generates a visible reaction as people evacuate or dig in... news of a popular performer announcing a tour date results in crowds lining up for tickets.... whatever the news, people respond in such a way that their actions can easily be attributed to the news they had heard.... Living the Gospel is a response to the news of Gospel... In and of itself it is not the news... some observers may simply "copy" the behaviors of those who have heard the news, others will tune in to hear it for themselves... I think the key to living the gospel is not simply to inspire observation in others, but to interact with them and tell them what channel to tune in to...

Faith comes by hearing the Word of God 'The Gospel" --- a don't agree with the comment that we are enemies with God --- Can we live the Gospel? I think we can try as much as possible and that in it's self betters our lives when we don't walk the talk is when people calls us Christians Hypocrites and rightly song so if someone asked me what is more important to preach the Gospel or to Live the Gospel I would say both --- to introduce people to a personal relationship with God and bible study and the wonderful Promises and what CHrist has really done for us we have to preach Talk the Talk - to serve as an example to people to our children and our friends after they hear us talk the talk we gotta walk the walk or at least try as hard as we can - Faith comes by hearing but also people learn better by example.

Really we should live in gospel than preaching.
