[Fundie is aghast at the idea that preaching that sinners burn forever in a literal lake of fire isn't the best way to win sheep to the flock.]
I believe modern day preachers have been intimidated by the religious liberals and non-believers. Today, preaching about Hell is not cool... It's just not done... Makes you a Bible-thumper. Hellfire and brimstone sermons make you an "ineffective" fossil.
Somewhere church leaders became intimidated by the name-calling... And took the bait. They retooled the message to make it more palatable to the world... And they became Cool.
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
