Evangelism

There is much confusion in the church about evangelism. I found the below quote succinct and refreshing in a day of popular and confusing views.

"Evangelism is not a making of proselytes; it is not persuading people to make a decision; it is not proving that God exists, or making a good case for the truth of Christianity; it is not inviting someone to a meeting; it is not exposing the contemporary dilemma, or arousing interest in Christianity; it is not wearing a badge saying “Jesus Saves”! Some of these things are right and good in their place, but none of them should be confused with evangelism. To evangelize is to declare on the authority of God what he has done to save sinners, to warn men of their lost condition, to direct them to repent, and to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ".  -  (John Cheesman, et.al., The Grace of God in the Gospel (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1972, 119. From: Dever, Mark. Nine Marks of a Healthy Church (3rd Edition) (9Marks) (p. 136). Crossway. Kindle Edition.)

"The Need for Reformation in Evangelical Ecclesiology."

2017 G3 Conference — Session 11 — Voddie Baucham

"There are those who are called to lead in the church and those who are to follow. Egalitarianism, reactions to abuse and so on have lead us to a place where we recoil at any assertion of leadership.... The text says, obey your leaders and submit to them. Folks I don't write the mail I just deliver it. You don't have to like that, but you cannot argue with it. The bible makes it clear that there exist within the church spiritual leadership. Even within the context of that leadership, we always see that referred to in the plural... you see leadership here it is in the plural....the idea is that the church is lead by a group of men and yes I did say men". - Voddie Baucham

The Importance of the Local Church - Paul Washer

2017 G3 Conference Session  6

"Young people this is a command, 'Hebrews 10:24-25 - 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,  25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.' This is not talking about getting together in a coffee shop. It's talking about getting together in a true local church with true biblical leadership. This text is proof positive that if we are not committed to a local congregation of believers we are not walking in the will of God!" - Paul Washer
