Are the Church's Discipleship & Evangelism Gears Rusty? A Week's Worth of Discipleship Questions

The week before last, my blog post focus was evangelism.  You can see those posts here: Gospel, Evangelism, and Discipleship Tweaking The Rejection of The Gospel is a “Decision” My “Evangelism Method.” Yes, it’s this simple. Are “Evangelizing,” & “Sharing your Faith,” the same thing? Evangelism, Bad Decisions, Bad Statistics, and Urban Legends. An Evangelist’s […]

2000 Years of Top-Notch Theologians were ALL WRONG!

“The church had it all wrong until I came along.”  Ever hear a person speak or read what they have written about a particular theological topic and communicate that statement by inference or suggestion?  On the surface it seems pretty arrogant and bold, but could it be true?  After all, we’ve had many saints give […]

Apologetics is not about "Defending the Faith."

Apocalyptic Scriptures – Good for Evangelism, Bad for Soul-Winning

The use of apocalyptic literature in the soul-winning is pervasive. The use of doom, gloom, and fear, has driven many not to hope, but to desperation. For the purposes of “saving someone from hell,” modern day evangelism may have driven some there by a more direct route. By hell, and for the purpose of this […]

Is The Great Commission the Catalyst for all Ministry in the NT?

  What if the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19,20 , was the Catalyst for all Ministry in the New Testament?  What if every other ministerial function in Church found its genealogy in Going, Making Disciples, Baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that Christ commanded? What […]
