It’s a long one, but well worth reading…
“We’re not preaching a biblical gospel. People are not being convicted of their sins, they’re not being born again, and they are simply following a man-made formula that supposedly promises to improve their lives.
A biblical gospel pricks the conscience and either humbles a man and brings him to the Cross in repentance or it will anger him, offend his pride and send him away even angrier than before he heard the gospel.
That’s the kind of preaching John Wesley did. He brought people to a crossroads that forced them to make a decision between loving God or loving their sin. As Christians, we need to bring people to that point while they still have time to make a decision.”
That was from Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains) in the Pentecostal Evangel on August 17, 2008. I whole heartily agree with him. Too many times we’re seeing people come to church on Sundays only to keep on living their lives as they want to Monday through Saturday. If we truly want to impact the world for our Lord, we need to have such a conversion that people will see the change in us. We won’t have to speak a word.
