Archive for the ‘Evangelism’ Category

For those who are not strangers of this blog you will know I do a lot of my evangelism offline and on college campuses.  I don’t think I talk about my evangelism much but I do from time to time on here.  In the post I have written “ and gave my account of an “Intellectually Bipolar Secular Humanist College Student on Sexuality.”

This morning I read Lee’s post on his blog titled “Wonderful News! 28 States Act to Restore Free Speech on Campus.”  This was wonderful news for me to hear.

Most of the time my evangelism does not face any problems with authorities.  But that doesn’t mean it never happen so the more clarity and laws there are protecting campus freedom of speech the better.

Ray Comfort. What Did Jesus Do?: A Call to Return to the Biblical Gospel.  Bartlesville, OK: Genesis Publishing Group, July 25th 2005. 176 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a good book on how to evangelize.  This is written by Ray Comfort, who is quite an evangelist himself.  I love Ray Comfort’s own personal example of being an evangelist.  He wrote this book in an manner that is easy to understand and also practical.  Today’s contemporary church is often filled with bad doctrines and light on the Gospel so there’s a crisis with how Christians evangelize today in a manner that is unbiblical and unfaithful to God and the Gospel.  So this work is much needed.  I personally got this book as part of a discipleship tool with some of our guys in church to train them to think not only biblically about evangelism but to live it out.

“Almost Half of Practicing Christian Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong”

The above statement is the title of a 5 February, 2019 article published by the Barna Group. It caught my attention immediately when I read it and just as quickly prompted the question “What does it really mean?” So I read the article. Here’s some background context from the article:

I know some of you on WordPress has been moved by the post “Sharing (Re-blogging, Social Media) Is Caring” to reblog other posts.

This post is similar to that spirit; but different in application.

I wrote a guest post for the blog God’s Grace, God’s Glory!  Fran Rogers blogs there and her blog is worth the follow for biblical contents.  In addition she has also written books with biblical truths.  I have reviewed one of her books here.

For the guest post I wrote on her blog click HERE.

What follows below is part two of a two part series!  The first post was on Monday.

Starting a Conversation 

In a previous post titled “What is Evangelism?”, the following definition of what it means ‘to evangelize’ was presented: 

To evangelize is to present Christ Jesus to sinful people in order that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, they may come to put their trust in God through Him.” 

The article proposed that this definition defined four important aspects of personal evangelism: 

  1. It defines the mission of the evangelist– “to present Christ”. 
  2. It defines theprimary audience for the gospel message – “sinful people”. 
  3. It defines the problem the gospel message addresses – “our sin”.
  4. It defines the power behind both the gospel message and the response to that message – the Holy Spirit, thus establishing the sovereignty of God in the salvation of men.

Armed with the above definition, and with a burden for a lost loved one, friend, or even a perfect stranger, you are ready to go. How does it start?

What is Evangelism?

Many people use the word evangelism in different ways. However, what does the Bible say about this important word? When we look to Scripture, we run into a problem: there is no direct-equivalent word for our English word evangelism in the New Testament. Its origin is rooted in three Greek words:

euangelion—“gospel”—to describe what is said (Mark 1:14–15)

euangelistes—“evangelist”—to describe the person who is telling the gospel (Acts 21:8; Eph. 4:11)

euangelizo— “to proclaim the gospel”—to describe the activity of telling the gospel (Rom. 10:15).

Evangelism, then, is the English term for the act of communicating the gospel, an act conveyed in the New Testament by the verb euangelizo (‘to bring good news’).[i]
