I am not in the business of trying to downgrade any other believer’s efforts to win souls. I am just of the opinion that we are often too casual, and there are too many tricks that can be used to make soul-winning encounters completely “painless” and at “no cost” and without any “inconvenience.” Some of the unsaved with whom we deal on the “quick and easy” basis have such little preparation and are so ignorant of the plan of salvation that they would be willing to bow their heads and “accept” Buddha or Zoroaster if they thought they could get rid of us in that way. To “accept Christ” in anything like a saving relationship is to have an attachment to the Person of Christ that is revolutionary, complete, and exclusive! It is more than joining some group that you like. It is more than having enjoyable social fellowship with other nice people. You give your heart and life and soul to Jesus Christ, and He becomes the center of your transformed life!
Selah! Would our churches be stronger Spiritually if we were to come to grips with the implications of this article? One wonders! Ron
