Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, but we have renounced the)things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. (1 Corinthians 4:1-5)

  1. The analogy of the parachute folders is fantastic. I can’t help but feel troubled when I hear or see a teaching that leaves hell and or the ten commandments out and then issues an “altar call” for the lost. What are they being called to? How can there be repentance with out acknowledgement of sin? Those who are saved with out repentance are saved from what? I attended an event not long ago where nearly the entire stadium came to the floor in front of the stage for salvation, but the law was not taught nor was the reality of hell. I am trying to reach the director of this event to let him know the long term results of this program. The fruit of this event is not good. Failed parachute conversions at that program (Ones I personally know) are walking away from growing in Christ and into darkness today – fully thinking it is ok, because they stood up and went forward for an altar call five months earlier.
