Forty Converts, One Saved

November 27th, 2007 | 1 Comment | Church Issues, Quotes Forty Converts, One Saved |  Facebook

“In one heartbreaking incident of modern evangelism, forty converts were contacted as a follow up to their evangelism experience, and only only one person of these forty was found who appeared to be a Christian. So although one lady may have been reached, we must ask ourselves, what were the effects of the encounter on the thirty nine? And this is a questions we must ask ourselves, because some of these people may have left believing their eternal destinies were determined by their decisions, which is a fatal confidence if no change was wrought in their hearts and lives. The others may have concluded that they have experienced all that Christianity has to offer. Failing to feel or see any promised change in themselves, they have become convinced that Christianity is a fake and that those who hold it are either self-diluted fanatics or miserable hypocrites.”

One Response to “Forty Converts, One Saved”

  1. This is so true James, good thoughts. As a pastor, my mind has been changed about the issue of salvation and how it is truly received. I used to be that “just pray this prayer” guy, not anymore. See my blog for a great story about a message I gave on adultery and an audio of a teaching I gave Easter morning titled, “The truth about Hell” Love to hear your and anybody else’s comments!

    Blessings,
    Chris
