To God be the glory! The men and woman on this evangelism team are doing a mighty work for the Lord. The only ones that I have co-labored with are Ronnie and Tatsuo. Though I was not present at this open-air baptism service, I have had the privilege of preaching with them in other states. Lord willing I will get to minister with all of them, before we meet on the other side of heaven.
These men are using sound doctrine and sound soteriology while preaching. Nowhere in the Scriptures are men told to “accept Jesus” into their heart. To reduce the Lord Jesus to an ‘acceptance’ is blasphemous. That’s like saying “Lord I’ll tolerate You.” Nor do the Scriptures tell us to have them repeat a sinner’s prayer. But we are told to faithfully preach the whole council of the Word of God, to simply sow His seeds; leaving the results up to Him. When evangelism is done that way, you will have less false converts.
“No sort of defense is needed for preaching out-of-doors; but it would need very potent arguments to prove that a man had done his duty who has never preached beyond the walls of his meetinghouse.” ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
“If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.” ~ Charles Spurgeon.
“Do you want to go to heaven alone? I fear you will never go there. Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you are not saved yourself. Be sure of that.” ~ Charles Spurgeon.
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14).
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
