In these days when all kinds of strange ideas are being heralded as helping the Church accomplish her task, it may be necessary to remind ourselves that:
The purpose of Christ’s Church is not to promote the Church (or worse A Church), but rather the LORD of the Church.
The goal of Christians is certainly not to exalt “Christianity” but to extol Christ.
Gospel preaching is not meant to magnify the skill of the preacher, but to proclaim the glory, wisdom and mercy of the Saviour.
And the ONLY seed available that grows into eternal life is the word of God, as found within the pages of the Bible.
Much error results with confusion on these issues; for if we misinterpret our role or our goal; pragmatism, proselytism and professionalism and will dull the sword of our evangelism.
