Church Evangelism

Holman Hunt's ScapegoatIn all walks of life, people look for scapegoats. A workman swears at his tools, a golfer blames the unevenness of the green, the rugby player wipes his hands on his jersey when he has missed a pass (by way of suggesting how slippery the ball was), the housewife blames her husband when the cooking has gone wrong. Scapegoats are common but they are not really helpful to the church. Scapegoats in the church include the secular society, a new church down the road, people will come back when they get older and so on. ✞

Individuals

EyesHebrews 10:24-25 reads, "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Church evangelism is made up of many parts. If individual members of any organization are sick then the whole body is impaired. If the separate fellowships are in good health, then so is the national organization. The key is with the local Church, and the way to get it moving again to a vibrant joyful community of Christian people is evangelism.
