Evangelism truths

True evangelism is INTRUSIVE
True evangelism is CONFRONTATIONAL
True evangelism is UNPREDICTABLE
True evangelism requires prayer
True evangelism requires a heart for souls
True evangelism requires more than cookie cutter presentations

There are many that have adopted a theology concerning evangelism based upon their own comfort and their fears, which always produces a theology that would present a gospel that is void of urgency, void of eternal reality. Today is the day of salvation!

This may take some by surprise, but it's often BETTER to NOT have a 'nice' experience when you evangelize. WHAT? It's no comfort when you've poured out your heart, pressing the realities of the gospel and the condemnation men are under, to have your listeners reply with respect 'thank you, preacher, that was a nice message'. NO NO NO, there's NOTHING NICE about it, it would be better that they were filled with rage and attempting to KILL you then to have no response. This verse comes to mind: Mt 21:28-31
28 “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ 29 He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. 30 Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. 31 Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said to Him, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you.
