Southern Baptists urge their members to evangelize more
The Southern Baptist Convention, which is launching a new national campaign to bring unbelievers to Jesus, is up against a major obstacle: motivating its own members to evangelize.

But it may be the only effective way to reach people, according to a survey of 15,173 people by LifeWay Research, a Christian research firm.

Southern Baptist evangelize? I wonder how many times that was put up for a vote? Conventions are not what Jesus had in Mind when He founded His Church. Independent Baptist Churches can follow there roots back to Jesus Christ (Trail Of Blood). We don't need a majority Vote to Know that Mark 16:15 is still in the Bible (KJV) and that is the FINAL WORD!

Believing in sovereign election does not decrease the need to preach the gospel to others, it actually motivates people to do it, because one never knows who are the elect.

It also removes the fear some have because it depends not on our technique or persuasiveness, but on the clarity with which we declare God's word. The point is to speak the gospel clearly, fearlessly, and authoritatively, and leave the rest up to the Holy Spirit. (How much more fearful to imagine that our failure to do a good job might result in a sinner spending eternity in hell?)

Sow the seed, declare the word, water with love and attention and teaching, and let God give the increase.

Of course, as Kenny hints at, many of the Baptist brethren tend to preach at least once a month on giving or (worse) tithing, rather than focusing on telling people who God is and what Jesus has accomplished for us. They would do much better to teach the folks they have in the pews by systematic, expository preaching. This would equip the others who sit under the teaching to do what God has for them to do - but I have already gone beyond what most in the Convention consider "church," I suspect...

Amusing, Kenny, I hope there isn't too much truth that. Too much hyper-Calvinism in the Southern Baptist Convention, Scott?

Anyway, the article just stated one obvious thing, one is to put others onto The Roman Road or for you who would rather read it, Treading the Roman Road.

The Southern Baptist Convention has been all about nickels and noses since I was growing up in the 1960s. There are an awful lot of people making a VERY handsome living off the Southern Baptist Convention.

What's haunting them is the dramatic decline in the number of nickels they are taking in due to the decrease in the number of noses in the pews.

The "make a decision for Jesus" culture is coming back to haunt them, I guess. Neighbors probably see no reason to evangelize, since almost everyone in Southern Baptist territory has made a decision for Jesus one or more times in their lives. Why evangelize? Even if they did, the person would just say they'd made a decision for Jesus.

They ought to listen to Paul Washer's 10 indictments and get back to historical Baptist doctrine.

People talk to their neighbours about things that are important to them. If this is not happening I would be inclined to look at the preaching and teaching they are getting.
If good teaching is occurring, is it being bathed in prayer? It's not about programmes it's about a relationship with God and other Christians.
Get the people reading the Bible.
