Unchurched Americans Most Resistant to Evangelism Outreach in 20 Years

A new study from Christian Research company Barna Group reveals that unchurched Americans are the most resistant to outreach efforts by the church and friends than they've been in 20 years.

Data collected from 42,855 interviews show that 47 percent of U.S. adults who do not attend church said they were open to being invited to church by a friend – down from 65 percent in 1993.

However study results indicate that personal invitations from friends are the most effective way to draw church visitors compared to other outreaches. ...

No, Mike, I have no more use for left-wing churches Social Gospel then I do for the right-wing. That is not what the church was called for [URL=https://www.gty.org/resources/print/sermons/90-150]]]The Responsibilities of the Church: Evangelism, Part 1[/URL] One of the secondary reasons I left a Methodist churches was because of its political activities. Now I had better reason than that, but other people I think could leave for that reason alone.

Listen to the start of the second sermon of this series. How can a church be a good presenter of the Gospel when is missing in politics.

When you bring up the so-called "Christian Right Movement" you aren't talking about whether churches are Christian or not, you are talking about whether Christians ought to be involved in politics. I merely pointed out you don't tell the "Christian Left Movement" the same thing. I would suggest it's not because you don't think them Christian, for you think that of the "right." I would suggest rather, that you approve of the agenda: government involvement in everyone's personal business, health, security, etc. You've promoted it enough that you really can't deny it. btw, your response reminds me of Bill Clinton for some reason.
Your thoughts on Jim and Bill reminded me of Bill's strategy when running for governor. He would sit on the porches of the unsuspecting and tell the common folks how much he abhored abortion and wished it would never be necessary, but he said it would be worse to deny a woman the right to have one. So, he was the compassionate one; not those who would deny a woman the opportunity to murder her unborn baby.

That sort of thing does remind me of Jim from Lincoln. Good comment.

Mike of N.Y., when have I ever called the liberal churches Christian? I think I always had a bad for the United Methodist Church --as an organization-- and one I have been happy to come from, see my latest entry in the Capital Punishment thread that I have just entered a comment on before this one.
So, why should I tell a liberal church to get out of a behavior, when their behavior as behaving like an actual Christian Church is completely lacking, and I don't consider them even Christian?

I have had good things[URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psychology/mashist.htm]]]American Masonic History--What Are America's True Roots?[/URL] (I think that was good. ) and actually bad things to say about Masons, e.g., [URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Cults/masons.htm]]]Masons (Freemasonry)--Christian or Anti-Christian?[/URL] [URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Cults/masons.htm]]]Masons (Freemasonry)--Christian or Anti-Christian?[/URL] while an interesting article I would say one of the most damning thing about Masonry they believe in works salvation So, I make no comment about their political views, not that they are united in that--apparently--they don't even pass themselves off as Christian. So, I usually reserve my criticism for people who do.

there's only one wing that God cares about and that we are protected under His wings, and the only road that will matter is the narrow one. Institutional identity making is for the pagan.

The Christian Right Movement is a disaster for the mission of Christians!

Ah Jim, if you were honestly independent, you would see it's the[URL=http://www.addictinginfo.org/2011/10/20/the-values-of-the-christian-left/]]]Christian Left Movement[/URL] that goes for government involvement in "social justice," healthcare, welfare, etc. How is it you never call for them to get out of politics?

No, Mike of N.Y., it is because evangelical Christians are sending a mixed message, one mixed in with politics.

Maybe it's because they are now listening more to their mother, the government.

Of course unchurched Americans are most resistant to evangelism because they are under the guidance of Satan to believe that life on this side of the grave is the only thing that matters and to believe the lie of Satan that there is no spiritual realm.
