Now, why don’t I believe we will have another evangelist like Billy Graham in this nation? Because today’s culture is nothing like the culture he spoke to in past decades! The approach he used, preaching a message that began with repentance and putting your faith and trust in Christ, was very effective in its time. But, while the message hasn’t changed, our approach to delivering this message to a lost world must.
A Culture That Doesn’t Understand
Our culture doesn’t understand that they were created by God and that they are therefore accountable to him. They don’t understand that, because God’s Word can be trusted, what it says about salvation can be trusted too. They don’t understand what sin is, so they can’t understand their need for repentance and salvation. We can’t just start with a message of repentance anymore.
We can’t just start with a message of repentance anymore.
First, we need to go back to the beginning and explain the origin of sin and death, establishing the Creator God as the one true God and defending the truth of God’s Word. Only after this can we clearly present the gospel message! In fact, for many, we need to answer their questions about the “book” (the Bible) itself, as so many today believe science has supposedly proved the Bible is a book of mythology.
I explain why we need a new approach to evangelism, and how to go about it, in my new book Gospel Reset: Salvation Made Relevant. I encourage you to read this book yourself and pick up a copy for your pastor, youth pastor, Sunday school leaders, and others. (To get it into everyone’s hands, we offer bulk pricing.) I truly believe this will be a powerful new resource.
