The blessing of an evangelist who produces online gospel content? Active members get to see him share spiritual food every day. They grow in Christ each week.
Christians who refuse to encourage the caliber of our digital reach in the local congregation? Are as blind as the walls they walk into.
It's called "social" media. And we're on it with Jesus everyday. And so, don't give us garbage saying we're not "social" enough. We're in the church and in the community. We're in all the houses that turn on their devices. And the lost are paying attention. The fallen are being renewed. The faithful, reinforced.
We, proclaiming good news. Have "become all things to all men." Productive in the kingdom. Seeking it first.
Critics creating excuses to persecute? Repent and side with God. For you are useless and fleshly minded vapors. Stop believing your own "feelings" and start trusting the Word of God. For you've heard it said that evangelism is done the world's way. But the Bible says it is done through the narrow path.
"Go into all *digital Nations…"
Some crime-ridden communities embrace immoral lifestyles and music. They promote hate for law enforcement. Yet the minute a result of their behavior produces a dead body? Guess who they call for help? Police officers. These brave men and women risk their lives, some for a "paycheck," others for justice. One day they are told, "we hate you." The next, "you best find my boy's murderer!" A challenge no doubt.
Evangelists face the same persecution, yet on a spiritual platform. We try to teach our people to know the Bible and live according to the commandments. They hate us for it. Yet when chaos affects the family? Guess who they call? We show up and love them. Try to help heal. Give Scriptural evidence and answers to their lives.
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven." - Mt. 5:10
Some believers have no problem "offending" and "pushing people away" with politics. But if one dares do so with the gospel? Well, you're just an "evil wicked un-Christ-like Christian who has no love in his heart whatsoever.”
Political truth is naturally going to "offend" and "push people away." It is going to cause division. And guess what? So will gospel truth. Difference? One has no eternal weight. The other? Heaven or hell.
The prophets. The immerser. Christ. The Apostles. All "offended" and "pushed people away." They created righteous division. Not with hate for mankind. But hate for sin. Panning for gold. Separating the dirt from the precious stone.
Be consistent. It's a flower which doesn't grow in every garden :)
With all love and respect. Please. We are not color blind. The skin we see on the flesh of men? It can have different individual appearance. No alarm. Natural. Wonderfully made in all its shades. And so here is a truth. Most misguided souls screaming "racism" do so at the investment of keeping it active. Shut your mouth and put away the "race" card. And let's be Christians. United. Can we?
