The Gift of Evangelism posted by John Sorensen on Aug 22, 2016
Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t have the gift of evangelism?” Maybe you’ve even said it. Well, good. I’m glad to hear it! This is John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion International. Now, the reason I’m glad to hear you don’t have the “gift” of evangelism is because, there’s no such gift. Maybe you’re saying, wait a minute, I know I’ve read that in the Bible. But what you’ve read is about the “role” of the evangelist. Think about it, when God tells us to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel,” He doesn’t say “some of you go” or “those who feel lead go,” He says, ”Go.” That means every believer is charged with and has the privilege of proclaiming the Gospel to our lost and dying world. My friend, Ed Stetzer of Lifeway Research has written a great article on this topic. To read the article and to see the interview I did with Ed, visit ShareLife.today where you can learn more about this unbiblical idea that many Christians now believe.
