Why Modern “Evangelism” is Not Evangelism At All

Instead of seeking the elect by presenting food for sheep, the preached Word of God which the Holy Spirit uses to convict the elect of their sins, many are seeking the bottom line: numbers. Since numbers have often become the standard by which to judge a ministry’s ‘success’ and, not wanting to offend or drive people away, much of the modern ‘church’ is no longer preaching the sinfulness of man or the bloody offense of the cross. As a result, the ‘church’ is offering the wrong kind of food. Instead of food for sheep, much of today’s ‘preaching and evangelism’ is food for… goats, and goats are now everywhere!”
