The evangelical church continues to hold to it's plan of salvation even though it is keeping the true gospel from being preached as it ought to be and thus hindering Christ's return (Matt 24:14). The definition of insanity is continuing doing the same thing expecting different results. The insanity must be stopped!
Christ's did not say present the 'plan of salvation'. His command is - "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). We are to preach the gospel and let it do the work of saving every one that believes (Romans 1.16 & 1 Cor. 1:21). The gospel, according to the scriptures, is- "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day" (1 Cor 15:3-4 & 11). Preach it by first asking another if they have heard the good news.
If I ask any christian, "How many people did you preach the gospel to today?" the answer always returns, "zero." How can they preach it if they don't know what it is? One in a thousand christians might lead another to Christ in their lifetime by the church's 'plan of salvation' and yet they continue to adhere to it. This is insanity and it must be stopped (See PLAN OF SALVATION and THE SINNER'S PRAYER on www.preach-the-gospel.org)!
Daily, as we go into the world, we must ask others if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.) or proclaim "good news" then preach - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day." teaching them that believe to preach the gospel as well (See TWO OR THREE on www.preach-the-gospel.org).
Let's stop the insanity!
