A poster says that using the 10 commandments may not be appropriate in todays day and age and I have to ask why? Do not the verses in my signature say that THE LAW is what converts the soul and enlightens the eyes? Why are the 10 commandments not appropriate for people today? Why should we use "evidences" to persuade people rather than just preaching the word of God and calling them to repentance? Sure many have been ticked off because I have confronted their sin but thats Biblical. In his most excellent book Hells Best Kept Secret Ray argues for the use and return to the 10 commandments as way to do evangelism. He makes many strong cases from scripture and not from RESULTS. Scripture is the authority and not results or the response. I applaud the evangelist whom does not bring a single person to the Lord his entire life but remained faithful and preached the word of God by using the 10 commandments, over the multitude of false converts that have made professions of faith in many churches. Many of these fundamentalist evangelist for example I fear are bringing in many false converts and boasting about it! I cat say for certain but the "easy believism" gospel runs afoot in the Fundamentalist movement. A great book http://www.livingwaters.com/helps/HellsBestKeptSecret.pdf Jesus is the example and we need to follow him. Yes he spoke with Jews, but so what as the law is written on the heart of all mankind. Know I understand that sometimes we may not be wise to use the 10 commandments. I heard a good argument from a Reformed baptist Pastor once on this and I concur that sometimes we would be wise to WAIT before bringing in the law, and show the gospel in other ways. However these instances are seldom.
