I have been a missionary since 1991. I have been involved with many many groups who come to visit the field, help missionaries, leave, then write these glowing reports of hundreds, even thousands saved. I have also been with people who preach to mass crowds and ask people to raise their hands, pray a prayer, then tell them they are saved. I believe in confrontational soul winning. I believe in preaching the gospel to every creature. I believe in giving invitations. My question is this. Where do we draw the line between giving the gospel and offering salvation to all who respond in faith and repentance to the Word of God and making the gospel a cheap, easy, non-commital "fire insurance" type of faith? Is there a balance to be struck between easy believism and Lordship Salvation? I hope this thread sparks a healthy dialogue with the brethren.
