    This is a fascinating article. I never knew that the famous New England theologian Jonathan Edwards spent some years as a missionary to the Mohawk and Mohican tribes of Native Americans.

    There are various modern ideas as to how one should preach to those completely ignorant of Christ and the way of salvation, but Edwards had confidence that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation for all people. Read and enjoy!

    If those who are to be saved have been individaly elected prior to the foundation of the world then why would he need to be concerned with contextualization? Contextualization seems contrary to the reformed view of election. Simply preach directly from the word and God will change their will so that they may believe. Contextualization is not needed for that to occur if man's decision making process is not part of responding.
