Here's an interesting and challenging article I ran across on the web. "Lifestyle Evangelism" vs. Soulwinning A lot of Christians attend churches where they talk about getting people saved. Very few Christians are actually seeing people getting saved. The difference is between "Lifestyle evangelism" as practiced by a lot of churches and old-fashioned Soulwinning as practiced in the Bible. What are these differences? I've listed a few: 1. Lifestyle evangelists go on visitation. 2. Personal Soulwinners go Soulwinning. 3. Lifestyle evangelists give out tracts to salve their consciences and to be read later by the lost person. 4. Personal Soulwinners use tracts to introduce themselves and to read to the lost person as they give the plan of salvation. 5. Lifestyle evangelists drive around and wave at people. 6. Personal Soulwinners get out and talk to people. 7. Lifestyle evangelists choose carefully who they talk to. 8. Personal Soulwinners talk to everybody. 9. Lifestyle evangelists use every new program that comes along. 10. Personal Soulwinners use God's tried and true program. 11. Lifestyle evangelists talk about themselves and their church. 12. Personal Soulwinners talk about Jesus and His power to save. 13. Lifestyle evangelists think if they "live the life" people will notice and someday want to get saved. 14. Personal Soulwinners know that "living the life" includes talking to others and telling them how to be saved! 15. Lifestyle evangelists hang baggies on doors and have soulwinning "contacts." 16. Personal Soulwinners look folks in the eye and have converts! 17. Lifestyle evangelists expect sinners to come to them for information about salvation. 18. Personal Soulwinners rely upon God to have somebody waiting for them to GO to and to GIVE information about salvation. 19. Lifestyle evangelists wait until "people are ready" to get saved -they do a lot of waiting! 20. Personal Soulwinners "wait upon the Lord" - they spend most of their time Soulwinning! 21. Lifestyle evangelists use modern "Bibles" so that they can be understood. 22. Personal Soulwinners use the preserved word of God so that the Gospel can get through! 23. Lifestyle evangelists preach a works/"Lordship" Salvation. 24. Personal Soulwinners preach salvation by Grace and nothing else! 25. Lifestyle evangelists spend a lot of time accusing Soulwinners of preaching "easy prayerism" or " easy believeism." 26. Personal Soulwinners spend a lot of time Soulwinning and seeing people saved! 27. Lifestyle evangelists get mad at Soulwinners who are getting the job done. 28. Personal Soulwinners get mad at sin and the devil! 29. Lifestyle evangelists are lazy buzzards who have fallen for the Devil's lie. 30. Personal Soulwinners are crazy nuts who want to punch the Devil in the eye! 31. Lifestyle evangelists have a real burden to reach folks with a lot of "disposable income" who can tithe. 32. Personal Soulwinners have God's burden to reach sinners! 33. Lifestyle evangelists can be found knocking on doors in the finest neighborhoods. 34.
