    Just wondering, since there seems to be quite a long rather dismal list running on the Board of so-called heretics, etc., of people who profess to be evangelists and profess to be our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, who don't seem to meet the BB criteria of saints. :rolleyes:

    Good point Lady Eagle!

    Maybe the more rigid ones would agree that Paul was a true Christian evangelist. But they'd probably find fault with him too! And that Jesus guy - way too liberal! Too forgiving!

    Couldn't agree more! [​IMG]
    I won't mention the names of these men of God, but someone always has something to say about every well-known one that is brought up! Where's the idea we hear so often that if just one soul is led to the Kingdom as a result of one's work, it is worth it?

    Remember Jesus was viewed as a liberal too.

    Matthew 12:1-5, "At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples became hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat. But when the Pharisees saw this, they said to Him, "Look, Your disciples do what is not lawful to do on a Sabbath." But He said to them, "Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, he and his companions, how he entered the house of God, and they ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for him to eat nor for those with him, but for the priests alone? "Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath and are innocent.

    Jesus was called a liberal and a hyper fundamentalist. He was condemned by both groups. He still is today. Neither group knows what to do with Him. Jesus is too radical for both groups. He has not called us to be conservative. He has called us to be radical Christians.

    I thought the question was about a present evangelist?

    As for being "rigid," I don't think it's rigid to reject teachings that go against God's word.

    How many well-known evangelists are there today? I would say Ravi Zacharias and Tony Palau are two that seem to be sound in their preaching.

    I can't really think of that many evangelists.

    Never heard of them, Mark! Are these all Baptist evangelists or from other churches? Do they preach around the country?

    No, everybody's favorite to trash is Billy Graham. Can't we show some respect at least?

    Truthfully, I can't think of one right now.

    I don't trust any of them right now.

    I am not big on the role of the revivalist. Too often for my taste they have become "glamour boys" of the ministry.

    No need to reply with an attack. This IS NOT a condemnation of all evangalists, just a personal observation.

    Billy Graham. This man has been faithful to the Lord for 56 years and has preached to more people than anyone else in history. It looks like he's going to die in the pulpit. He's a GREAT man of God.

    Well, I agree with you, but Billy Graham doesn't meet BB approval, so we can't count him "in." :rolleyes:

    Oh, yes. It's on the Internet, branded as a heretic, along with the rest of them, and not only that, he's a Promise Keepers "promoter." :eek:

    I wonder what LadyEagle would call an evangelist who was an A-Mill or Post-mill who taught that God has been through with the nation of Israel for 2000 years? Hmmm

    Misguided. And I would pray the Holy Spirit would convict him. [​IMG]

    It's not worth it. To put it the way God did, Obedience is better than sacrifice and to harken than the fat of rams. God wants your obedience, not your success. Evangelists who disobey God are to be exposed and separated from. Why is the biblical teaching and loyalty to the word of God so missing in our modern Baptist churches? We seem to have a generation of people who have no idea what God said, and are not being taught discernment in these matters. All they look at is speech and numbers. There is no discerning look at obedience.

    To answer the question, why not do the biblical thing and train the evangelists in our churches to go out and share the gospel. This traveling revivalist is certainly not a biblical office. You don't see Paul or the apostles doing it. When they went somewhere, they spent time teaching and training. Let's do it God's way and do evangelism through the local church.

    Tim is a dear friend I've known for years. Dynamic preaching, heavy Bible content rather than 1 verse and 20 stories to stir emotion. When he shares what God did at a meeting, it is exciting to hear.

    (He words it like "8 of God's elect responded to the Gospel message and repented and put their faith in Christ". To a Calvinist like me, that cheers my heart!!)
