There's evangelism - and then there's evangelism...!

Another interesting insight to evangelism by Sweet et al...

"Best-Case Scenario: Inviting others into a relationship with God, so that the Holy Spirit can make Christ come alive and live in them, so that they can live in God's fullness and providence, so that they can participate in God's missional community, so that God's will can increasingly be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Worst-Case Scenario: Forcing unwilling Christians to force their beliefs on unwilling people for the sake of the church, because it needs more seats filled; teaching people to communicate an authentic message of the Good News in forced and artificial ways".

(A is for Abductive Sweet et al.)
