“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10:14
Romans 10:14 & 1 Corinthians 9:19-23
It’s our DUTY to do everything we can to reach everyone, we can, with the CLEAR MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL.
That means whether you live in a jungle in Africa, live on the streets of Thailand, live in the projects in Atlanta, go to church that has Baptist on the sign, Methodist on the sign, Presbyterian or no denomination at all, whether you drink, smoke pot, strip or work the street corner, or just a religious Pharisee, ALL PEOPLE NEED SOMEONE TO PREACH TO THEM AND REACH THEM WITH THE GOSPEL! How shall they hear without a preacher?!
Call it compromise, call it being ecumenical, call it “birds of a feather flock together” or whatever else you want to say…The Reality is, if you will support a missionary preaching, the Gospel, overseas to witch doctors, demon worshippers, goat worshippers, and everyone else but that same missionary comes to the states and preaches in any church other than baptist and you drop his support because you say he’s “compromising”, then you are a hypocrite and a hireling. That simple.
The GOSPEL IS FOR EVERYONE! Many claim to have the TRUTH yet, they don’t want to reach SINNERS, especially those sitting on pews with something on the sign other than BAPTIST. It’s hypocrisy and God isn’t within 10 million miles of it.
We have a nation full of churches and men that have a FORM with no POWER simply because they have puffed themselves up with PRIDE. They are PROUD to stand for TRUTH while their communities go to hell.
God help us. If we don’t have an awakening in the PULPITS, America is DONE. We will NEVER see Revival unless God’s men REPENT.
1 Corinthians 9:19-23
“For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.”
