History of Baptists

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007 at 9:23 pm

One book I recommend to learn about Baptist history is A Concise History of Baptists by G.H. Orchard. One group you will read about is the Waldenses. To get a brief introduction to this group, you can read this post over at What Is Truth:

The Romans’ Road and Sinner’s Prayer

Thursday, April 5th, 2007 at 11:01 pm

For awhile now, I’ve had concerns about the use of the Romans’ Road when witnessing to people. It seems that what started out as a decent outline of what to address when witnessing to a lost person has evolved into a high-pressure sales pitch to get a person to pray the Sinner’s Prayer. This no doubt leads to many false professions and gives false assurance to those who buy into the sales pitch. Many of the people to whom I’ve witnessed in the past couple of years have admitted to praying “that prayer” before, but it was obvious as we talked that they had no idea about sin, righteousness, and judgment.

The guys over at JackHammer have another good article on this subject:

Much of what passes for preaching and teaching in churches today is nothing more than showmanship and theatrics. This is another great read from the guys over at JackHammer:
