Biblical evangelism – Mike Gendron and Bob DeWaay


Acts 20:17-36

The Ephesian Elders Exhorted

17 From Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called for the elders of the church. 18 And when they had come to him, he said to them: “You know, from the first day that I came to Asia, in what manner I always lived among you, 19 serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears and trials which happened to me by the plotting of the Jews; 20 how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house, 21 testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, 23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. 24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

25 “And indeed, now I know that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, will see my face no more. 26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God. 28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. 31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.

32 “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33 I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. 34 Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me. 35 I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

36 And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all.


Dec. 27, 2017.“This presentation given by Mike Gendron thoroughly describes the key issues about the gospel and how God uses it to save sinners. Much of what has been popular in churches changes or excludes important gospel issues. Gendron does a masterful job of correcting misunderstandings and giving biblically sound and practical means of glorifying God by presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ. The presentation is based on Paul’s address as recorded in Acts 20:17-36. This includes repentance, faith, the person and work of Christ, grace, the whole purpose of God, sanctification, and glorification. Many today do not mention God’s wrath against sin and that Christ’s substitutionary death was sufficient to avert God’s wrath against sin for all who believe. Evangelist Mike Gendron also explains many practical ideas about how we can all share the gospel. Throughout the video he mentions many false ideas such as the idea that we need ‘decisions’ or that people are saved by repeating a prayer. I highly recommend Mike’s ministry and this video.”

Comparing Roman Catholicism and Biblical Christianity


Psalm 119:130

NKJV

The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.


Though I’m a former Catholic, I haven’t gone to Proclaiming the Truth, Mike Gendron’s ministry, for learning resources. That will probably change. This morning my husband and I watched this extremely helpful video.



 

Quote of the day – Dave Hunt

.

It’s sad that political correctness seems to rule the day. When it comes to Islam, we must be politically correct; when it comes to Catholicism, we must be politically correct. Rather let someone go to hell than offend their feelings. There is something really sad out there, Tom. Christians don’t think—we don’t recognize that truth is truth. It is black and white; you can’t compromise, you don’t dialogue with God, you don’t re-negotiate with God. The Bible has made it very clear exactly what the gospel is. It’s a matter of justice. God is the one who makes the rules. He created this universe; He created us. We’re going to have to go His way, and Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father but by me.” But these people think that’s too narrow minded.
