After centuries of sending missionaries across oceans and continents, why are there still unreached and unengaged people groups who have not heard the gospel. With all our technology and advanced scientific methods of language development, why are we still failing to evangelize the world? I am not saying that progress has not been made, but considering the rapid expansion of the gospel in the Early Church, something is wrong with our method.
I quote from Oswald J. Smith in his book, The Challenge of Missions, page 100, and ask that you seriously consider his words. “Then why not consider another [method]? A plan tried and tested by the Early Church. A plan fitted to every country the world over. A plan that succeeds wherever it is put into practice. A plan that completely solves the financial problem. A plan through which the Holy Spirit can operate, God’s plan. God’s way!”
Let me just add that the Early Church was successful in expanding the gospel and they did it without budgets, formal education, and organizations. Could it be that these very requirements we have placed on world evangelism have been inhibitors to the very progress we are crying for?
