Thursday is for Discipleship
I was doing some research in TEDS library last week and ran across an interesting comment by Joe Aldrich. Speaking on the difficulty of getting believers to actually tell other people what they believe, the former President of Multnomah Bible and author of Lifestyle Evangelism wrote:
“The only way you’re ever going to get old-time Christians involved is to somehow tape their mouths shut, bring them into a group of brand-new Christians, and just let him listen and catch some of that fire [of new believers].”
Joe Aldrich, Discipleship Journal, vol. 54, 1989, p. 16
What do you think? Is it possible to infect older Christians with a desire to and behavior of evangelism? Why? Why not?
