The goal of evangelism…

The goal of evangelism should never be getting someone to pray a prayer. Rather, we should encourage them to follow Jesus. Our sense of safety can’t come from simply repeating a series of words, even if well-intentioned at the time. When we emphasize deciding for Christ instead of living for Him, we often get spiritual miscarriages instead of spiritual births.

Greg Koukl, from Dear Friend, p. 130
