Evil and Evangelism

Rev. DL Foster nails another nugget of Truth to the wall.

RE: The The Manhattan Declaration - A Call of Christian Conscience.

1. We cannot stop evil, we can only inhibit it though holy living, preaching the gospel and refusing to support leaders who are hell bent on legalizing this madness (attention Obama supporters).

2. The growing evil and spread of wickedness is a sign to us. Dont miss it trying to make the world a better place.

Evangelism starts and ends with Faith. God's word has nothing in common or desirable with citizen's of this world. In fact, God's word conflicts with those desiring to remain citizens of this world YET has the power to transform those who know they are sick in sin and in need.

Therefore, any indifference to God's word is an utterly clear sign one is still lost, and it is these folks we must reach. A call to repentance would be better than any "universal" call to "conscience."

1 John 2:14-18 (New American Standard Bible)
14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.

Thanks for this post. I have not had a chance to look at the Manhattan Declaration, waiting until I had time to prayfully read the entire document. But I have been skeptical since I first heard of it.

Macarthur and Sproul both had great commentary on the Manhattan Declaration, the latter of which I posted on my blog. We are clearly in the last days.
