Here's a typical evangelistic talk. Please don't try this at home:
Life can be great in the far country can't it?
But do you ever consider where all the money came from?
The pig sty isn't far away is it?
Perhaps now's the time to come to your senses.
Here - here's a sorry spiel you can use. Practise it. The words are magic and will guarantee your acceptance from the Father... Let's pray.
Anyone else recognize the pattern?
The father's outstretched arms are begging to be preached. But the spotlight falls on the sty and the speech. Here's some of why that's disastrous.
Later I'll give some thoughts on what evangelism should be like.
