Evangelist Reinhard Bonke

For witnessing and evangelism there is no ‘right’ way, only right principles, principles that can be drawn from the New Testament. The apostle Paul himself said “That I might by all means save some”. The test of what is ‘right’ is whether the Holy Spirit makes it His chariot.

It is unfortunate when certain methods become sacrosanct. We can fight one another for traditions which may be non-functional and the machine itself becomes more admired than the product.   Faithfulness and sticking in a rut is not the same thing. Faithfulness means being faithful to the message. Circumstances may demand a new or radical approach, but the fundamental objective is to reach everyone and touch them with the hand of Christ’s love.
I am amazed by the brilliance of thought being exercised in the world church today. But brilliance may be an intellectual dance on the edge, rather than an effort in the harvest field.  Sadly so much mental effort goes into doctrinal quibbles, technical irrelevancies, exercises in philosophical academics. If we might by all means save some, then one legitimate way is to think how to do it.  Genius is welcome and has a worthy subject in the Gospel.
Sister Vera is a true evangelist. We have met a number of times and talked about these things. Her heart and mind is set to win the lost for Jesus – no matter what the effort or cost. That rings a bell with me. I highly appreciate this faithful handmaid of the Lord and recommend this event to all fellow-Christians.
