Church on fire

Our church has literally been "on fire" this week as the athletes from Team Impact have crushed concrete blocks on fire, broken baseball bats, and dealt the Devil a body blow with their gospel presentations. The crusade is still going on, but after the first three nights, we have counseled 95 people who said they were accepting Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord!
UPDATE: In five nights, we counseled over 250 people, 177 of whom made professions of faith in Jesus Christ. We are now very busy following up on these individuals with personal contacts. We sent references to 71 different churches for them to follow up, and we are following up on about 100 people who live in our area and have no church home, or already attend our church.

Charles Finney would be proud.

How Ridiculous.

"For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers (and strong men) to suit their own passions" (2 Timothy 4:3).

Indeed, Charles Finney would be proud. Gimmicks and decisional regeneration are alive and well.

Dear "Spurgeon,"
Your reference to 2 Timothy 4:3 makes the false assumption that Team Impact taught false doctrine, which was not the case at all. They preached a clear, Biblical gospel message each night. Your quarrel is with our method, nor our message.
A more appropriate quotation from the apostle Paul would be: "I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some."
1 Corinthians 9:22 (NIV)
