Does Our Evangelism Introduce People to the Wrong Jesus?

Nearly half the population of the United States claims to be "born-again." Self-identified "evangelicals" are a voting bloc courted by our major political parties, and a large percentage of citizens attend church services at least once a week. Yet, as we look at the culture around us, God is regularly blasphemed. Professing believers often live no differently from non-Christians, and many churches are captive to the trends of this present age.

Two factors explain this set of contradictory realities. First, the church has failed to preach the biblical Gospel. Secondly, because the church has failed to preach the biblical Gospel, our evangelism has too often introduced people to the wrong Jesus.

By the providence of God, there is a conference that is going to address all these issues.

I would like to hertily encourage you to make plans now to join R.C. Sproul, Sinclair Ferguson, Steven J. Lawson, John MacArthur, C.J. Mahaney, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Joni Eareckson Tada March 13–15, 2008 in Orlando, Florida for Ligonier Ministries' 21st annual national conference, "Evangelism According to Jesus." During three days of worship, fellowship, encouragement, study, and prayer, we will proclaim the different aspects of the Gospel and explain how they must impact our evangelism.
