The call of Jesus is powerful
The example of Jesus is powerful.
His ministry started with a cutting call to repentance because the kingdom was at hand, yet his ministry went on *teaching* and preaching with all doctrine to which people were drawn to, eventually bringing them to faith in the living Son of God. Hence chapter after chapter of his teaching left to us in the pages of the four gospels.

We have our modern version of evangelism, but the blue print is " *teaching them all things* whatsoever I have commanded you"
It is the confrontation with truth that enlightens the mind and the spirit of man, as the truth of Christ his Spirit bears in the heart, not the three or four points of a minimised gospel.

" ... the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

"Go ye therefore, and *teach* all nations"

While we engage in preaching a demi-gospel we are deceiving ourselves.

Yes, the fullness of God, as you point out, is needed in every life that is going to be of any effect. However, the content is as important

The church by large engage in giving a minimised version of the gospel stripped out of all doctrine. Hence, e.g. the tone of many enterprises such as Child Evangelism Fellowship that in spite of all good will and intent, induce in ignorance false conversions a galore.

Differently, Victorian Christian workers engaged the mind of the hearer in doctrinal presentation that demanded an intellectual and holistic commitment to truth, not a mere assent to an ethereal, semi mystical 'experience' of salvation as it is today.

Hence why RCs are not tackled at the key strokes. We have been seduced and reprogrammed to avoid such, falsely believing that truth has no power by itself, and we are content in presenting assent to the nice idea of being 'saved', of what they hardly know what from or what for.
Hence assent follows seeing no need for true conversion as we speak of different matters using the same terms because doctrine is missing

Old books on missions ...
John, there are local biographies from not very well known people dating from the late 1800's and early 1900's where one can glean information detailing the work of Independent British Baptists and lay Anglican missions bringing the gospel to Catholics in Ireland.
Such missions funded itinerant lay preachers that went house to house selling bibles, talking, preaching in the open air and teaching the bible in rural catholic areas and homes, starting schools to educate the catholic children before the national school system took over education in Britain.
Many were mobbed by the priests using the local authorities to chase them away and stop a totally legal practice.

Some tricks were remarkable.
E.g., in one occasion RC priests forward themselves to serve as teachers in those independent day schools started by the Anglican missionaries.
Naively in good faith they were accepted with the condition that the scriptures should be daily read each morning before starting the classes. This they promised to do, only to manage ceremonially to read the scriptures to an empty classroom each morning while keeping the children out of the building as the scriptures were read
Such was the hatred for scripture

Oluwole said:
“I am in the United Kingdom to bring back the true message of the gospel that Christians many years ago brought to Nigeria. I have seen first-hand what sadly many Christians have suffered in Nigeria.
It is ironic that I was accused of exactly what the Muslims are doing in my country... When will the UK wake up and realise that submission to Islam ...
I was interviewed, charged and put on trial for being a hate preacher... But the most loving thing that a preacher can do is tell people the truth not just about the gospel but also about false religions,... ”
... It takes a [Pentecostal] "Redeemed Christian Church of God" pastor from Nigeria to show how it's done, and when it's all over - back to sleep in Zion UK.
This trend started well into the end of the 1800's when Anglican lay preachers evangelised Irish catholics by showing them the inconsistencies of their religion against the bible teachings, getting many converts to the faith. This they did by giving children to memorize particular Scripture texts contradicting roman doctrines.
As now, the preachers were silent by threats and imprisonment, training indirectly with this the next generation never to dare to do the same to this day
Nothing new.

1. Sadly, the church's idea of preaching the gospel to every creature is to have a gospel preaching "service" once a week, at which they expect all the unregenerate to make an appearance and "hear the gospel". And so the Great Commission is fulfilled, and everyone is happy. God saves his elect, the church is being obedient and blessed, all is well with the world.

2. Now a tract, sister, is a preacher of the gospel of the grace of God. When people read it...

1. Surely the syndromes you describe here, typical of our age, apply, yet the causes and factors inducing or repressing evangelism may vary differently in every age, period or setting.

2. Literacy is a problem in our "illiterate" society

3. The demi-God called media preaches a total antagonistic gospel to the biblical gospel. Its main tenor being, man is good and truth is not only optional but relative. And while socialism cares for the individual from the cradle to the grave there is no need for a god.

4. The gospel is not preached today on the grounds of accountability against God's law, but as an utilitarian facility for peace of mind, feel good factor, or as a 'life insurance' type.

1. A parachurch organisation, Christian Concern, has gotten 45,000 signatures "demanding that the Home Office protect the rights of street preachers".
Well, for one thing, "Christian Concern" has no biblical warrant to exist.
For another thing, there is barely a church left in England or Wales who has the slightest interest in freely proclaiming the gospel in town centres any more, and the men who do so are either isolated independents, or they belong to parachurch organisations...

2.Now if these 45,000 people had gotten a hundred tracts each, and spent an hour of their life giving them out today, then four and a half million other people would have heard the gospel, and there could have been some folks saved, because it is God's will for the gospel to go out to the people.

1. John, still it is a mercy that the public can present a concern through lawful means in Britain.

2. On the other hand, marketing does not biblically mix well with evangelism, as that is a work of God's sovereign grace.
We can give as many tracts as you want without accomplishing grace.
Rather it is by God following with his enabling the foolishness of the preaching souls are gathered. Not saying that he will not use otherwise also.

It would be necessary to have all the facts to hand before watching such a thing, merely to check it out for accuracy. But most people are watching it to get the facts. Who but Christians, for example, know what the Gunpowder Plot was all about? I've never met anyone yet who knew about that, and why we have a bonfire with a Guy on top. Protestants could be right nasty as well as Catholics, both unregenerate.
John, no one can get to the bottom of all the facts about a particular, except God who was there all the time.

To investigate truth we simply compare primary and correlating topics, sources and issues, which method normally serves to detect flaws and slants.

See, one can deceive some for some time, but not all, all the time.

Here on these threads, it is a plain fact that not all are Christians. So what you call a "war" between Christians may in fact be a "spiritual war" between Christians and devils.
True.
Some of the most doctrinally affected clearly display symptoms of R.P.S.('religious personality disorder'), while all along presenting themselves as true believers, which kind can be quickly differentiated from the agitating trolls.

All the same however, the godly, in whatever rough stage they might be, can be promptly identified also.

If that be the case, Sister B, then there is no hope for me to gain a true knowledge of history. I do not have the books, and if I did, I have not the wherewithal to read them.
I have seen some good documentaries on TV, well I say good, but maybe there was an agenda which has transformed my thinking. One of those documentaries, a three part series,... the monarch Elisabeth I and her spy network. I think in the last episode it went forward into James I and the plots against his life, including the Gunpowder Plot by Catholics, which was most fascinating. It was a close shave. Other documentaries were on the UK when it was a system of kingdoms and there was no England, Wales, or Scotland at that time. I would love to read about all this, but I am too limited.
In that case a second hand Victorian text book on history for children found in second hand bookshops might be a good start.
On some of those topics you mention usually there is a dishonest slant under hand.

It is not necessarily what is portrait but what is not really said, or the conclusions forwarded to incite the viewer to take a side instead of allowing the viewer make his own mind after presenting all the facts, that makes the difference.

Actually Sister B, it was a genuine question, not a rhetorical one. My history knowledge is very limited, so that is why I ask questions to try to improve the situation.
I have tried to get a better understanding of the UK and how it came about, through watching documentaries on TV, and it is fascinating to see how it developed from the Roman occupation onwards.
John, the reading of old history books and primary sources, especially from the Victorian age or any sources preceding that time, is a must for true knowledge of history.
TV documentaries often carry hidden agendas and twisted takes about matters.

1. Chris GP, thanks for that

2. "How come there is a small part of Ireland, named Northern Ireland, which is run by the English?"

3. You can extend that to, "How come Wales, originally an independent territory, is now run by the English?"
You can then go on to, "How come the Scots, originally an independent territory, is now run by the English?"
Do you believe the English are quite innocent of any wrongdoing in the history of the British Isles?

1. Yes, thank you Chris for that informative summary.

2. Sorry John, you are holding the stick by the wrong end by saying this, exposing your poor knowledge of history.

3. What happened to the Welsh, to the Scots or to the Irish re. the English cannot be generalised or squared out under one single conclusion as you do.

4. Most of Great Britain's happenings between the 13 and 19th century should be understood as the conflict between faith and religion.

5. The Irish sustained such different indigenous ethics and laws from the English in history that made their politics, diplomacy, economy, and society totally irreconcilable in basic interests.

Mike, present nationalisms exist out of blind secularism void of principle, identity, focus, understanding or logic.

“ A testimony to the grace of God ”
Thank you Dr.Cairns for that Christ exalting word so fittingly followed by the singing of Mr Gingery "Christian anthem" of praise. A real taste of heavenly things.

What is necessary for the salvation of one man is necessary for the salvation of another and of all. It is also of infinite value, being the righteousness of
the eternal Son of God, and therefore sufficient for all." —
(Hodge’s "Essays," pp.181,182

Thanks, Adriel

"... by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us,
... Christ,... through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God"

"Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life."

Please, reconsider the line of thought presented and the issue at hand by rereading information discussed.
You are creating straw men of your own without digesting the facts explained.

No personal dialogue will be engaged in for the reasons already stated a while.

Again it would appreciated if your curtailed your negative, malicious remarks about those deferring from you.

Thanks to Sister B for adding your thoughts concerning Hodge's comment, most appreciated. The exaltation of the Lord Jesus Christ is so important in all of this, and he is always exalted in the salvation of sinners. The crucifixion of our Saviour would have been no different were it for the benefit of one, one hundred, one thousand, one million, or all the souls in the world.
Thanks John,
The fact that we all die in Adam, and this because of *one* single transgression as explained in Romans 5, points to eternal guilt perpetrated demanding redemption on behalf of mankind to be pursued. Of course this does not mean *universal* redemption as some assume it is, as it balances against the commands to the whosoever to repent and the grace granted to do so.

It is true that many verses mention our many sins finding atonement by the *sin* offering of Christ, yet it is announced somewhere else that the Lamb of God takes away the *sin*, (singular), not *sins*, (plural), of the world, this pointing to the same issue, the guilt accrued in Adam.

Such a puny god would be that surrogates pardon on the amount of his limited suffering.
The sin problem required frankly more than that, never mind his generous nature.

"All that Christ did and suffered would have been necessary had only one human soul been the object of redemption "
Charles Hodge

This makes sense, as eternal guilt is not 'counted' or measured by the numbers of sins accumulated or by the numbers of sinners involved, but by its meaning.

Death comes as the result of one single sin.

We read that one is made guilty of all the law for one single transgression.

The same figures in the case of the fall: for the sin of one all died in him, because the wages (guilt) for a single sin is complete death, nor partial death, and that not for the amount of personal sins committed, neither for the number of sinners put together.

The penalty of death for any single sin needed to be redeemed, expiated, by a full and eternal sacrifice of death unto life.

No human or beast sacrifice could attain that eternal value, but the infinite value of the sacrifice of the person of the Son.

Those quantifying numbers of transgressions or transgressors to measure the scope of the atonement miss this vital point of doctrine.

J. C. Kyle's view that 'Christ's death is sufficient for the sins of the whole world' has this biblical antecedent,

"God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved"

The world in John 3:17 in the context of the passage (see verses below) is a generic term not literal, this is why it does not support universal salvation neither exclusive salvation. Only faulty resoning of men gets in the conclusions of an impotent sacrifice.

"The wind bloweth where it listeth, ...
as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life"

The argument is again reasoning 'god' into the level of our poor understanding by Hyper Calvinism.
