Should Our Goal Be To Make Conversion Easy?

I kind of stumbled upon this quote by accident (a Google return on something else entirely), but I think it bears attention:

"How many souls have been led to vain confidence by a man-made, evangelistic formula? How many are sent home from evangelistic services with calm, who should have gone away grieved and disturbed as the rich young ruler who approached Jesus? How many unsaved children have been given assurance by the teachers of Bible classes, so that they have ceased to seek God for salvation?" --Walter Chantry

Should Our Goal Be To Make Conversion Easy?

I don't know anything about Walter Chantry or Jim Bublitz, the guy on whose site the quote appears and don't know if I should be quoting him (some things on there make me a little nervous) still I think that the quote is solid.

Thanks for the link. Feel free to email me if you have questions about your other cautions with our site. I generally try to stick with the views and beliefs of the historic Reformed camp including the Puritans, Pilgrims, and much of the Reformation.

PS: Walter Chantry is the editor of Banner of Truth magazine and has authored several books published by Banner of Truth.
