    Paul certainly says that "IF an unbeliever enters" into a service. I am also sure that many were brought into the house gatherings of the early church to hear the gospel. But at the same time, those who were members were being discipled and taught how to do outreach as they went about their daily lives. That seems to be the missing ingredient in many of today's "churches".

    Especially in the American church, there is a whole different mentality about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. There is also a sense of laziness or shyness and folks just want to do what is easiest for them instead of actually obeying the great commission.

    Today it is more like; "Go into all the world and invite people to church service" instead of "Go into all the world and preach the gospel". Today it is more like; "Go make pew sitters of all nations" instead of "Make disciples of all nations".

    Until we get it right there just won't be any great awakening as would be possible with the church actually doing what God has called her to do.

    The second bit is what our leader is trying to teach. That is good.

    Trouble is he's not doing the first bit. It's a bit hard to take the Gospel to others when you've never heard it, just hearing that apparently "we can get to know God better" and sin is just "an unhealthy way of living".
    Is there such a thing as a rhetorical answer?

    Jesus said of Himself "Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations". (Luke 24:46).

    So, does your Church proclaim "repentance for forgiveness of sins", or as I would say, preach the Gospel?

    Yes.

    Our church used to preach repentance, baptism, baptism in the Holy Ghost and FIRE. Maybe some day we will get back to it.

    We are shooting for the last Sunday of the month. There will be a Fire burning in the pulpit again.
