Gospel-Power

Quotes for Topic: Gospel-power

1.
It is a myth to think that because I’m somebody famous or well-known or because I’m slick or clever, or because I package my little presentation in lingo and terminology that’s kind of at the core of contemporary vernacular that somehow this influences people.  You know what gets people saved?  Not that kind of influence.  What gets people saved is a recognition of who Jesus Christ is and an honest evaluation of their condition and the need for the Savior.  What we need is not more people trying to influence society. We need more people preaching the gospel.  It’s confrontation, not influence.
