Sermon of the week: “How to Witness to the Lost, the Biblical Way” by Paul Washer.

This new message from Paul Washer is–in my opinion–one of his top five sermons (if not in the top three). What he preached to the church youth in his famous “Shocking Sermon” (audio here, video here) regarding false conversion, he now delivers to the preachers, teachers, and pastors who are creating all those false converts. If you only listen to one sermon this week, or month, make it How to Witness to the Lost, the Biblical Way, then pass this on to someone who is making false converts; it is a message that must be heard.

John MacArthur An apostate is therefore a defector from the truth—someone who has known the truth, given some show of affirmation to it, perhaps even proclaimed it for a while—but then rejected it in the end. The typical apostate may still purport to believe the truth and proclaim the truth; but in reality he opposes the truth and undermines it. He is a traitor to the faith and secretly an enemy in the Truth War. But he wants everyone to think otherwise. Most apostates seek to remain within the church and actively seek acceptance among the people of God. Because everything they do undermines faith and corrupts the truth, such people pose a grave danger to the health of the flock—even though they usually bend over backward to appear friendly, likable, and pious. That is why Jesus compares them to ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing (Matthew 7:15).
