What has the preeminence in fundamentalist circles? What do they glorify above all else? Christ? Christ’s church? The fellowship of the saints?
In fact, if you listen, you’ll find that the predominant thing glorified in all of fundamentalism is the act of confrontational evangelism and the people who do that “ministry.”
Soulwinning is what calls people to the ministry.
Soulwinning is what defines your usefulness to the ministry.
Soulwinning is even the cure for depression!
And yet, the way these people do this never shows up in the Bible or anywhere in church history outside of the last century or two. How very strange.
