CHURCH / GREENBUSH COMMUNITY BAPTIST / INDEPENDENT BAPTIST CHURCHES

WHAT YOU WIN THEM WITH, YOU WIN THEM TO

WHAT YOU WIN THEM WITH,
YOU WIN THEM TO

Every time I have heard that phrase, it was referring to the King James Bible.
However, In this blog it referrers to Church.

We go soul winning and by that I mean we try to lead people to salvation right then, right where they are. Then after they pray, we should follow-up and get them in Church, walking an aisle and soon baptized.
Only that seldom happens.
The result of leading and leaving Christian converts (?) on their own is a pagan nation that believes the Bible is just another book about some old myths.

There are different opinions on Lordship salvation. But let me say very adamantly that if someone claims they are saved and yet Jesus is not their LORD and Saviour then they are deluded and will spend eternity in torments, and if you are part of that delusion then when you are before the bema seat of Christ, I believe that Jehovah Jesus instead of saying, well done my faithful servant,
WILL SAY  “SHAME ON YOU!”

I am not saying to abandon that type of soul winning, [what do you think I am a heretic or sumpton!]
I am just saying
IT ISN’T AN EITHER OR THING.
It is not wrong to first get the lost into Church where they will hear the gospel preached and later when the Holy Ghost gets them under heavy conviction and they walk the Church aisle to receive the Lord as Saviour, the next step will be natural for them – baptism and Church membership.
You can get them saved through Church.

WHAT YOU WIN THEM WITH,
YOU WIN THEM TO

WIN THEM TO CHURCH AND THEY WILL BE FAITHFUL TO CHURCH
The gospel should be preached most Sunday mornings in EVERY Christ loving, sin hating, gospel-preaching Church. I am a member of an independent Baptist Church where The pastor’s greatest desire is to get people saved through preaching the gospel.

If your Church doesn’t put the emphasis where Christ puts the emphasis – on the gospel
[1st Corinthians 15:1-4],
then you should talk to your pastor about that. And if you do not like his answer then you should find a Church who’s pastor has a burden for lost souls.

WHAT YOU WIN THEM WITH,
YOU WIN THEM TO

WIN THEM TO CHURCH AND THEY WILL SUPPORT THE CHURCH

IF YOU CAN GET THE LOST TO COME TO CHURCH.
They will be under the gospel.
They will learn the Bible.
They will be prayed for.
AND if they get saved they will grow in the nurture of the LORD.
They will be Baptized
they will aspire to be real soldiers of the cross.

Me, I believe in the Church.
I believe the Church is God’s way of building His army.
I do not believe anyone can be right with God unless he is right with his local, independent, King James believing, gospel preaching Church, that preaches and teaches the whole counsel of God.

I believe that the Church is a gift of God to this ugly sin cursed world.

Just below is a letter I wrote
It is not a gospel tract. It is a letter to get the ungodly to come to Church.
Dear Friend,
I hope you will take two minutes to read this letter.
It took me much longer to write it, print it and get it to you.
I have done all that because I want you to get what God wants you to have, a never-ending life of joy.
Isn’t that what we all want?

Most of us are doing okay. Life is a party, then BAM – it’s like someone hit you with an ugly stick.
Sometimes it’s an ugly stick of bad health
Sometimes it’s an ugly stick of family trouble
Sometimes it’s an ugly stick of Job related trouble

Or maybe you have always been a down and outer.
Like the song by Kris Kristofferson (1971)
And his future feels as empty as the pocket in his pants
Because he’s never seen a single dream come true
Or, you may be feeling as though you are on the backseat of a super fast motorcycle with the devil in control doing 90 MPH down a dead end street
(Hank Snow 1963).

People react to all the above in different ways.
But most people, they just keep on doing what drove them into their pit of depression and trouble in the first place. They just stay on the back of that motorcycle and hope for better things.

And sometimes they do get past the hopelessness that life without GOD brings. But, it is always a temporary fix.

It is kind of like winter when you get a nice warm sun shine day, you know it wont last because fridged weather is soon to come.
Such is life without Christ Jesus

If any of that is you then get off the road that leads to death:
Death of happiness
Death of family life
Death of hope
and get on the road that leads to abundant life.

MEANING: WHY NOT TRY CHURCH?

I ask you, WHY DO YOU NOT TRY CHURCH?
I am not saying to change or STOP doing anything.
I am saying the opposite GO to church.

Why not make your mind up that you will just try GOD’S way.
HERE IS MY LOGIC
God sent His beloved SON, Christ Jesus, to die a most horrible death. (Psalm 22, Isaiah 53)
WHY DID JESUS CHRIST DIE?
HE DIED FOR US
HE DIED FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW
decide that you will go to Church for the next three months.
Again I am not asking you to stop anything I am asking only that you do this one thing – commit to go to Church for the next three months.

WHAT CHURCH?
GREENBUSH COMMUNITY BAPTIST CHURCH

WHY Greenbush Community Baptist?
Because Pastor A.C.Caincross preaches and teaches the BIBLE.
And he is your friend.

You will feel loved there.”
You will feel wanted
and when you do not show up you will be missed.

I know it is the best church because I am a member.

But don’t take my word for that check it out yourself.

If this letter has had the slightest impact on you
Please do not put it off.
Please do not scoff it to shame
I know too many people
and so do you
who fall into such deep depression that they can hardly survive – and too many don’t.
When that happens I am always grieved and I ask myself
WHY OH WHY?
Did they not give God a chance to transform them into a Christian (John 3:3 and verse 36)

One thought on “WHAT YOU WIN THEM WITH, YOU WIN THEM TO

  1. Thank you for the blog “What you win them with, you win them to” – I think that’s a great challenge – Asking people to come to church and not change anything else, just come to church for the next 3 months. It could transform their life – May God bless you and may you see many souls come to Christ.
