Ways Of Preaching The Gospel by TemmyT002(m): 7:44am On Jul 21
1. FACE TO FACE EVANGELISM:

The list is not written according to a particular order but this one is the most important. This type of evangelism is very common to the Jehovah Witnesses and a few churches
Face to face evangelism is very useful because it allows the preacher to see the person he or she is reaching out to, see their actions, see if they are responding well, seek their opinions and read their emotions.


2. PREACHING IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTS:

This form of evangelism is somehow rude. Why? Because most preachers don’t ask the permission of other passengers to preach before doing so; they just go on preaching as if they own the transport. But if permission is given, it is also useful as the passengers may even seek the preacher for further meetings.

3. STREET PREACHING:

This can be done in the morning, afternoon or evening. Many people are involved in this. It is not very advisable unless the street is lined with shops and full of people. There are many cases of people preaching on expressways where one or even no one is passing by. You then wonder who they are preaching to. Is it to the mosquitoes flying by or ants? But when there are people around, it is very useful.


4. TV EVANGELISM:

This involves preaching the gospel on TV stations. It has been misused though as many churches use the opportunity to show their population and how handsome or beautiful or well-dressed the pastors are. Most times, what the pastors preach about is prosperity and success, instead of repentance and salvation. Also, since the Nigerian electricity is wacky, very few people switch channels to the preaching unless they are church members. People rather prefer to listen to hip hop music videos.

5. RADIO EVANGELISM:

This is just like the TV evangelism minus the showing of images. The problem with this is the language barrier as many may not understand the language used unless an interpreter is involved. Anyway, people would rather prefer hip hop music playing radio stations.


6. PAPER EVANGELISM:

This could be in form of magazines or tracts. Most times, people just ignore them as they prefer to read Complete Sports or others. Language barrier is also a problem here.


7. SOCIAL MEDIA EVANGELISM:

This is supposed to do a lot as many people are involved with it; unfortunately, many Christians don’t use it to advantage. People who preach on Social Media usually have less friends and most times, they are afraid of losing Facebook friends.
It is supposed to be an opportunity for fellowship and church workers to preach the gospel, but instead of doing so, they prefer to post their own pictures.


8. CHARACTER EVANGELISM:

Action, they say, speak louder than words. The characters of people speak volumes. People can use their characters to preach the gospel. Through love, kindness and tolerance, the characteristics of Jesus himself, sinners can come to Christ.


Preaching can be in form of stories, music, speeches, tete-a-tete, dramas and so on.
Summarily, if you call yourself a Christian and you don’t partake in any of these types of evangelism, you need to change your orientation.

A true believer should be ready to face persecution while preaching the word of God. If you start preaching the word if God and non-believers start throwing stones at you, you should continue to preach and praise the Lord's name even if you are stonned to death.

God is great.

Evangelism; our core value as a believer of Christ.
It should be done with all amount of sincerity at all times.

We can't do it on our own but through the empowerment of the holy spirit.

Bus evangelism should be a capital punishment. Some of us like our ‘me’ time whilst commuting to work on a Monday morning especially. Shouting in the bus as though what we heard on Sunday isn’t enough.

Must everyone enter the kingdom of God? It’s a matter of individual choice. Shouting and adding to the already noisy Danfo can make a sane man go berserk.

No 2 is business strategy of begging for money

You can hardly see a preacher or prayer warrior that concludes without begging for money.

Proverbs 19,5 >>A false witness,false pastor&prophets will never go unpunished &he who tells lies will not escape.we reveal things unknown after the creation of the world and we are not out to impress or cajole humanbeigns at all ,we are only here to inform and wait for time of perfection of the times and season of Jesus Christ #.time is the best friend of truth, afterall Jesus Christ lived for thirty three good years unknown to those who claimed to know God more than Jesus then and yet he was the son of God and even after he began the works he came to do at thirty years ,how many chief priests and prophets and pastors followed Jesus Christ and synagogues never closed down ?Now we are asking,who is sure that the prophets and pastors and all sorts are following Jesus Christ truly uptil this days?If you are wise why not ask deep spiritual questions if you hear new truth that you have never heard before, that is how a wise person does. Time must surely tell who is who evil or good after all over 2000 years ago those who met Jesus Christ personally cursed him and called him all sorts of names but today his truth stands sure.that's the confidence of our unbelievable truth. Mathew 13,13-15

... One thing i know is this... If truly there's no such thing as big sin and small sin as most pastors preach.,then no one will make it to heaven... Before you mention me. Stop and think about it...

Almost everything you stated up there is pollution/public nuisance in one way or the other.

No better way to preach the gospel than to live the gospel.

Let your light shine that men will see and know that of a truth you are serving a living/merciful God.

Your way of life will endear many to want to know the how's and whys.

8. CHARACTER EVANGELISM:
Action, they say, speak louder than words. The characters of people speak volumes. People can use their characters to preach the gospel. Through love, kindness and tolerance, the characteristics of Jesus himself, sinners can come to Christ.

In my opinion,this is the best form of preaching!
Its imperative that people esp unbelievers see the lifestyle and attitude of Christ in the life of those who are believers!

Matthew 5:16 King James Version (KJV)
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

a true believer do not convert others to his own religion

stop wasting your time with your religious advertisement...life is too short to be converting others into some religious, the biggest conversion is converting yourself out of poverty.

True
But if they are talking about sharing money or job opportunities, no one will remember the 'me' time.
