And shame on those churches which use them as ‘tools for evangelism’. What biblical text do you distort to insist that you hare supposed to use such methods to engender conversions? And how can such ‘conversions’ be anything but the false turning of a person who has based their decision not on the love of God but on fear? Are you utterly ignorant? ‘Perfect love casts out fear’. Hence, the love of God and the gospel are diametrically opposed to such demonic and scandalous methodologies.
It isn’t the conversion of souls that such events elicit, it’s base and perverse pseudo-theology.
But I’m genuinely interested in the theological justification of such events. Tell me, if you can (and I know for a fact that you can’t, which means that all such efforts should be forsaken and the Gospel in its purity and simplicity proclaimed and either accepted or rejected on its own terms).
