Theology Geek's not so random thoughts...

Sorry for the nearly incoherant random thoughts…

Any evangelistic effort that does not include catechesis and baptism is not evangelism. It is an open door to heresy and shallow Christianity!

I also firmly oppose the popular idea of “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” Yeah, I know what St Francis was talking about, but the True Gospel can only expressed with words.

Law—> Gospel—> Catechesis—> Baptism. Is there really any other way?

Law without Gospel—> Legalism and eventual burn-out
Gospel without Law—> Shallow Christians
Evangelism without Catechesis—> Immature Christians
Evangelism without Baptism—> Christians without Assurance

You have spoken the truth, Jason! Excellent words to reflect upon.
