Forty Converts, One Saved

source: Symphony of Scripture

“In one heartbreaking incident of modern evangelism, forty converts were contacted as a follow up to their evangelism experience, and only only one person of these forty was found who appeared to be a Christian. So although one lady may have been reached, we must ask ourselves, what were the effects of the encounter on the thirty nine? And this is a questions we must ask ourselves, because some of these people may have left believing their eternal destinies were determined by their decisions, which is a fatal confidence if no change was wrought in their hearts and lives. The others may have concluded that they have experienced all that Christianity has to offer. Failing to feel or see any promised change in themselves, they have become convinced that Christianity is a fake and that those who hold it are either self-diluted fanatics or miserable hypocrites.”
