METHODS OF EVANGELISM
Intellectual Method-The Four Spiritual Laws
Introduction
There are many methods to share the good news Of Jesus Christ-Yeshua Messiah and I believe we must use more than a few to reach strangers and friends or family. As the Word says, “and he that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30 KJV). As an intellectual method I prefer the ‘The Four Spiritual Laws’ method from author Bill Bright and Campus Crusade Ministries. Although I find this method almost exact to the ‘The Roman Road’ method. There are ...view middle of the document...

He died, He arose from the dead, and He is the only way to God. "God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8 KJV). Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through me” (John 14:6 KJV).
Law four is that we must believe this and freely receive this gift of life in Jesus Christ-Yeshua Messiah. We receive this gift through faith and when we do we experience a brand new spiritual birth. John 1:12 says, “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, to them that believe on His name” (KJV). “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: nor of works lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV). I think if you have the actual tracts the pictures are also a help aid to the listener you are reaching out to with the good news that they might understand the spiritual rules our Lord has set!
I see one disadvantage to this method of evangelism whether you use the tract or just know the method and the scriptures by heart and that is to offer water baptism to the person or persons you are evangelizing. Another disadvantage to staying strictly to ‘The Four Spiritual Laws’ does not mention icebreakers or finding common ground with the one you are going to share with which I feel is very important. I like what James Huston says, “Before you ever say the word 'Bible,' you have to build up some trust with that person. You have to become his ally. You have to find the feeling the Frenchman calls 'rapport” (Houston, James D. "Daily Evangelism." Manoa 23, no. 2 (2011): 127,140,160). Our approach to folks is of utmost importance.
I do see an advantage in this method if you do have the tract itself, simply because a picture tells a thousand words. The pictures enhance the meanings by showing the images of the ‘Four Steps’ so the hearer can see. Another advantage is it is simple and a rather quick method if the time you have is limited.
Rational Method-Lifestyle Evangelism
I like the idea of first being able to love someone through various ways and conditions. This kind of lifestyle shows the unbeliever that you are loving and caring about them and in my opinion and it opens that door a little bit wider to their heart. When they see your good works it will help them to give glory to God.
When we live out our life as Messiah being Lord, the world around us can see there is something very special about us. In my life I have had many bosses and fellow employees, even after years of not saying a word, finally say things like; you really do love God…or Jesus has made a difference in your life and I see it…or I know just from working with you that you love Jesus, could you tell me about Him please? When these people say these things it is a wonderful feeling to know that Father has let us in to share His glory!
I really love how the author of our book put it;...
