CHAN’S OLD WAY – AND OUR NEW WAY!

by Dr. R. L. Hymers, Jr.

A message given at the Baptist Tabernacle of Los Angeles
Thursday Evening, November 7, 2019


I want you to start doing evangelism in a new way.


1   Before – Chan and his people sent people out 2 by 2 to invite people to a party.
Now –    We will send you out alone.


2   Before – Chan and his people talk a little about the party, then they ask for their
               phone number and name.
Now –    We talk to them about Jesus and how to know we have eternal life. We
               will not mention the party until they know what the Bible says about
               receiving eternal life.


3   Before – Chan and his people thought you had to get lots of names and phone
               numbers, hoping some would come to the party.
Now –    We know that doesn’t work any more. Times have changed, the “Jesus
               Movement” is over. We have to use another method.


4   Before – People were more interested in Christianity.
Now –    People are less interested in Christianity.


5   Before – Many more people were willing to be picked up for church by someone
              they didn’t know.
Now
–   They are scared of being picked up for church by someone they don’t
              know.


6   Before – Chan and his people emphasized the party.
Now –    We emphasize Jesus at the very beginning.


7   Before – Chan and his people took several people to get a visitor.
Now –    It takes only one person for us to get a visitor.


8   Before – Dr. Chan and his people had to emphasize the party and fellowship.
Now –    We emphasize the good news of Jesus!


9   BeforeWorks (coming to a party) was the emphasis.
Now –    Grace: the free gift of eternal life is emphasized.


10   Before – Dr. Chan’s people had to turn the grace of God into lasciviousness
              (“into a license for immorality” – NIV) to attract people (see Jude 4;
                p. 1328 Scofield).
Now
–    We use Jesus and the Gospel to attract people.


Dr. Chan and his people call their meeting “All of Grace Baptist Church.” But their real attraction is lewdness. That is why they have only attracted a few lewd people who left our church because we did not allow lewdness. They said we were “too strict.” What they really meant was that we did not allow sexual sin!!! Antinomian lawlessness about sex is their only real draw. The only people they have added were a few people who left us because we were “too strict” about sex!!!

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4; p. 1309).

Now – We preach,

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:8-10; p. 1251).

11   They – preach lewdness!
We – preach the Gospel!


“They think it strange that ye run not with them to the same
  excess of riot, speaking evil of you” (I Peter 4:4; p. 1315).

12   They – preach perverted “fellowship.”
We –    preach Christ, forgiveness, and eternal life through Jesus, our Lord.


13   They – come to church to “check out the girls” – like wimps!
We –    come to church to learn about being strong Christians!


14   They – have mothers that want to protect their children from becoming strong.
We –    have mothers who want their children to be strong!


Their “church” can therefore never rise above Revelation 3:16.

15   They – act like lost “church kids” – hiding themselves from the pastor – Dr.
            Cagan and deacons (hidden).
We –    are open and honest with the pastor and deacons (open).
