And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” – Mark 16:15

 

Whatever happened to the concept of “Go”?  One of the reasons we left the IC was because its main focus was on bringing people in, rather than on going out to where the people are.  Even the traditional Christmas and Easter “outreaches” are more of the same: inviting people INTO a building so they can join the church club.

Note that the word “Go” is a verb.  An action word.  It does not imply sitting back and spectating while one or two or a handful of “professionals” do the “go-ing” – if there’s any at all.

Is that what biblical Christianity is about?  What would Jesus say?
