Francis Grimke – A Spurious Evangelism

9 Aug

francis-j-grimke1-604x528There is an evangelism that is genuine… that means accepting Jesus Christ in reality and not in pretense–an evangelism that carries along with it brotherhood, that so presents Jesus Christ that men see, and see plainly, what is involved in accepting him. The Apostle Paul who understood what was in solved in it, and who preached the true evangel, says: ‘Seeing that ye have put off the old man with his doings, and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of Him that created him: where there can not be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bondman, freeman; but Christ is all, and in all.’ An evangelism that permits men to believe that they can be Christians without making an earnest and honest effort to rid themselves of race prejudice is a spurious evangelism.

    Indeed, and yet there is simply No perfection in any regenerate Christian, not in this life, our Perfection is the Risen & Ascended Christ, i.e. “Christ Jesus” as Paul loves to say! And we are seeing things today that the Church has never seen… It is the Day of Gentile Apostasy! (2 Thess. 2: 3, surely The Antichrist is next up! Watch National Israel, Zech. chap’s 12-13-14, note 13: 19-20) Yes, I am Historical Pre-Mill, Post-trib. (2 Thess. 2: 1) and even something of the PD, Progressive Dispensational (how can humanity survive the 21st Century?) Btw, its time for the Reformed to wake-up to the Eschatological End! Indeed the Book of Revelation is “futuristic”, Rev. 1: 1-3 ; 7; 19 ; 22: 7 ; 12 ; 16, etc.
