Quote from: ptmccain on July 26, 2010, 03:54:37 PMRev. Austin, you were the one who noted that Evangelism and reaching the world for Christ are not issues dealt with at an LWF Assembly when you wrote:So.... What about evangelism? What about winning the world for Christ? The thing is, an Assembly is not where those sort of things emerge.If you meant to say that "The Assembly is the place where evangelism and winning the world for Christ emerge" then perhaps you need to revise your post.

Austin's remarks explaining why Evangelism is not a subject dealt with at LWF Assemblies, which are not, as he put it, the best place for such issues.Perhaps you would care to offer Rev. Austin some corrections based on your experiences?

What about winning the world for Christ? The thing is, an Assembly is not where those sort of things emerge. Evangelism is local and contextual, so it is more likely to be discussed in the regional meetings - and it was - than in the international Assembly.
