A survey by Barna-Group reports that 47% of practicing Christian millennials agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith. This shocking statistic is a part of a larger cultural shift away from tolerance. As the world around us grows more intolerant of opinions that are different, and as people are more and more greatly offended each day by opposing views, Christians are finding it hard, and even questioning the importance of telling others about Jesus.
Evangelism is why we all believe. It is what many disciples and men of God died for. It is the reason nations like America and much of the western world has been blessed in pastime. And today, we bury it as “wrong”? This calls for serious intervention: If in our spiritual circles we do not start shifting more focus to this command given by Yeshua, our children may pay the price.
