This Week's White Horse Inn

The Great Commission Survey

Is it more important to "be the gospel" to others or to "preach the gospel"? To our surprise, 69 percent of the Christians we polled sided with the idea of "being the gospel." On this broadcast, the hosts continue to interact with the results from our recent survey of Christians at a conservative evangelical convention; this time dealing with issues relating to the theme of the Great Commission.

If the question was asked the way it is in the post, I wouldn't be surprised if some among those who think that it is more important to preach the gospel think that they can be the gospel.

Why would you be surprised that 69% chose "being" instead of "preaching". I expected about 85% to choose the wrong answer.

Listening now again. This is one I'll probably listen to a few times, to absorb it. And play for the wife if she'll listen.

Mike Horton's description at about the 8 minute mark (podcast version) of evangelical "traditional" worship is absolutely spot on. A few years back we moved from the "contemporary" service in the "mutt evangelical" church we've been in for a while to the "traditional" one, for scheduling reasons. The differences were 1)old people, mostly 2)Gaither songs and early 20th cent. camp meeting songs instead of too loud CCM top 40 w/ a "praise band". That's <i>it</i>.

Framing the question as contemporary vs. traditional based on taste in music misses the point entirely.
