Mission Field: Your local church

I picked up a copy of John MacArthur’s “Hard to Believe” not too long ago. I have not read the book all the way through but I have been skimming through it. Came across many interesting, perhaps eye-opening statements, but then again Johnny Mac is known for these. That’s what he gets for preaching it like it is instead of preaching what people want to hear.

Well here is what he said:

“Our main mission field in America today is within the church”

For some context, the chapter is about reaching out to the lost within our churches, more specifically those who think they’re not lost (see Matthew 7:21-23).

    That’s a good quote, and sadly, very true.

    Wow. I read the excerpt on Amazon. He doesn’t comprimise! I might add this to my wishlist. Thanks for the tip.
