Proper Motivation

When people say, “Calvinism destroys any motivation to evangelize”, they often fail to realize they silently say, “If the salvation of souls depended upon the free choice of man then I would be motivated to share the gospel, but if it depends solely on the free choice of God I am not motivated.”  Thus man’s goodness and freedom become the basis of evangelism instead of God’s goodness and freedom.

One thought on “Proper Motivation”

  1. Such a great point. A week ago I was teaching on the doctrine of election and told the church if I didn’t believe in election I would quit the ministry. I am not attractive enough, persuasive enough, smart enough, effective enough, or popular enough to lead anyone to salvation.
