Mark 1:22, 27-28, 45--
22 "And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes.
27 And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” 28 And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.
45 " . . . people were coming to him from every quarter."
What many are tending to do today is this. They say, 'Take up Christianity. It will pay you. I am a witness to it.' So a short address is given, and people are then called upon to testify. Why are people expected to want to accept Christianity? Because it works. It does this or that. It promises you happiness. It gives you peace and joy. I suggest that this a false evangelism. Our one business is to preach the Lord Jesus Christ, the final Authority. We are told to declare Him, and that men and women are to come face to face with Him. The cults can give you 'results'. Christian Science can tell you that if you do this and that you will sleep well at night, and you will lose your aches and pains. All the cults can do that sort of thing. We are not to do that [emphasis mine]. We are to declare Him, and to bring people face to face with Him. That was His own method.
