The age is gone when evangelism was out there and education was in here.

Part of the rational, professional, and institutional nature of the modern church of the past century was the compartmentalization of ministries.

Education and Evangelism

The 20 Century New Testament scholar C. H. Dodds, made an impact in 1936 with a widely adopted attempt to show that the early church made a definite distinction between preaching and teaching, that the act of proclamation was a distinct act within the early church and that teaching followed preaching. The general acceptance of his writing helped to reinforce a distinction between education and evangelism.

Education and Evangelism

“Good evangelism is the process of being friendly without discrimination and influencing all of one’s friends toward better living, through good deeds and good conversations. Engaging in spiritual friendship will not only help others become Christians, it will help us become better Christians, who love God more than ever.”

make disciples and teach them.
