    Andrew,

    Would you please tell me just what the belief was in Universalism at Finney”s time. Is it the same today? Your book about him is wonderful. Thank you for all you do…Jan Dodge from Washington. We met you at Goldendale. with MIke and Anne.
    We were the old couple.
    Thank you……We are on your mailing list. I think Jasmine will remember us.

    I’m in the midst of reading The Sinner’s Prayer and you talk about “asking Jesus into your heart” as the sinner’s prayer. My husband is in the resort business so over the last 30 years we have moved around quite a bit in America and for almost 28 of those years we have been saved. We’ve been in many churches and I have never heard one specific “sinner’s prayer” but I have heard many different “sinners prayers.” Most of them however have incorporated a recognition of being a sinner, asking for forgiveness from sins, a declaration that Christ rose from the dead, and that he is coming back, a promise to follow the Lord, and asking the Holy Spirit to dwell in them (or asking Jesus to come into their hearts). I have never heard from a preacher that you just ask Jesus into your heart and then you’re saved.

    I’ve heard it from others who were evangelizing but never from a preacher when leading a congregation in a prayer. Also, the raising of hands most of the time was followed by a call to come down to the front and pray with an altar counselor. (This is increasingly more rare in a large church of if there is another service on the heels of the first service.) I don’t know what each person said at the altar.

    I know that originally the “sinner’s prayer” was reactionary to Catholicism in this country and the whole idea behind it was that we needed to have a personal relationship with Jesus. It’s wasn’t enough just to follow rituals. In itself, it has since become a ritual and therefore has lost a lot of its original purpose.

    I realize that most mainstream churches don’t have altar calls at all, about anything, even healing prayer. I grew up in the Catholic church, then went to a Congregational church, and have attended in my search for the Lord the Episcopal church, the Methodist church, the Presbyterian church, the Lutheran church, the Baptist church, the Assembly of God, the IPHC, and various non-denominational churches. The only churches I ever heard a true non-ritualistic salvation message even preached were the AOG, the IPHC, the Baptist, one or two Presbyterian, and a couple of non-denom. churches—oh yeah – and the Church of God.

    My main comment though is in regards to church trends. Over the past 7 years, I have noticed that a lot of the churches have gone to a new format of not even telling people there is a way to be saved. I just heard this past Sunday at a church we have been attending that church on Sunday (or Saturday) is a place for the saved to get fed and that it is the congregation’s job to go out and make converts–that salvation takes place outside of the walls of the church. The preacher had the saved people raise their hands (and of course most of the congregation raised their hands). He made this statement – “See, most of you are Christians – some of you aren’t but those who are…etc.” And then went on to explain how the Christians need to shine the light of Christ where they work, etc. He never once said anything to the unbelievers that if they want to know about salvation, what to do. I was stunned. It was like the unbelievers in the church didn’t matter. They were just kind of forgotten.

    In many modern churches (I guess you call them seeker oriented churches), the teaching about fundamentals takes place in small groups so if you don’t go to a small group, chances are you will only get preaching on practical matters – how to be a good person (with scriptural backing most of the time), how to get rid of unforgiveness, etc. You won’t really hear the full Gospel at all, only snippets.

    These churches are growing in leaps and bounds while the others with a more traditional message are losing congregation members and eventually closing their doors. It reminds me a little of the movie “You’ve Got Mail,” where the mega-book store moves in right around the corner from the little children’s book store and wipes it out. Even though the little store is an infinitely better children’s book store, the big box store is much cheaper and has a wide variety of other books as well as lattes. Let’s not forget the lattes.

    That’s the trend of churches today – big box churches with rock concerts for worship and cafes with lattes and cappuccinos. Some churches even have their own special roasts. The church I was telling you about earlier has their own roasts. One is called Dunamis — I’m not lying. I’ve heard very good messages from the preacher there but never once heard an actual full Gospel salvation message – repentance, faith, baptism, laying on of hands, resurrection from the dead, eternal judgment. And yet they have people getting baptized every so often.

    I don’t know — the message is so watered down these days and I think leaders rationalize it by saying they need to reach the culture – be all things to all men perhaps? I know one local church (which has grown A LOTand has many extensions) whose pastor took a survey of everything people hate or like about church and then tried to incorporate those likes and dislikes into the way he would run the church he founded. And one of the things people don’t like is to be reminded that they need to repent. The latest euphemism for repentance (I think) is “getting on track with God,” or a little tougher one is “getting right with God. No one ever really defines what that actually means though.

    I truly don’t know if the Western church can change for the better. It may just be that a remnant come out and have pockets of life. Until then, we do the best we can with what we’ve got and individually tell people the good news – because it is good news.

    I spent 7 years researching, journaling and writing 5 manuscripts all on the topic(s) and subject(s) of visuals. From scripture and God’s creations to the world and corrupt media etc. I was encouraged by a handful of people when I started but they have since got into the hyper grace teaching so don’t want to read about discernment and watching what they watch. Like so many you connect with, we are not in a church which the right place for my husband and I but, again, like so many others, we feel alone. But there are these manuscripts that I was totally inspired from God to put together. I’ve sent proposals out to publishing companies. They say that they like what I’ve written, but they want me to have ‘platform’ or a known name for myself. Ugh! I think about it, but just can’t give up on these, my babies (writings) and they are more and more relevant to todays’ life each day. You all are always an encouragement with each email you send and in reading your website. So, here I am writing to you and asking if you have any suggestions. I respect you more than and one and ask, what should I do?
