Pointing People to God

Recently, I found myself involved in a discussion. The topic? We were asking ourselves how we could reach a particular group of people for Christ. Great suggestions were brought forward but the response coming back was discouraging: That’s against the rules of the (named) organization*. The reason for it? We do not want to interfere with their theology (if there are Christians within the group) nor do we want to run the risk that non-believers keep the Christians from staying in that group. 🙄

I wonder how many people could be reached if we would put ourselves more under the headship of Christ and worry less about people getting upset.

Yes, I understand that we as Christians need to place ourselves under the authorities which God has established. We cannot run in different directions, there needs to be a unity within the Body of Christ. However, isn’t evangelism pointing people to God? Shouldn’t that be our goal? I don’t think other Christians would get offended when we tell them about Jesus. Should they? Now, concerning non-believers, don’t they need to hear the Gospel at least once in their lifetime? And, if we are not telling them, who will?

*In case you asked: Yes, a Christian organization!
