Years ago, I would be quick to point out to someone that they're going to hell to suffer fire and brimstone if they didn't get saved. I often went into a big dissertation about how we are living in the last days and we needed to get saved before we miss the rapture. And how if one wasn't saved and one did miss the rapture that you could have another chance but things on this earth were going to be really, really bad and if you were smart, you would get saved so you would avoid all of that. I'm sure all of that came from my Pentecostal upbringing. We were big on scare tactics.
At this point in my life, I much prefer love tactics. Someone once said that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Sharing the love of God in practical ways. Loving people into the Kingdom. That's the secret to evangelism. Preaching hellfire and brimstone may work for some, but I think for most it just turns them away from God rather than pointing them to the Savior.
Love. Just reach out and love. Be an example. I often share the love of God and sometimes I do it with words....
but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit
and in much assurance,
as you know what kind of men we were
among you for your sake.
