Stewart later comments on the evangelistic message of New Testament evangelism:
"The crucial point is that it was dealing with events, not abstractions or theories or pantheistic generalities, but concrete, actual events localized in time and space. Not ‘the idea of God’ did the apostles preach, but God himself in omnipotent action; not a ‘doctrine of salvation’ but salvation, the living deed; not a Weltanschauung (Ger. worldview) but Christ."
How many evangelists, preachers, ministers do you know who are sure of their message? How many do you know who can articulate that message? How many do you know who live according to it, and not according to ideas of salvation?
