on What Evangelism is Not

Of the many actions designed to improve society, some are wonderful (e.g., the abolition of Slavery) and some are terrible (e.g., legalizing the killing of unborn children). But none of them, not even the best are the gospel of Jesus Christ. –Mark Dever, The gospel and personal evangelism, pg 75.

When our eyes fall from God to humanity, social ills replace sin, horizontal problems replace the fundamental verticals problem between us and God, winning elections eclipses winning souls.- Mark Dever, The gospel and personal evangelism, pg 75.

Evangelism is not proclaiming the desirability of a liquorless world and persuading people to vote for prohibition. Evangelism is not proclaiming the desirability of sharing wealth and persuading people to take political action to achieve it. –Mark Dever, The gospel and personal evangelism, pg 75-76.
