Rebuttal to Decision & Discipleship

Discipleship doesn’t begin at decision. ┬áDecision is merely a point (albeit an important point) along the journey of discipleship.

  1. “A” decision vs. many decisions? What does it look like when decision is something other than a “point”?

  2. The evangelical church in america has, I think, overemphasized the point of decision. I know several folk who are sold out, born again, orthodox, evangelical followers of Christ. They can’t tell you when exactly the began to truly believe. There was no Pauline style conversion. It as a gradual movement of the Holy Spirit in their life. They can only tell you now they do believe, with all their heart, mind, soul and strength. I believe they are indeed brethren (and sistren).

    Decision may be a lightning bolt. It may be a bunch of little, almost too subtle to feel, zaps. Regardless, it is the Holy Spirit that convicts unto repentance. Our job is to preach the gospel.
