What Are Altar Calls, and Are They Biblical?

What Are Altar Calls, and Are They Biblical? I answer that question on this week’s episode.

Show Notes:

Principles:

  1. Altar calls are not unbiblical, nor are they a required biblical act.
  2. Don’t measure the effectiveness of your preaching by the immediate emotional response of the people.
    • Matthew 13:5-6
    • Matthew 13:7,22
    • Matthew 4:18-19
    • Matthew 16:13-17
  3. If someone can convince you of something, somebody else can convince you differently.
    • 1 Corinthians 2:1-4
  4. Good preaching is faithful to the text and tells people the truth about who they are, who Jesus is, and the necessity to respond to Him.
    • Galatians 5:19-20
    • Galatians 5:22-23
    • Acts 2:36-38
    • Romans 10:9-10
    • John 16:8
  5. Pastors are called to make disciples who then identify with Christ through baptism, and to teach disciples everything that Jesus commanded.
  6. You aren’t saved because you come to an altar call, you are saved by a deep, heartfelt belief in who Jesus is and His provision for sin.
