More thoughts on 4SL and evangelism

Scot McKnight, in his final post on Campus Crusade's Four Spiritual Laws, makes this point:

This . . . has not been a gripe session so much as an attempt to think through how gospel tracts present the gospel. I know for a fact that Campus Crusaders are taught well how to use the 4SL and I'm quite sure that they are effective because they are, as embodied gospels themselves, advocates who give a living witness to the impact of the gospel. In other words, it is effective because they carry forward the Word of God as people of the Church.

Scot's posts remind us of one important truth: no evangelistic aid is a substitute for God's people going into the world to preach, teach, and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Tracts may help us do that, but they can't do it for us. That's the work of the saints.
