In the NT period, how was evangelizing done? The gospel was preached by word of mouth, and was usually (always?) accompanied by signs and wonders. “And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” (Mark 16:20) “… (the gospel message) was confirmed to us by those who heard Him (Jesus), God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will” (Hebrews 1:3-4) The new believers joined churches where they received more word-of-mouth training. Today, how is evangelizing done? The gospel is preached by word of mouth. Pentecostals/Charismatics, here and abroad, do their best to preach the gospel with signs and wonders. In these meetings, people don’t become believers by reading gospel tracts or NTs. They respond to the spoken word and the confirming signs, as in NT times. The new believers join churches where they receive more word-of-mouth training, and also written materials, which help them grow. Today, when evangelists preach the gospel … how does them having the completed canon of Scripture change anything? The preaching and the saving is all done verbally. Why should evangelists no longer desire the benefit of confirming signs and wonders? Why would the Lord want to change His tried-and-true method of evangelizing?
