Preach the Word!
However you catch a fish is how you’ll have to keep it. If you employ the world’s methods, means, and message to bring in lost souls (and weak believers), then those are the same avenues you’ll be forced to travel in order to keep them coming.
The only difference will be once they’re in, you’ll have to magnify the message in order to keep fed the well-trained, fleshly appetite of your worldly catch. There will be no room for the truth that is in Jesus Christ alone. All your time will be consumed gathering and distributing earthly manna to a crowd hungering and thirsting for entertainment and worldly wisdom.
Sadly this road will lead to much anemia and deception, making the people easy prey for the enemy of our souls. Those preaching and teaching utilizing these devices are many times nothing more than hirelings.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4
