Mark Dever on false evangelism

We need to see an end to a wrong, shallow view of evangelism as simply getting people to say yes to a question, or to make a one-time decision. We need to see an end to the bad fruit of false evangelism. We need to see an end to worldly people having assurance that they’re saved just because they once took a stand, shook a hand, or repeated a prayer. We need to see real revival not being lost amid our own manufactured and scheduled meetings that we euphemistically call “revivals,” as if we could determine when the wind of God’s Spirit would actually blow.
