In recent newsletters, Bro. Blust talks about some of the church’s activities. He says that church members have been taught professionalism (with an emphasis on ambassadorship/royal priesthood), conduct (with an emphasis on fruits of the Spirit), modest dress (with an emphasis on dressing up, not down), and punctuality. Bro. Blust says this causes unbelievers to see genuineness in the believers’ lives, and results in a greater response from them.
Bro. Blust also says that when the church passes out Gospel tracts, many religious groups pass out envelopes expecting donations for whatever reason. Whenever people offer money, the church members reject it and tell people the Gospel is free. Bro. Blust reports that many religious groups have entertainment programs and when the Blusts invite unbelievers to church services, people ask how much is the admission or entrance fee. Pray that the Lord’s churches remain obedient to the Great Commission, rejecting religion’s methodology.
