I choose to talk about the Roman's Road method of evangelism. This method is called an Intellecual method in Evangelism. The Romans road is a simple, and direct way to spread the gospel. According to “Evangelism Is…” written by Earley and Wheeler, the Romans Road Method is simply using verses from the book of Romans to explain the Good News. The verses explain why we need salvation, how God planned salvation, how to receive salvation and the results of salvation. This method is a “road” through the book of Romans. First it starts in Romans 3:23, “ For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (KJV). It continues on throughout Romans 6:23, 5:8, 10:9,13, then 5:1; 8:1 and 8:38-39. This road takes you through all the steps that will lead you directly to God. Romans road has some advantages and disadvantages but I am going to start with the advantages. First most importantly this method is completely Scripturally based and so it gives it more credibility. Another advantage is that it is all in one book of the bible so it is easy to follow and bring someone through. For new believers it is a great way for them to not feel overwhelmed jumping all around scripture. It is very simply stated and to the point, making it very easy to understand. Some disadvantages of Romans road is that it may be too cut and dry for some people. Some of the people that you evangelize to may have heard these verses before and therefore be turned away. Ultimatly there is no perfect method to evangelism, but it is one of the many instruments at our disposal to utilize and make use of.
Part 2- Evangelistic Method #2
Relational evangelism is on of the most important methods in my opinion. Building a personal relationship with people can open the doors to share the Gospel in a meaningful way.
