The "Go Ahead-Make My Day Method" of Evangelism continues to make itself known. This particular method does not wait for a door to open or for an opportunity to come along to share the good news of the gospel of the Kingdom, but rather blasts its way through and creates its own opportunity, kicking down the doors if need be. The reasoning behind it goes something like this: preach the word of God in season or out of season, the hour is getting late and we have less time for tact and subtleties No matter how crude or crass, just get the job done, and don't depend on others to close the deal. It's time for YOU to be the one to close the deal, so use a little muscle if necessary. They'll thank you for it later when they see how close they came to the raging flames of Hell itself, with nothing and no one but you and Clint standing between! I'm just as guilty of this abuse of evangelism as any, probably more. Takes one to know one I suppose. This isn't a car lot, these are end time harvest fields. If the Holy Spirit doesn't "close the deal" it can just as easily be re-opened or undone with similar strong arm tactics.
