Biblical Review of Altar Calls Apr 16, 2004
Dr. Murray has given us a tool. It is a tool that allows us to pull away the blinders of the present day altar call system of the evangelical church and presents a biblical critique of the system. Murray, while Reformed in his own theology, stays true to his tast and offers the reader biblical proof that the altar call system is a created system by men. It comes from a pragmatic view of evangelism that emphasises numbers above true coversions. It has come to us from Charles Finney to Billy Graham.
My hope is that every Christian will read this book and understand that the altar calls, the "sinner's prayer," and other forms of mass evangelism are not found in the Bible. Discipleship, however, is but then again that will cost you (Luke 14:25-35) and we don't want to pay a price for anything, especially salvation (Titus 1:16; Jude 3-4).
