How to Reach the Masses – Problem solved

I found the clipping I posted below while looking through and old issue of The King’s Business which was a monthly publication of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles from 1910 to 1970. In the first decades of its publication, it was the leading journal for conservative Christianity and the early fundamentalist movement. It’s editor was R.A. Torrey. The clipping below is from the January 1911 edition.

The King’s Business

We debate and argue and suggest solutions and methods for reaching our world. Churches seek to be relevant and adopt all sorts of worldly means in which to attract the masses.

Perhaps we should learn from one of the greatest soul winners and evangelists of all time, Dwight L. Moody (and there are many others who have said the same thing): To reach the masses, go to them.”  We’ve got to get out of the mindset which expects the world to come to us – we must go to them!
