Questions answered by Dr. Gray

Are the lost sheep or “backslidders” worth going after when the resources of the church are focused mostly on soul-winning? Should the church just allow God to deal with these people instead of wasting their time?

Dr. Gray’s Answer:

Thank you for your email. I will do my best to answer.

The resources of the average church are there to reach people, whether saved or lost. When a church visits the bus routes the majority of the people who are brought in on those buses in the average church are saved people not lost people. The majority of the folks who attend the average church are saved and not lost. So, the budgets that support that local church in essence are being utilized to help both the saved and the lost; with the majority of that budget going to help the saved.

The majority of my time is spent not with lost people but saved people! I trust this answers your question. Have a great day!
