As a teenager growing up in Church I experienced a philosophy of ministry particularly in youth services which could be called easy believism. It consists of a speaker using emotional stories meant to make a young person feel sad or frightened then giving a very generic challenge following the sermon which didn’t demand a high commitment For instance a speaker would tell stories about Hell so the young kids would be scared and then ask anyone who didn’t want to go to Hell make a commitment to Christ that night. This would be followed by a short sinners prayer after which the teen who has no understanding of the Gospel is declared “saved.” read the rest at the link below
