An Altered Call

"Only after we are thoroughly convinced that God's Word is powerful enough to save (without added methods or techniques) will we be able to do away with the man-made altar call system. But when we do, we are able to see God work in people's lives without our manipulative interference. As a result, all of the glory goes to the Lord--and we can concentrate on being faithful in urgently inviting people to Christ rather than being numerically successful."
