Please demonstrate via Scripture. I can and did.
Go back and read who Jesus was talking to in Matthew 28:16. And please note the context of "end of this age." To what "age" was Jesus referring? The church age didn't exist then. It started weeks later. Also please use Scripture to answer why Paul passed through Amphipolis and Appalonia if the mission for Christianity is evangelism. Why did he pass through to get to Thessalonica? Please answer why none of the nine attributes of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23, addressed TO believers only, does not include evangelism. If evangelism is the mission of Christianity, why is not one of the fruits of the Spirit? In Revelation 3:20, when Jesus is knocking at the door of a BELIEVER'S and NOT an unbeliever's heart, why does He not say when a believer opens the door Jesus will come in and they'll both go to a beach in southern California with video cameras rolling to witness to people? What does the Lord Jesus WANT to do with believers when they open the door and He enters? Witness? Evangelize or HAVE FELLOWSHIP with Him?
And again, where is the pattern for evangelism in the Old Testament if the mission in this age is to evangelize?
Evangelism is a wonderful RESULT of faithful believers but it is NOT the goal nor mission of the church. Sadly, it has become the ultimate mission. Fellowship with Christ, fellowship with other believers, righteousness by faith resulting in the fruit of the Spirit IS.
Acts 1:8 "but ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." That is the commission He left us; His parting words ought to be important to remember and act upon I should think.
I'm trying to reply to JGraham III response but he has no reply button under his comments so here goes for JGraham III:
WHO was there present with the Lord Jesus in Acts 1 before His ascension? The same 11 guys who were present in Matthew 28. WHEN was He talking to them? What dispensation were they in? Good heavens, the Lord has so much more detailed information for believers in the epistles, yet not one peep about evangelism being the mission for Christianity. Of course evangelism is a wonderful thing and it is how God uses prepared believers to give information to unbelievers about deliverance. There is NO argument about the relevance of evangelism. However, it has become THE mission of Christianity and it is NOT the mission anywhere in the Scriptures for believers in the church age. IF it were THE goal of Christianity, God would have that illustration all over the Old Testament, like His covenant and the Levitical system being pictures of Christ's work on the cross. If it were the goal of Christianity, Paul would have mentioned to believers in Rome, Galatia, Thessalonica, Corinth, etc that Christian maturity means spreading the gospel wouldn't he? Not a peep. Instead fruit of the Spirit is the emphasis in all his letters. In the REAL last thing Jesus spoke to the entire church (and not just to the eleven apostles in Acts 1:8 very near the END of Daniel's 69th week in the age of Israel) which is Revelation 2-3, He does not mention evangelism whatsoever. Why not?

But your faith is always being dismissed by every public school and nearly every liberal teacher. And the teachers are taught that they HAVE to keep to the godless orthodoxy or they won’t have a job.
April 29, 2016 at 10:01am
God holds you personally responsible for your choices, its too easy to blame the other guy. I’m sure God has a place for you, but I doubt it is by yourselves. Want to go find Christians, serve someone, and you will find them. Just a thought, but I do understand that the people in church get more attention if they help the church.
Actually GS, I am working in mission work in the ghetto. I have a devoted close relationship with Jesus. People like you that come across as judgmental are the very ones that turn folks off from church. There was only a judgmental tone to you, not any love at all and thats what Jesus wanted.

I miss Jello, but it is in every grocery store. Maybe I will get some today.
Jello has changed, it's not the same as it was 10 years ago, you will be disappointed
April 29, 2016 at 8:24am
I have never heard of these 4 dynasties, can you give me chapter and verse so I can look them up? I am not being facetious. I believe it when God says man will never fully understand what is in the Bible, the my ways are above your ways kind of thing.

Come on, don’t call him names, he has had the god of this world blind his eyes. I hope you wouldn’t kick a disabled person, well, Earl is spiritually disabled. We are called to speak the truth in love, and stand. There is a God, who says his creation is enough for anyone to know he exists, but there will be those who choose not to see. With how everything works together, I admit it takes a lot of faith to think there is not a designer out there. Earl, when have you EVER seen inorganic become organic (the building block of the evolutionists). Or forget that and tell me when you have EVER seen things go from chaos TO order. It does not happen without someone or something intervening. Just go look at your room, does it move toward order or move toward chaos. ………… ………………… ………………. ……………………… . to take it further, lets look at “evolution”, so Ok you have inorganic cells that are touched with power and heat, and they become organic and become “life”. Please explain how the water breathing, thing with gills then develops lungs at the exact moment and exact place where another thing also develops lungs, and they quickly mate and reproduce a thing that now breathes oxygen without gills, and it walks. Don’t you get my point, that all of these things would HAVE to happen at once because natural selection would ALWAYS choose an animal that could both breathe in water and breathe up on land.

Yes parents are part of the problem, but when we hand our kids over to the indoctrination centers called schools, our kids are being taught lies 8 hour a day. They are now taught from kindergarten that their opinions are fine and no one has the right to question them. The pro-gay has gotten so bad that these kids do not think ANYTHING is immoral as making a moral judgement. With whole churches jumping on the gays is ok bandwagon, you cannot expect many (any) moral children within a generation……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
The rest of us will see our politicians steal ALL of our money. With the criminals being let out, our crime rates will soar, and we will beg the government who set all of this up to protect us, and give away what little freedom they had not taken already. To pay some of the debt, the banks will just take a portion of our savings, and lock down the country with the military when someone pops their head up to say it is wrong. You didn’t think the Obomination bought 14,000 reinforced checkpoint buildings without a plan on where to use them. You are going to need papers to drive across the country.
So the liberals and progressives will stop any child from acknowledging God. (other than a vague, do what ever you want, phony god)
 April 29, 2016 at 7:38am
God told us this was going to happen, but the Christians who ignore what God’s word says, act surprised. The good news that God saves is being heard all over the world, with millions accepting Christ. America has turned our back on God, and we are about to feel the consequences. When America has a lawless President, we suffer. Just look at the news and see where criminals, and illegal criminals are let of of jail so the president can, once again, lie to our faces. …… . …… . .. . …..
You say myth of religion? So how can a book tell us the past AND the future? The way your body is made, the way the Earth works, the placement in the universe where we could not exist on this planet if it was a couple miles (relative) nearer to the sun or further away………………….. ……………………………… .So you can know the Bible tells what will happen, look for a war that starts from the river Euphrates. It is God’s next sign post. I do not know precisely when it will happen, but I feel like it will be very soon. Then go back and read about the trumpets in Revelation. 1 = WW1 2= ww2, 3 = Chernobyl (wormwoood), 4 = time changing , 5 = Saddam and his withdraw from Kuwait, and 6 will be the war coming from the Euphrates. 7 is the Return of Christ to this Earth.

I am really starting to dislike the Blaze, Every stupid chance they get we see the Megsl*t on their news. Sorry Glenn SHE SUCKS.
 April 24, 2016 at 2:45pm
@kmichaels. Repeating the same lie is a progressive tactic. WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY!, But now the People see how corrupt the parties are, and how they make only self-serving rules designed to nominate a pos jackwagon they can control and keep the money flowing. The GOP did NOTHING TO STOP THE OBOMINATION. So you know where they stand —- Always against the people And I am conservative, and must not be your “most” and wonder who in your crazy mind is the “most”
Who famously said Democracy is defined as two wolves and a lamb voting on what they will have for dinner??? Was it Ben Franklin?? The senario above is a small example of why we are a Republic. shhhh don’t tell the Trumpbots this, they will never believe it.
I never said we are a democracy, however US history teaches that the founding fathers were in favor of individual freedom to vote, first and foremost. The representative concept is useful in the event that resources and conditions would not work from a practical standpoint unless better technology allowed for it. Over time nominees were elected by a primary vote from the people, when conditions allow, which they now do. So thinking people understand that when at all possible the individual voters should be allowed to select their rulers. After that then the rulers are supposed to represent the people the best they can.
Why do you dopey Cruztians think you understand the system better than others?
You are right with Eric Cantor losing his position you would think they got it but NOOOOO they just pushed on like nothing happened, then they started pulling all these dirty tricks against the conservatives told me all i needed to know.
 April 24, 2016 at 2:40pm
Still no proof of lying, just using the rules as written
There need be no proof to anything that Trump says.
He just needs to say it, and many people will believe it.
If America gets Trump, it's because a vast majority deserve Trump.
Just like others justified slavery and now abortion. Just playing within the rules. Of course Christ was never one to play within the rules of man.

@kmichaels Please go back to school, what you call un-American is Uniquely American
 April 24, 2016 at 2:36pm
If you go along with the “stolen” meme you are stupid
April 24, 2016 at 1:36pm
Once again for the pea-brained. If Trump wins 1237 he is the nominee, but if he falls short by even one, he MAY not be the nominee. So now all of the Trump fans are saying the he should be GIVEN the race if he is close. Well he may become the nominee, but can only do so by getting 1237 on some ballot (first or tenth doesn’t matter, its a race for the first with 1237 DELEGATES.) Can you all be so ignorant that you do not understand that a corrupt party puts itself BEFORE the voters to get the candidate it wants. e.g. Mc idiot, and Mr. romneycare. (both are better suited for the Demoncrat party, or to keep the money flowing for the RINOS)
And now for the pea brained of the pea brains. Not letting the will of the voters decide is improper, un-American and just a low life way of doing things.
@kmichaels Please go back to school, what you call un-American is Uniquely American
That is why Trump should go after in the legal way to get all the un-bound delegates he can, any way he can at this point! All they are doing is setting up the democrats with the house and senate at this time! And maybe the White House. All by the plan it works for then either way. Some will lose their positions of power but not all and we get the same results for another 4 years. With a SCOTUS being liberal and then this country is gone!!!!! You are right about Mc idiot since he lost he has gone full blown progressive without looking back and now he thinks Arizona is going to put him back in office.
April 24, 2016 at 1:28pm
Show me the proof, and if it is valid, I’ll go with it. But I do know truth. God sent his son to die for my sin, and that since I accepted that free gift, I end up on the new Earth to live with Christ forever. (this whole Heaven thing is just not what the Bible says). Truth is that on my own, I am as evil and unrighteous as any Demoncrat you have ever met. But by the blood of Jesus, I AM REDEEMED (bought back, and given right standing with God Almighty) (Not that impostor referred to as allah, you know the one whose “prophet” says lie, cheat, extort money, and kill to be blessed by a made up god).

I like the month layover in Japan, what a waste of money.
Gotta be able to charge those batteries to stay aloft at night and on cloudy days. BTW, those batteries? huge polluters.
I concede the accomplishment, but we've got a loooong way to go before solar overtakes fossil fuel as the energy provider of choice.
 April 24, 2016 at 12:20pm
Wow, what pot or what kettle?? Donald admits to greasing the palms of people he needed so he could get business done, and admits to giving to both parties to get what he wants. Now his son, with no proof of wrong doing says that Cruz is doing this. what is his proof? What do the “rules” allow candidates to do? Sounds like soft bribery, you know, pay for the convention, some meals, and a few little perks. Reminds me of Congress that exempts itself from insider trading laws so they all become millionaires. (they are so lucky I’m not God, they would be cleaning toilets for eternity)
Donald admitted to donating to politicians, yes. He donated a fair amount to Ted Cruz for example. Now, are you saying that Ted Cruz allowed his palms to be greased by Donald Trump? If so, that is illegal and Ted Cruz should be removed because of his selling of influence. It has now been doing noted that Ted Cruz is also an influence peddler.
And yet, he goes around calling Cruz, lying Ted, then without hesitation crows about loving the low information voters, which he probably really does, and my guess laughs about how stupid and easy to manipulate they are. The man condemns lobbyists, then hires one to run his campaign. He’s worse than Obummer!
 April 24, 2016 at 12:12pm
Just go ask the low information voters who Margret Sanger wanted to purge from the U.S. , and who just promised free abortions to, and then ask how they can ever vote Demoncrat again….. Their lives depend upon getting away from this insanity.
First they will have to find the History Books printed before the 1960s Progressive Revisionism. After that Margaret Sanger was Mother Teresa.
And let us not forget that Hillary was given the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood. Hillary has never condemned Sanger for her racist views or PP for issuing the honorary award in Sanger’s name. Blacks / libs are now pushing to remove all names of confederacy Civil War heroes from schools, streets, etc. But they have no problem with Sanger being featured prominently in the Smithsonian museum.
