It pleases God by the foolishness of preaching the gospel to save them who believe on Christ (Jn 6.47, Mk 16.15, Rom 1.16 & 10.14, Acts 16.31, 1 Cor 1.21). But evangelicals have added that to be saved a person must say a prayer (See THE SINNER'S PRAYER on www.good-newsbracelet.org.). It is impossible to preach a prayer. The gospel is simple enough for anybody to preach - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (Read 1 Cor 15.1-4)."
This gospel was good enough for the apostle Paul (without the sinner's prayer) and it is good enough for you and I as well. Daily ask those who God puts in your path if they have heard the good news or proclaim "Good News" (Gospel means good news.). Then tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day." The instant a person believes on Christ after the gospel is preached to them they become saved (See 47 PASSAGES ON BELIEF to confirm that a person is saved by believing on Christ and for a definition of saved see SAVED! on www.good-newsbracelet.org.).
