The Romans Road
Summary of the Method – According to Earley and Wheeler, “the Romans Road to Salvation is a way of explaining the good news of salvation using verses from the book of Romans (Wheeler). The way that my church explained it to me is that were 5 steps: 1. There is a problem: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:3, NIV). Explain that we are all sinners and that there are none except God that are righteous. 2. The problem comes with a price: “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom 6:23). Since we are sinners, we are deserving of punishment in hell. 3. Payment of the price was paid by Christ’s sacrifice: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8). As propitiation for our sin, Christ took it all on His shoulders and died for us. 4. The prayer that leads to salvation: “if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom 10:9, 13). You need to believe it in your heart and exclaim it with your mouth. 5. Salvation through Jesus leaves us justified: “Therefore, there is now no condemantion for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom 8:1). We have been made new, as if we have never sinned.
After the reading of the scripture ask some basic questions to find out the state of the lost persons mind: 1. Are you a sinner? 2. Do you believe that Jesus died for you? 3. Are you willing to give your life to Jesus today?
Through the reading of these scriptures and the intervention of the Holy Spirit giving witness, when people are ready, they will accept Christ in their heart…...

...Evangelistic Method #1 The Roman Road to Salvation is a very good method because it brings forth what God has in store for all men, women, and children. It shares to the unbeliever that” God loves you and has a plan for you!” Our sinfulness has separated man from God (Roman 3:23 & Romans 6:23). Even though we were sinful and the things man did displeased God, He still loved us, so He sent His Son to die for your sins. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Jesus died for our sins, He was buried, and was raised on the third day “(1Corinthians 15:3-4). Then asked if you would like to receive God’s forgiveness, how wonderful it is to know that even though we were sinners God is given us a pardon through His mercy and grace. This simple yet complete method through its various bible scriptures clarifies to the unbeliever an almost step by step illustration of His sin, what was done to restore him through and Jesus dying for man sins, and most importantly God’s forgiveness. Evangelistic Method # 2 Servant Evangelism was something that Jesus Christ Himself taught and illustrated to the His disciples and Jesus Himself is a model of servant hood, in His selfless giving and His will to serve others. “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). We as His followers must continue to do good works and meet the needs of the less......

Methods of Evangelism

...Methods of Evangelism Romans Road Summary of Method – According to the About Christianity website, “The Romans Road lays out the plan of salvation through a series of Bible verses from the book of Romans. When arranged in order, these verses form an easy, systematic way of explaining the message of salvation.” (1) The Romans Road is the plan of salvation that we often use in our church and with our youth. The verses that we use include: Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8 and 10:9-10 & 13.   Advantages of Using This Method – All of the bible verses are pulled directly from scripture in Romans and give a clear view of the plan of salvation. It is also easy to follow and easy to lead. Lastly, it focuses on one book of the Bible instead of many which could potentially be overwhelming to seeking Christians. Disadvantages of Using This Method – Some seekers may question why a person leading someone to Christ is only using one book of the Bible. Using a different method would avoid that questioning of what someone is trying to “hide” in the rest of the book. Also if you are only teaching out of Romans and have only studied that book then someone asks you a theological question pertaining to something else in the Bible you may not know the answer. Servant Evangelism Summary of Method – Servant Evangelism is, “a simple, straightforward approach to sharing God’s love in simple, practical ways.” (3) Simply put it’s doing nice things for people out of the goodness of your heart.......

Methods of Evangelism

...Summary of Method This method is to use love, compassion, and service to reach people. We have to remember to always have a smile on our face and do this with a generous heart. Meaning that we want to the work of a servant, just as Jesus set an example by washing the disciple’s feet (John 13:1-17). Jesus wants to show that no one is above doing a servant’s work. I also see motivation of servant evangelism in Mathew 25. Jesus is telling his deciples to feed the hungry, give the homeless shelter and cloths, take care of the sick, and meet the essential needs of people, when doing this; it would be the same as if the disciples were meeting the needs of Jesus. Savant Evangelism is more about showing love thru the gospel rather than speaking the gospel. Advantages of Using This Method People tend to remember negative things about people or groups rather than to remember the positive things about the same people or groups. The advantage to Service Evangelism is that it can change the perception that people may have about Christians. Even though negative perception has been brought on to the Christian by themselves throughout time, but people unfairly put all Christians in a negative category. People do not easily remember that hospital, orphanages, and homeless shelters that were started by Christian organizations. Christians should be more active in the roll of showing that someone cares in the lost and dieing world. There is an old saying, “People do......

...Methods of Evangelism Joseph DiDiana Liberty University Methods of Evangelism Evangelistic Method #1: Four Spiritual Laws The four spiritual laws are an “intellectual” method. These laws are a guide to what you need to do to accept Christ as your Lord and savior. These spiritual laws help us manage and strengthen our relationship with God. The first spiritual law is “God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life” (Campus Crusade for Christ, 2007). The second spiritual law says that “Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life” (Campus Crusade for Christ, 2007). The third spiritual law is “Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. Through Him you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life” (Campus Crusade for Christ, 2007). The fourth and final spiritual law is “We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives” (Campus Crusade for Christ, 2007). The four spiritual laws allow for Christians to be more effective witnesses for Christ. Believe This method has a couple of advantages. First, these laws start out in a positive manor. It lets everyone know that God loves you and wants you to come to Him as you are no matter what stage of life you are in. Secondly, it attracts to a group of people that rely on a principle model to explain life around them. These laws give direction, meaning and...

...Carlos DeJesus EVAN 101 D07 08/05/2013 Methods of Evangelism Part ONE - Evangelistic Method #1 - There are spiritual laws that governs are relationship with God. These laws were given in different throughout the Bible. Law one: God loves you, and offers a wonderful plan for your life. In John 3:16 says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” In this verse gave us the solution to all of our problems, He loves us so much He gave us a way out from all of our sins. This was Jesus plan when He came to Earth, in John 10:10 says, “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly”. The reason most people don’t experience an abundant life is because of the second law. Law two: Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore he cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for his life. In Roman’s 3:23 says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” This verse alone states that everyone is a sinner, and everyone fall short of the glory of God. When Adam chose to go on his own independent way, the fellowship with God was broken. Sin became are natural nature in our lives, this is why there’s no one righteous through the eyes of God. In Roman 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death” meaning we are spiritually separated from God. The third law is the only way we could be righteous through the eyes of God. Third law: Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin.......

...Methods of Evangelism Yvette A. Vega Liberty University Online The Roman Road The Romans Road is an academic evangelistic method of sharing the Gospel which uses an orderly method in laying out the plan of salvation through Bible verses in the book of Romans. It establishes who needs salvation, why we need salvation, how God provides that salvation, how can man respond to Gods provision of salvation, and the result of man responding to Gods salvation. The benefit of using the seven verses is that they are all located in the book of Romans. This method the Bible verses are ordered into a straight forward teaching that is easy to outline to a person that you may be trying to share the Gospel with. Initially the case is established who is in need of salvation, (everyone), then . “As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” (Romans 3:10-12 New International Bible {NIV}). “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23 NIV) In these few verses we establish the fact that everyone is unrighteous before God and in need of Salvation. After establishing the need for salvation “for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23 NIV). The result of our sin is death. God however provides a way for our salvation “ But......

...EVAN 101 13 Oct 2013 Methods of Evangelism Part ONE – Evangelistic Method #1 Of the two intellectual methods of evangelism that was studied this week the Four Spiritual Laws will be the one that will be discussed in this writing. The Four Spiritual Laws consist of the follows: 1. God loves you: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life," (John 3:16). 2. Man is sinful and separated from God. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," (Rom. 3:23); "For the wages of sin is death," (Rom. 6:23); "But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God," (Isaiah 59:2). 3. Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me" (John 14:6); "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us," (Rom. 5:8). 4. We must individually receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name," (John 1:12); "if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved," (Rom. 10:9); "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God," (Eph. 2:8).

Methods of Evangelism

...Methods of Evangelism PART ONE - Evangelistic Method #1 The first evangelistic method I chose to write about is the Romans road (Wheeler, 2000). The Romans road is a simple way of walking a person down a road to salvation. According to Wheeler (2000), this method uses verses in Romans to show a lost person why they need a savior. Romans 3:23 (New International Version) tells them that they are not alone in their sin; we have all sinned. Romans 6:23 tells us that the penalty for sin is death but God has given us a gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Then in Romans 5:8 we are told how much God loves us despite our sinful nature. We then use Romans 10:9, 13 to tell the unbeliever how s/he can become a child of Christ. Then we ask him/her if they would like to make that choice now, regardless of whether they asked Christ into their lives or not. The next passages are Romans 5:1; 8:1; 8:38-39. In these next passages of scripture we discuss exactly what the eternal implications of a choice to live for Christ mean. The advantage of the Romans road is that it is pretty cut and dry evangelism. If you have someone who is willing to sit and listen to what you have to say or even read with you, it would be awesome. This method in my opinion works well with people who have already been prepared. The disadvantage to this method is that it’s hard to just walk up to someone and start down the Romans road. You need someone who’s willing to have that conversation. If you......

Methods of Evangelism

...Methods of Evangelism Nathalie Graham Liberty University Online The Romans Road Summary of Method – The Romans Road is an “intellectual” plan using a collection of verses from the New Testament book of Romans to explain God’s gift of salvation. When these verses are arranged in order they offer a systematic presentation of the plan of salvation (What is Roman’s Road?) Through the presentation of these verses one learns that we are all sinners (Romans 3:10, 23), that the wages of sin are death (Romans 6:23), that Jesus paid for our sins on the cross (Romans5:8), that salvation comes through faith, by confessing with our mouths and believing in our hearts that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9,10), and the need to call on the Lord for salvation (Romans 10:13) (What Is Roman’s Road?). The sharing of these scriptures opens the door for one to accept salvation. Advantages of Using This Method – There are several advantages to using this method of evangelism. First, for those that are new to witnessing to others the Roman’s Road offers a solid Biblical plan to winning souls. This method is laid out so that even children and the newest Christian would be able to share Christ with others using the scriptures. Secondly, the plan exposes the non-believer to the scriptures. Thirdly, this method is effective in reaching those that accept that the Bible is the Word of God and are willing to accept its teachings.

Methods of Evangelism

...Methods of Evangelism Joshua Fleming Liberty University Online The Roman Roads Summary of Method – The Roman Road is a methodic evangelism approach of presenting the Gospel through various bible verses throughout the book of Romans. From this approach of evangelism, each of the verses are placed in a systematic method to show us who is in need of salvation, why they are in need of salvation, the way in which God will provide salvation, ways in which we can respond to God’s salvation, and finally the results of us responding to God’s gift of salvation. In Romans 3:10-12, and 23 its states “No one is righteous—not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard”. These verses show us that every single person is in need of salvation. It states boldly that we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s standards. In Romans 6:23 it states “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” This verse shows us that as sinners and unrighteous people our consequences of our sin is death. Although it does show us that we deserve death it always gives us hope through the gift in which God has given us. In Romans 5:8 it shows us that “God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” God gave us the greatest gift anyone could......

...Methods of Evangelism Tyler Blalock Liberty University Online The Romans Road Summary of Method – The Romans Road is a method of evangelism and is considered an intellectual method. It is a plan of salvation that utilizes various verses derived from the book of Romans. These verses are often memorized and used by evangelists to form a cohesive explanation of the need of salvation. Advantages of Using This Method – There are several advantages to the Romans Road method. One is that it is an easy way to explain and share the Gospel. These various verses, when put together, depict a clear and easy presentation. Another advantage is that it very much Biblically based. In explaining salvation, it is literally using Scripture in sharing the faith. Disadvantages of Using This Method – One disadvantage is the fact that all of the sources in this method are Scripture. While this is a great thing in reality, for a non-Christian who does not assume the Bible to be God’s word, it can come across as less credible from his/her perspective. The Romans Road method is a path to salvation and clearly uses Scripture as support and sources. This method has the potential of leading into a discussion on the credibility of the Bible, which can become off topic in leading someone to Christ. In other words, for a non-believer who wants to refute the word of God, it can potentially become a distraction from the discussion of salvation. Lifestyle Evangelism Summary of Method –......

Methods of Evangelism

...Methods of Evangelism Romans Road Method Summary of Method – The Romans road method of evangelism is a way of leading the lost to salvation using verses from the book of Romans out of the Word of God. It is a very powerful and effective way of explaining why we need salvation, how God has provided us the way to salvation, how we are to receive it, and what’s the outcome after receiving it. Advantages of Using This Method – One advantage to this method is that it’s simple to understand. The biggest advantage is that we’re using the Word of God and by doing so we’re getting supernatural power by the Holy Spirit to start working on the person or persons we’re talking to. We’re not the ones that “close” people into salvation, it’s the Holy Spirit that does the work after we’ve planted and watered the seeds. Disadvantages of Using This Method – When using this message it could be really easy for the people hearing this to not fully understand the meat and potatoes behind salvation. Too many times than I care to count I see believers caring more about the numbers of people led to salvation than the actual quality of it. If not done correctly people tend to think that just simply saying the words is enough when it’s not. In order for true salvation to take place one must confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and “truly” believe it in their hearts or else they’re buying a “knock off” version of salvation and being misled which could be eternally damaging.

...Running head: METHODS OF EVANGELISM METHODS OF EVANGELISM By Mark Rohaley LU ID #26417431 Liberty University Evangelism 101-B18 LUO Professor Billingsley METHODS OF EVANGELISM Intellectual Method-The Four Spiritual Laws Introduction There are many methods to share the good news Of Jesus Christ-Yeshua Messiah and I believe we must use more than a few to reach strangers and friends or family. As the Word says, “and he that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30 KJV). As an intellectual method I prefer the ‘The Four Spiritual Laws’ method from author Bill Bright and Campus Crusade Ministries. Although I find this method almost exact to the ‘The Roman Road’ method. There are laws that govern our physical universe and laws that govern our spiritual relationship with the one true God. Therefore we must know them and His word to be a faithful witness to the world in our lives. Summary I myself always seem to insert somewhere at the start in evangelizing, the Lord loves you very much and has a wonderful plan for your life, which also is the opening and Law one to this method and maybe why I like it so well. Law one is God’s love and plan. God’s love; “for God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life” (KJV John 3:16). Gods plan; “I am come that they might have life, and that they have it more abundantly” (KJV John 10:10). Law two of this method explains why most......

...EVAN101-B12 October 10, 2011 Methods of Evangelism Part ONE – Evangelistic Method #1 – The Romans Road. The Romans Road lays out the plan of salvation through a series of Bible verses from the book of Romans. When arranged in order, these verses form an easy, systematic way of explaining the message of salvation. There are many different versions of Romans Road with slight variations in Scriptures, but the basic message and method is the same. Many evangelical missionaries, evangelists, and lay people memorize and use Romans Road when sharing the good news. Some of the Scriptures generally used in Romans Road include: Romans 3:10, 3:23, 5:8, 5:12, 6:23, 10:9-11, and 10:13. Romans 3:10 states: “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one.” Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

Method of Evangelism

...Ronald Hammer EVAN 101-B19 October 5, 2011 “Methods of Evangelism Paper” Part ONE - Evangelistic Method #1 - The “Intellectual Method” that I have chosen is the Roman road. The Roman Road method is a very simple method that utilizes seven verses of salvation taken from the book of Romans in the New Testament. While many people believe they will go to heaven because they have done charity work, been baptized as a child, attended church, or treated others fairly, the Bible declares that none of us can live up to God’s standards of righteousness. Therefore, we need a road to God that doesn’t rely on anything we do, but rather, relies on the gift of His grace alone. The bible verses that are utilized are Romans 1:20-21 “For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.” Roman 2:23 “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” Romans 5:8 “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 10:9-10 “If you confess...
