I call it “missionalism” rather than “evangelism.” It’s when the good news about the
mission replaces the Good News about Jesus.

Look again at the Ablaze! homepage. What do you find? How many we have reached.
How much we have raised. How many congregations or districts are involved. How
many critical events have ocurred. “Help us spread the Ablaze! Movement. Help us
spread the word about the Ablaze! vision.”

Ablaze! seems to do a better job of promoting itself than promoting the
Gospel. It’s almost as though the inventors of Ablaze! have confused
Ablaze! with the Gospel.

That would explain that exclamation mark ...and many other things.
