Hello and welcome!
I’m Joe, the creator of Let’s Get This Done website.
As a Catholic layman, I have some personal thoughts on the parting words of Jesus Christ:
“Go out to all the world and proclaim the Good News.”
There is no doubt that an enormous amount of progress has been made on this mission. A substantial portion of humanity has been impacted by the gospel.
Nevertheless, there is quite a bit more that needs to be done. No one would argue that point. And that’s the focus of this blog.
I may as well warn you right up front that I am no theologian, and my ideas are not well developed. But I do have a train of thought, and my posts are all heading in the same positive direction. You might even find some of this stuff amusing.
Here is my very short and completely oversimplified history of Christian evangelism, and where I think it should go.
This post develops the farming metaphor even further.
Here are some of my ideas concerning evangelism as political action.
Why I believe it is so important to put the gospel into the hands of the people.
In this post I present the gospel as a classic love story in the style of Jane Austin.
This post could describe a world without the benefit of the gospel.
It is my opinion that the gospel describes a kingdom of volunteers.
Men and women all over the world volunteer to join.
Men and women all over the world volunteer to participate.
Jesus is in charge of the volunteers.
On these terms, anyone on earth is welcome to join.
If this is your first encounter with Jesus in the gospel, you would be well advised to seek out a local church where you feel comfortable, and learn all you can from the pastor and the church’s ministry team.
A new and extremely well done video production of the gospel is now available, for free, at www.thechosen.tv/app
