Hey everyone, as apologists I think we sometimes want to launch into a beautiful, well formed argument with all of our unsaved friends and see them come to Jesus. But sometimes it’s not the right time for logical argument. How do you guys think the Engel Scale can help us to be wise in the way that we approach evangelism?
The Engel scale is a way of trying to discern what stage of their spiritual journey another person is in. For me, one way to use it is to try to figure out where those in your circle of influence fall on this scale and then try to act in accordance with that state - cultivate, sow, harvest or multiply. Of course we may be wrong in our estimation, but I think it is a very helpful starting place.
What are your thoughts??? Any stories you could share to help others?
