"Becoming all things to all people" has been used as a justification for all sorts of ungodly behavior in the name of winning others to Christ. But is that really what the Apostle Paul meant when he said, "I have become all things to all people" (1 Cor. 9:22)? When we look at this statement in its context, we find something radically different: that becoming all things to all people actually means that a Christian must be willing to become a slave to all in order to win people to the Lord. You may indeed be free in Christ, but what freedoms are you willing to give up in order to gain more for the kingdom?
The Missions Mandate Many Christians argue that if God is sovereign in salvation, there is no need to share the gospel. This common fallacy fails to understand the biblical fact that God has not only ordained the ends of salvation, but the means of it. The means is the necessity for Christians to take the gospel to the ends of the earth in obedience to the Great Commission.
