在台灣分享你的信仰需要努力，耐心和犧牲。Sharing your faith in Taiwan takes dedication, patience, and sacrifice.
After inviting everyone you know to church, you find out that many people are just not interested.
The first encouragement from the church is to pray for them and trust God.
But of course after many people are still unwilling to join the church, there has to be creative thinking and new strategies.
Undoubtedly, many churches will eventually cater their evangelism to the needs, preferences, and style of the unchurched.
In Taiwan, this means inviting them to a neutral space where they are promised good food and drink as well as positive messages not directly related to the Bible to make them feel blessed.
After you give them free food and drink and tell them all the good things you can think of (as well as gifts), then you can try to get them to come to church.
It's a classic approach to grow a religious organization and it is used most famously by various cults who will tell you only what is necessary to keep you coming back. Once they are sure you have become accustomed to the group and you become good friends, they can detail the whole of what they believe.
This approach has famously been named seeker sensitive. It dilutes the whole truth of the faith so that newcomers won't be frightened away. And of course it is successful, but the problem is obvious.
As Paul Washer wittingly said, "If the church uses carnal means to draw carnal men, it will be forced to continue and even grow in carnality in order to keep them."
Within this approach, people will believe that conversion takes a long time and then even after conversion it takes a longer time before that convert thinks of himself as a disciple and is willing to die for his or her faith.
As long as they are giving tithes and growing spiritually, these churches don't seem to mind, but this approach is not found in scripture.
In scripture, especially the book of Acts, it is very clear that the preaching of the Gospel with signs and wonders following is what draws people to believe and become disciples. It is a work dependent on the Spirit, not our own creative approaches.
But if the signs and wonders don't happen (it seems the Spirit isn't confirming the Gospel), then what other choice do we have?
It is simple. We must go back to the foundation of the faith and ask why the signs and wonders aren't confirming our preaching.
Where do we have to repent?
What areas do we have to change our mind?
What reformations do we have to initiate?
The revival must first start with us before we can reach the unchurched.
We must wait once more for the pouring out of the Spirit and depend solely on God for the harvest.
Jesus said to look at the fields for they are white for harvest, but the workers are few.
Let's become those worthy servants who are filled with the Spirit.
Let's stop using methods from our flesh for we cannot convert even one soul with our own efforts.
With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
