Question 160

How should we spread the gospel in the modern world?

 

Answer to Question 160

 

Taking upon yourself to spread the Gospel teaching is very dangerous. There are people out there from various denominations who know the Gospels inside out, but lack the spiritual understanding to interpret them. I think for anyone Orthodox to preach he must first study Orthodox theology and understand how the Church and the Church fathers interpret scripture otherwise he will be devoured by all the wolves out there ready to pounce on him. The best way to be a witness to the Gospels is to live by the Gospel and let your way of life do the preaching.
