Altar Calls?

Follow the link to a sermon on Sermonaudio. I do typically invite people to come forward for prayer at the end of services, either with me or alone at the front of the sanctuary, and I will certainly end many services by encouraging people to put their faith in and follow Jesus if they desire to be saved. I am not at all comfortable with suggesting anyone will be saved by coming forward, praying a prayer or any other outward act.

I think the speaker in this sermon gives some very compelling arguments for not using the traditional alter call and it certainly makes me think more deeply about what I do say when closing our services.

I would love to hear some feedback!
