    1. Evangelism requires the evangelist to voluntarily self-efface and appropriate the contextual and cultural categories of the one they are evangelizing

      22 To the weak I became weak, in order that I may gain the weak. I have become all things to all people, in order that by all means I may save some. 1 Corinthians 9:22 (LEB)

      22 ἐγενόμην τοῖς ⸀ἀσθενέσιν ἀσθενής, ἵνα τοὺς ἀσθενεῖς κερδήσω· τοῖς πᾶσιν ⸀γέγονα πάντα, ἵνα πάντως τινὰς σώσω. 1 Corinthians 9:22 (LGNTI:SBL)

      Evangelizing requires that we categorically do away with, wipe out, and discard our preferences first: this is because evangelism is an act of love, and love considers its object as more important than itself. The person you are evangelizing should be considered more important than yourself, than your very life even. Evangelism therefore does not begin with self-consideration, but consideration of the one in front of you that you are loving. 

      • What language do they speak?
      • What is their cultural background?
      • What idioms do they use?
      • What matters to them?

      Evangelists are not psychics. This means evangelism with no point of reference for your speaker is: a.) unloving, and b.)unbiblical. Evangelism mirrors the incarnation of Messiah: the local Yahweh tabernacled in flesh, came to his own people, adopted their customs, and spoke with a Galilean accent (John 1:9-14). We need to do likewise with those we are evangelizing: meet them where they are at. Specifically keep this in mind: do not meet them where YOU THINK THEY ARE AT, meet them WHERE THEY ACTUALLY ARE AT
