We often confuse just what evangelism is. We call it the Gospel, but that really cannot be correct. Why? Simply because evangelism is the proclamation of the Gospel. So they cannot be the same thing. I really like what J.I. Packer has to say about this: “According to the New Testament, evangelism is just preaching the gospel, the evangel” (Evangelism, 49). And he is right. Evangelism is preaching the Gospel.
