Scare the H-E Double Hockey Sticks out of them?

Fear has been an evangelistic tactic for a long time. But a closer look at Scripture will show that Jesus spoke in scary ways to the religious, but lead with love when speaking to the broken and marginalized people of His day.

I think churches scare the wrong people. Instead of shouting ‘your going to hell!’ at the lost and distant from God… maybe we should take a page out of Jesus’ book and shout warnings at the overly religious and pharisaical.

Jesus does this many times. Can you share an example from Scripture?
