Learn THEN Evangelize
People seem to think that nothing matters but evangelism, and so the Church herself becomes weaker instead of stronger. The way to evangelize, ultimately, is to build up the Church. If every member of the Christian Church were adult, were strong, were able to take strong meat, and to teach others, you would find that the world would be evangelized in a way we have never known. It is you and I who are to do this. We are not to sit back in crowds and let one or two do everything. We are all meant to be teachers, every one of us; and in this is the way in which we become teachers. Never was there such an opportunity for the individual Christian as there is at this moment.
