QUICK PRAYERISM

“Quick Prayerism is an evangelistic methodology that is
quick to get people to pray a sinner’s prayer after a shallow
gospel presentation and usually without any hint of the
necessity of repentance (or by redefining repentance to be the
same as faith or to be a mere change of mind).

It is quick to pronounce those people saved and to give
them “assurance” and to try to baptize them even if they
barely show any interest and even if they give zero biblical
evidence of having been born again.

Frequently, Quick Prayerism incorporates psychological
salesmanship manipulation. …..

In Quick Prayerism, an empty “sinner’s prayer” typically
replaces Holy Spirit conviction and miraculous regeneration.
Quick Prayerism is characterized by soul winning reports
that are grossly exaggerated, since the number of real
conversions (as evidenced by changed lives) are tiny
compared to the overall statistics. ……

We realize that not everyone that professes Christ will “pan
out.” There will be false professions in any ministry, but
Quick Prayerism is characterized by the amazing fact that
THE VAST MAJORITY of its professions are EMPTY.”

— David Cloud
