Bluegrass Bible Beat: How Jesus gave altar calls
Many services close with an “altar call,” when the preacher invites those who wish to commit (or renew their commitment) to the Lord Jesus Christ to come forward to the altar. Strange as it might seem, however, nowhere does scripture refer to such a practice. Rather, the practice presents a relatively new historical development – first used by 1830’s evangelist Charles G. Finney. Opinions about the altar call vary; some praise the practice as publicly evincing an inward change of heart. Others, however, criticize the altar call as tending to mislead folks that the mere act of going forward and repeating some prayer offered by the preacher will, in and of itself, save someone. Whatever one’s view about the altar call might be, most would agree the altar call aims, effectively or not, to show some commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ.
