The 4 Points

Older Version More Modern Version What do the 4 Points stand for?

What is it?

The4Points is a method of “sharing” the gospel that is widely popular amongst free churches in Switzerland. There's also a method used called “Romans Road”, yet, The4Points seem to be more widespread especially amongst youth and in recent years. The4Points have been promoted a lot through bracelets (which were spread by Campus Crusade in Switzerland), wherewith people thought they could reach their school-friends with the Gospel. Thus in lot of places in Sitzerland, young people have already at least seen those 4 points.

The4Points seem to have originated in the UK, now they have been transferred to Switzerland, Germany and since 2014 they have also been translated into Bulgarian.

What is wrong with it?

Basically the4Points is a modern version of the 4 spiritual laws (which was developed by Bill Bright of Campus Crusade). Thus the official presentation of it is an easy-believism-Gospel without mentioning of eternal torment in hell forever after death for the unbelievers (it's cut out and replaced by the phrase “separation from God”) and also without calling sinners to repentance from ALL SIN. Thus because of that there are young people out there in Switzerland who propagate the4points, of which they think it represents the Gospel, yet they have been taught over and over and over again the lies of original sin - that nobody is perfect, that everybody has to sin, nobody can stop sinning and thus that they don't have to stop sinning to get saved or to stay saved. Thus a whole generation in the free churches is lured into the thinking that they are saved, whilst still in horrible sin. They are still loving the world, looking for having fun and thus the CCM-Music that is propagated fully satisfies their desires - yet through the Salvation-in-Sin-without-having-to-Stop-Sinning-Because-Nobody-Can-Stop-Sinning-You-Just-Have-To-Believe-That-Jesus-Died-For-You - shortly usually reffered to as the4Points, those people fully think that they are saved with certainty.
