"But you cannot reason anyone into the Kingdom of heaven. Of course not! No apologist purports to do that. Because reasoning is insufficient, however, it is not therefore unnecessary. The simplest announcement of the Gospel must present it as true. No amount of emotional appeal can stimulate people to accept a message they consider to be false. Speech in favor of the Bible's truth is one of many means the Holy Spirit employs in bringing men to full commitment. The Holy Spirit alone regenerates; but the Holy Spirit has chosen not to regenerate alone."1
