At the time of the apostles they were speaking in all different places.ALTAR CALL ARE YOU REALLY SAVED?
First, we must clarify the question. No one is ever saved "as a
result" of an altar call. We are saved only as a result of the
GOSPEL. The question, as too often asked, betrays an awful
misunderstanding of this most important point. But with that
clarification made, we may pass over this question very quickly.
If and when God truly saves a man during the time of public invitation, then we all say "Amen!"
In all fairness, it is important to observe that the practice was NOT born in the apostolic Church. It is NOT FOUND IN THE MINISTRY
OF JESUS, His apostles or even the church of the post-apostolic
period. We do see Jesus and the apostles "inviting" men and women to Christ and to be saved, but NEVER by means of this particular method. "Invitations" they give, to be sure! But not altar calls. The altar call is "old fashioned" in only a very relative sense.
It is old fashioned to us at this end of the twentieth century,
but it first AROSE MORE THAN EIGHTEEN CENTURIES AFTER CHRIST.
(a made up concept)
The modern altar call has its beginnings in the efforts of
American evangelist Charles
Finney in the early 19th century.
Out on the open...near rivers where They baptized ..in houses.
They made their profession of belief and were baptized .
There were not even churches and,altars as,such .
Communal tables may be ..in homes ..or where ever .
A profession of faith is done WHERE THE SPIRIT MOVES IT TO BE DONE.
One thing .
GOD KNOWS EACH HEART IN ANY SACRAMENT..FIELD ..BEDROOM OR ALTARS..
saying oh well in a,Catholic sacraments it's real but not on an altar
