God-centered vs Me-centered Evangelism

God-centeredness is the basis for the grace that saves people. Without grace-full God-centeredness, evangelism will evolve into nice people being nice to other people in hope that they will be nice to God, a compromised gospel with a mild God who exists to benefit me. This results in “nice” Christians who are unconverted, not knowing the joy of forgiving and empowering grace, and unready to meet God on that final day.
