Altar Calls

Jamie Barrows

Darrell Dow pointed me at an article on the history of Altar calls. I knew it was a recent(Relative to the history of Christianity) practice, but had no idea how it got started.

My church does not do altar calls, but I’ve attended many that have in the past. I personally do not like altar calls because I feel it is an attempt to pressure someone into making what should be a well thought out and considered decision. When you are making the most important decision in your life, it shouldn’t be made because someone pressured you into making it.

But given how prevalent the practice is, it can be interesting to read up on how it all got started. The Story Behind – Walk the Aisle
