A Non-Threatening Gospel posted by John Sorensen on Aug 07, 2015
You know some things simply don’t exist. A round square…a month with 35 days…
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. A Non-Threatening Gospel presentation is in this category. It simply doesn’t exist. The Gospel is a threat to the belief that we can get into Heaven by our good works…it’s a threat to the belief that we’re really good people who deserve Heaven. There’s a difference between the Gospel being threatening and the witness being threatening. The Gospel is…we shouldn’t be. If we’re being pushy and overbearing, well then, we’re wrong. But if you share the Gospel in a considerate manner, having first received permission – and that person then is offended, well you did nothing wrong. In that case the Gospel is exactly what the Bible said it will be in 1 Cor 1:23 – an offense and a stumbling block.
But who knows, even in that case, the Lord can take the Gospel you shared and change the heart of that person who reacted negatively. God’s truth has a way of doing that. Think about it! Then visit ShareLife.today for additional help.
