An Atheist In Church posted by John Sorensen on May 12, 2016
Why would an atheist be attending church?
I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. So – why did atheist Jed begin attending church? Well, to make a positive impression on a girl. He attended, went back again and again, became convicted by reading the Bible and received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. This is a rather unusual example of a proven fact in America. The number one reason a non-church attender actually attends church is because of a friend invites them. Too often the problem is with us. We, in effect, answer for them by assuming that there’s no way they’ll say yes, so, we don’t even ask!
Here is my suggestion. Let’s allow people to answer for themselves. Invite your friends. The worst they can say is NO. But, you might just be surprised when God uses your question as the motivation for them to say YES. Want to read the rest of Jed’s story? Visit ShareLife.today and click on What’s My Story.
