One day I approached a gentleman with hopes of sharing the Gospel with him. But I learned he was an atheist.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Instead of just walking away, I said, “Wow, I’d really love to talk with you because I don’t get many chances to speak to atheists.” He agreed. I continued with the conversation and said, “I know you don’t belong to any particular denomination or even believe in the Bible, right?” The man quickly agreed. I then asked, “Well, what do you think the main message of the Bible is?” And he said, “If your good outweighs your bad then you go to a good place.” I then had a chance to say, “You know friend, you’re 180 degrees off. Wouldn’t you like to know what the main message of the Bible is before you reject it?” The man agreed and then I got to do the unthinkable; and that is share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with this man.
Now, when we’re out sharing our faith, we’re not trying to win arguments; we’re just trying to share the truth of Jesus. For more tips and tools, visit us at ShareLife.today.
