This song is sung by Katie Perry, who has professed Christ as a child and was once a Christian singer and has tattooed Jesus on her wrist, but now sings about a lesbian lifestyle.
“I kissed a girl and I liked it…” song Sounds innocent enough?
Jessica Simpson’s father was on staff at a SBC church in TX, but is proud of her achievements…
Britney Spears was raised in a Baptist home where she professed Christ and at 18 vowed to keep her virginity until she was married…
However, in reality, less than 10% of the US population are…
THREE out of FOUR
We must be prayerful in sharing the gospel…we MUST NOT depend on our own strength, but on the power of the Holy Spirit…
“I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of salvation…” Rom 1:16
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses…” Acts 1:8
Can you be a child of God without making Jesus Lord of your life…?
…the answer is an EMPHATIC…
in the power of the Holy Spirit, you have to actually
the plan of salvation…
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard…?
“…And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?...faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” Rom. 10:13-15, 17
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
In Christianity Today, Billy Graham once told a statistic that over 88% of the people in church are not saved…
Does that statistic sound right?
Based on what is going on in our churches, it is truly possible!
However, the danger in our culture is that many people have not truly had a heart transplant…
Matt. 7:21, 23
”My religion is between me and my God”
“My religion is very private and I am not going to force it on anyone…”
When they begin to say things like this, tell them you are a student of the Bible and want to know which parts of the Bible are not correct?
“In its pages we find guidance, comfort and the stories of God….”
You want to engage them in conversation and show them the truths of the Bible as often as possible…
…do this prayerfully and with love!
“Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels…
2 Timothy 2:23
…the god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel…”
2 Corinthians 4:4
Remember, we cannot debate them to Christ!
“People do not care how much you know, until they know how much you care…!”
Share your personal testimony.
Make it NO longer than 2 minutes!!
The purpose of this video segment is to show how spiritual conversations can go…learn to be a good listener…
These are not limited to people
the memberships of churches…
Marx said “…religion is the opiate of the masses.”
Darwin made famous the “theory of evolution” which excludes the work of the Creator God
Freud said, “…religion is merely an illusion that would eventually pass away.”
“…their basic philosophy is that it makes many people believe the mess (evil) the world is in is due to this belief system of religion.”
“In your opinion…” FAITH
“If you are standing before God…” EE
We need to tell them that we are sorry for the way some church-goers act. “Please do not hate God or the church because of people…”
One more final question most atheists/humanists, etc. will probably ask; it concerns the problem of evil:
If God is a loving, good, all powerful God, why did He create evil or let evil happen, (such as the Holocaust)?
God created man as free moral agents…they have ability to
or “Choose evil.”
Moral evil finds its remedy in the perfect obedience of the life of Jesus and His death on behalf of those who believe in Him for the payment of sin.
Remember, God is in the business of miracles…trust Him!
Trust Him in His timing and in His grace…
