The Call to Evangelism

Some people are of the opinion that it is wrong to share our faith with others in our pluralistic world. But Jesus spoke to anyone, Jews, Samaritans, Gentiles, even Romans. Furthermore, Jesus imparts his Spirit to his followers so they can participate with him in the work of the Kingdom of God. God wants people saved from perishing and sent his Son into the world, at great cost, to rescue his people. The task may seem impossible, but the Spirit is with you in waking up those who are asleep in the Kingdom of darkness which I have called Dummy World. The AI generated image to the left is of a dummy coming to life. It didn't make the final cut of the video, so I will make use of it here.

What can I do?

The world has fallen for the lies of the enemy. It is difficult to get through to someone who is coming from a different world view to you. Postmodernism has rejected many of the claims of modernism and that opens a door for Christians to present an alternative to the inevitable nihilism that postmoderns are confronted with. We share a story of what God has done and is still doing. As such, it is not over yet and certainty of the outcome is a certainty of faith in the trustworthiness of God.

Gospel F.A.C.T.S.

Share the Gospel

You don't have to go completely through the whole gospel outline in one session. As you have opportunity, share insights you have learned from the outline. The acronym is for your benefit as a memory aid, not as a script to follow.

Promote the Gospel F.A.C.T.S.

Encourage other Christians to be bold about their faith, by teaching them to use the Gospel F.A.C.T.S. outline. Play the video in Youth Groups and Home Groups and learn to be clear about your faith. Share on social media (see the links on the Home page).
