I try to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ as often as I can. Sometimes I go out onto my local college campus. The students are always pretty willing to share what they believe and even willing to listen to what the Bible has to say. On this page are a few examples of my witnessing encounters.

"How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!'" - Romans 10:14-15

Please Share the Gospel with those around you.

Are You a Good Person?
Here is a simple conversation I had with someone. I was rushed for time but I got the basics of the Gospel out there for him to read. This is a model for sharing the Gospel that Living Waters uses. I try to base my witnessing on this converstaion.

I talked to a girl named Destiny. She knew the Gospel and her father was a pastor, but she hadn't truly repented of her sins.

Witnessing to a Homosexual
Here is a conversation I had with a gay guy. Notice I was gentle with him and at least at first I completely ignored that he was gay. Homosexuality is a sin but it is no greater than any other sin. I think that is something Christians forget. The only reference to his name I caught was Ntmy.

This is a conversation I had with an atheist named Nikolaj. To share the Gospel with him I ignored his question about proof. There is a place for apologetics, but giving evidence for God's existance will not save anyone. When you share the Gospel, it's helpful to bypass the skeptic's questions (unless they are truly looking for an answer) and focus on their heart. Romans says that everyone knows God exists so when sharing the Gospel you can start with that assumption as well.

Here is a discussion I had with an atheist that did not go very well. Instead of going straight into the Gospel, I deviated into evidence for God. The belief in absolute morality is a strong evidence for the existance of God. If something is always wrong then there are moal absolutes so there must be an absolute moral law giver. The problem is that even if you do provide evidence for God, that will not make someone believe in Him.

This conversation was with a girl named Esther who thought she was a Christian, but never made the decision to follow Christ. She had a lot of practical spiritual questions to ask and I think God was really working on her heart. It's really neat to see someone who really doesn't know the deep things of God start to understand them.
