Last week, I mentioned that I had recently been in three different witnessing conversations. Today, I'll share about my talk with a brilliant young lady named Karen, the second of the three students.
Karen is a Roman Catholic who holds to a pluralistic worldview. I discovered this as I listened to her respond to a question I had posed "What must I do to be saved?" in a pretend scenario where I assumed the role of non-Christian. As Karen explained she drew bits and pieces from the different religions of the world citing how she would answer a Muslim according to their faith, a Jewish person according to his, and so on.
After taking Karen through the moral law, I learned why she didn't view her sins (transgressions of God's Law) as being anything serious.
So, I made it a point to address the issue of idolatry and explained that the reason she felt that God was "cool" with her blaspheming His name was because she had made a god in her mind to suit herself. In other words, I mentioned that her god is a figment of her imagination and therefore doesn't exist.
