  • Sharing the Gospel with Muslims

    We have shared the gospel with many Muslims.  I do not think there was a day that I went out witnessing this month where I was not able to share the gospel with at least one Muslim.  When talking to Muslims there are several stumbling blocks that I run into almost every time I share the gospel with those that follow Islam.  

    1. They believe that God is merciful and not just.  They think that as long as they believe in the correct God and repent well enough that they will go to heaven.  They do not see the need for a payment for their wrong doing.
    2. They do not think Jesus is God.
    3. They believe that the only sin that cannot before given is believing God is 3 in
    4. They believe the Bible has been changed.

    I did have one very good conversation where the young man seemed to receive what I said.  The picture is of Muhammad.  

    He listened to me explain the dual nature of Jesus and thanked me for my explanation. He said he never heard it explained like that. He allowed me to explain how God is Just and that we can only go to heaven if God pays the fine since we owe an eternal fine. Please pray for him. He asked honest questions and was satisfied with the answers I gave and took information from me to read later.

    Pray for Luke. He wanted to know why he could not just be sorry for the bad things he did and not do them again. He wanted to know why he needed Jesus.

    I gave him the example of him Standing in a court room. The judge says he is guilty. He tells the judge that he is sorry and will never do it again. The judge tells him that he should be sorry and he should not do it again. But he has to pay the fine.

    Someone runs into the court and says that they will pay the fine. The is what Jesus does on the cross. Jesus paid the fine we must repent and trust Jesus.

    He said he was glad he stopped and had a conversation and asked the question. 

    I ran into him about 2 weeks later and we continued our conversation.  We talked about how we could know that there is a God.  He wanted scientific evidence for God.  I explained that Science is the study of the material world.  God is immaterial and outside of time and space so that is an impossibility.  I showed him that there had to be a God to create everything because if there was every nothing then there could never not be nothing.  Nothing is the thing that rocks dream about and it cannot create anything.  Pray for young Luke.

    We had some great Bible Studies this month.  We have been talking about the parables in the SRU Bible Studies.  Here is Matt teaching on the parable of the landowner.

Changing lives on the college campuses!

Jen asked this young man if he had a question about God and he said no.  So she asked him if she could ask him a question.  She asked him if he died today if he would go to heaven or hell.  He said that he would go to heaven.  Jen walked him through a few of the 10 commandments to show him that he was guilty.  He said that he believed in karma and did not believe in heaven or hell.  Jen told him, Karma says you have to pay for your sins and it makes sense you would end up in hell.  He agreed and did not want to go to hell.  Jen told him to imagine he stood before a judge and the judge said you either have to pay a million dollar fine or go to prison.  A person runs in and says I love you so much that I will pay your fine.  Would that be good news?  He said it would be good news.  Jen explained that Jesus is the one that paid the fine.  Jen asked him what he thought about all that she had told him.  He said he needed a Bible.  She asked him to watch her stuff so and went to her car can got him and his friend a Bible.    Please pray for him.

Eric and Ryan have been using the IQ test on the campus to start gospel conversations with the students. Recently, a student (Trevor) came by and after going through the IQ test they asked him if he thought he was good enough to get to Heaven when he died. He said no which is uncommon so Ryan asked him why he answered that way and the student answered because only Jesus is good enough to get us to Heaven which is the right answer but not one we often hear.
Ryan decided to probe further into his spiritual background by using the three-minute test. Trevor actually knew the Gospel and was able to articulate it well. Praise God! What began as a witnessing encounter became a time of fellowship and discipleship. Please pray that Ryan and Eric would have more opportunities like this as they minister on the campus.

Here is a picture of a bible study at Montgomery County Community College. Andre the campus leader taught about how to confront sinners with the gospel. We not only witness to students but we invite them to Bible Study and train them up to go and do the same.

After we train up the students to share the gospel we take them out onto the streets so they can use their new knowledge.  When people get saved they need to learn how to share the gospel.  CNN goes out and makes disciples that go out and make disciples.
