  • 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.

Happy New Year

This past year was a strange year.  We are not having issues sharing the gospel on the college campuses but if we invite people to Bible Study even if it is off the campus we are having troubles on more than one campus.  This is an odd twist on things.  Please pray for favor on all of our campuses that we can share the gospel and invite people to Bible Study.  The reason the campuses state is different on each campus but the result is the same.

The holidays bring many events that gather people we can share the gospel with.  There are often people hanging out downtown due to the holidays.  Here is Ryan and his group that went out and shared the Biggest Question DVD.

Our Campus Leaders are often asked to teach people how to go and share the gospel. Andre and Cliff took 6 weeks to train up a large group from a church, on how to share the gospel and defend the Christian faith. Here you can see the group just before they go out to share the gospel.

Our Campus Leaders enjoy going to other campuses to share the gospel.  Jen went to Penn State this month and was able to handout thousands of Christmas tracts and start gospel conversations with people.

Please continue to pray for CCN and its leaders.
