  • 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.

November Praise Report

CCN exists to train up its students to go out and share the gospel.  This month one of the Pitt students shared the gospel with another Pitt student.   The new college student at Pitt joined us at Bible Study.  He was headed home for Thanksgiving later that day and could not wait to ask his Grandmother for a Bible.  Jen asked him if he wanted one and he did and so Jen gave him a Bible.  He was so excited about joining us for Bible Study that we are going to have Bible Study the week of finals.  Pray that he reads his Bible the entire way home to Philadelphia.

Jen finished teaching through John Frames book "Apologetics to the Glory of God."  We learned all about Presuppositional Apologetics.   The students now know how to show others that Christianity true because it resembles reality.  We learned about many different ways to show that the God of the Bible and specifically Chrisitan God is the only logical God.  The students discovered that you cannot have logic or morality outside of the Christian Worldview.  It was powerful to show the students that all other world views do not have legs to stand on.

The NYC Campuses ministered at an abortion clinic in their area.  Here is a picture of Diane pleading with those that are going inside.


The MCCC Campus went out proclaiming repentance and faith in Jesus Christ in Pottstown this month as they always do.  Here is Andre preaching the good news to people waiting at the local bus stop.

Tim at Tidewater Community College had many great conversations on his campus about the Gospel.  


Some of Tim's students came out and shared the gospel several times this month.  They helped hand out Evolution vs God DVD's as well and hand out tracts on other days.  It is so exciting to see the students going out and sharing their faith.

We  handed out tracts at the Christmas Parade in downtown Pittsburgh.  We handed out Christmas Postcards at this parade.  The Christmas postcards were very easy to handout.  We handed out the same tract last year.  People were very excited to recieve the tract.

Each week we are able to speak to many students about the gospel on the campuses.    This month Jen had several second conversations with people.  A young man named Ben who is a Buddhist came up to talk with Jen a second time.  Jen had talked to him about a month ago and then this past week he walked right up to Jen so they could talk some more.  It was a great second conversation.  They talked about the fact that if it was natural for people to die then why was it so upsetting that they died.  Jen explained to him that we were wired to live forever and not meant to die.  We were made in God's image.  He really understood and said that resinated with him.  Pray for Ben.


Bible Study is going great in Cincinnati.  We are so excited to have Ryan teaching there.  He does during his outreaches.  It is great to be able to hear many of the conversations that he has witnessing with students. 


Thank you so much for your support!
