CCN helps the spiritually blind see the truth of God's Word. We have spent the month sharing the gospel and training people up to go out and do the same.
CCN Family Sharing the Gospel
At the Light up the square outreach in Cincinnati the crowd was at least half of the normal size for the outreach. A CCN Campus Leaders daughter was a great helper though the outrach and handed out lots of tracts! She was a bit tired afterwards. At CCN many times our families are just as onfire as our Campus Leaders.
Students Learning About Biblical Christianity
At MCCC Cliff taught on "What makes a Group Non-Christian" with Anna and Cynthia. In this day and age it is important to heed the words of the apostle Paul in 1 Thess.5:21. Folks these are great CCN lessons. They not only are very informative but can help you swing ANY conversation into a gospel presentation.
Long Important Conversations about Faith
We talked to lots of people on the campuses in Nov. My favorite conversation this month was with a young man at SRU. He goes to a Bible study but told me that he was having issues with his faith. He told me that he was having issues with his sin. His issue with sin turned out to be due to his lack of belief; he was not sure he could believe in Jesus being God and the only way. I spent a hour with him showing him how I had zero doubts that Jesus was the one true God and that there was a God.
I first started with the good person test. I wanted to make sure that he had heard the gospel. He wanted clarity about how forgiveness worked. I explained that he would still sin and would not be perfect until he died. I explained that the difference was jumping into a pool of sin or fighting against sin and not going places where he would be tempted. He need to fight against sin. This lead to a conversation about not being able to fight sin or not wanting to fight sin because he really did not believe.
I showed him that there was no way that he could use logic to argue against me unless there was an absolute God. Logic is immaterial, unchanging and always existed. It would be impossible for logic to exist if everything was material, created, and random.
I showed him that he could not use science to argue against me unless God created everything. Science relies on God. If everything comes from random chance over time then things can change over time and so you cannot test things over and over again and expect the same result because they should change randomly. Science teachers at the local school here in Shaler are actually teaching that there are no laws of Science, and they have this issue due to their world view.
Science is also based on observing, repeating and someone else confirming your results. Who observed millions of years? No one did. Who repeated the test confirming millions of years? No one. Who observed the Big Bang? No one did. Who tested the Big Bang and did it over again and confirmed the results? No one did. Who witnessed evolution? No one did!
Who witness the creation of the world? God witnessed creation. He wrote it down in a history book called the Bible. God created the world in 6 days.
He went on arguing with me. I put down 4 leaves on the ground right in a row and I asked him if he came up to them would he say "Wow that happened randomly!" or would he wonder "Why did someone put them in that order?" He said he would wonder why they were put in that order. I told him his DNA was way more complex than a few leaves. Why would he believe that his DNA would form any differently?
I asked him if he has ever gone to the library and asked for all the books that were created by random natural processes. He smiled. I told him there were none. Information creation requires an creator. I tried to explain to him about putting random data into a database and how much use it would be but he did not understand the reference.
We talked about the fact of morals and many other topics.
He kept going and I told him he was a like a man trying to argue against the fact of air while he was breathing it in and using it in his voice box to make sounds for his argument. You are using logic that you can only have if there is a an absolute God, to say that there is no God.
The conversation ended with a hug and a grateful hand shake. Please pray for this young man!
Sharing the gospel with everyone!
The "Good Person Test" shows people their need for the Savior, even a Pastor's daughter!
