A study has shown that most conversations take place in less than three minutes. And it was for this reason that the group I work with came up with what we call the definding question. Here is the question." Are you absolutely, positively, certain sure, no doubt in your mind, that you'd will go to heaven when you die?" This question puts the hearer under conviction by the Holy Spirit. After this question you remain silent and let the hearer give an answer before you continue.

It really depends on who the person is. Some people have heard it so many times that they ignore it so they need a to be shaken. Some feel so condemned by their sins that they need to know of God's grace.(Romans 8:1) By us showing what God has/is doing in our lives, it gives a witness to folks that don't know Christ.

Pastors wife: this is where conviction comes in. Sinners know that they don't have Jesus, because when they see a true child of God, they see light all around them and want to know why/how they are happy, and they begin to ponder/watching on what the child of God are doing and they begin to question themselves, and by then the Holy Ghost is all over them, convicting them of their sins. I know because I was once that sinner.

Often a silent witness is a dead witness. Sharing our faith can be done in many ways. "All who redeemed by YHWH will say, everyone whom he redeemed from the hand of the enemy." Psalm 107:2.

Thank God for that man who accepted Christ just in time. Thank God for your husband, Pastors Wife, who let the light of Christ shine through his life as the Bible says in Matt. 5:16 & cause this poor seaman to reach shore. I love that song " Let the Lower Lights be Burning". How important it is in the days we're living in,to be in a place where the Lord can speak to us & use us by the Holy Spirit..whether by testimony, a kind word or deed. Our lives should always reflect the lifesyle of Christ.

I agree with you. There are MANY sharletons (I know I spelled that wrong) in the pulpit today. That's why I stress the point to pray ernestly and seek God's direction when deciding where one should attend church. Sorry if I misunderstood your opinion about Pastors in general and the IMPORTANCE of belonging to a local body of believers

Now, this man knew he was lost. But as far as you question goes, with most people- we DO need to alert them of their sinful condition- but ALWAYS, with LOVE. How do they know they need a savior if they dont realize they're lost?
---Pastors_wife on 1/20/06

First I praise the Lord for this man's salvation. Next I want to express open appreciation for what your husband has done. Many readers probably believe I'm against pastors, certainly this is not consciously embraced. My greatest area of concern as concerns pastors is the message of salvation and how it is delivered.

pt 2: When the man was diagnosed with cancer, he asked for my husband to come and pray for him. He accepted the Lord Jesus and died a few months later, a Christian. His wife had been "WITNESSING" to him for over 30 years. My husband knew him about 6 months

A woman once attended our church whose husband was unsaved. This woman (who called herself an 'evangelist') constantly badgered him to come to church, get husband started dropping by the gas station where this man worked and would just hang around for a little bit, buy a coke, and just 'shoot the breeze' with the man- never said one word to him about God.

First, they have to see your faith. I'm working on this also. Then you have to form a friendly relationship with them just like Jesus did. He met physical needs 1st then spiritual needs. We are to be held accountable one to another. Tell them with the love of God and your concern. Sometimes, people will be upset before they realize that God/We have they best interest at heart. Then let the Holy Spirit deal with them. You just have to pray and be there for them.

All of God's people have a duty to warn the lost. We can witness in many ways, through word of mouth, actions. the most important thing the sinners see in us is Christ.
---Rebecca_D on 1/18/06

I show them through actions & words. I am not only a "hearer" but a "doer" If I show them something out of place according to the bible, & they see it is wrong, i make sure my whole life follows with the positive examples, because if you're teaching someone, that something isn't right,& you still do it, then what's that goingto do except give a false message?
---canda3996 on 1/18/06

You have to use your mouth. But the words coming out of you mouth are useless if you live a life contrary to the Word of God. How can I being drunk, walk up to another drunk and tell him about the Lord. I would be no different than he. In order to win someone to Christ, they must first know they are lost. Most lost today think they are good enought to go to heaven.
