Scott I believe your statement,"The best evangelism is to know someone not asking questions like "Where will you go when you die" to be the cold water of failure. In other words this attitude is exactly what is wrong with most programs attempting to teach evangelism.

The best evangelism is to know someone not asking questions like "Where will you go when you die" I suggest reading Bill Hybels "Walk across the room"
---Scott on 2/18/11

There are many various views on how best to share God's word, just as there are many interpretations of his word. I just hope that all of you proclaiming Christ have blessed and fruitful experiences! We must build each other up because each of us is a part of the same body of Christ, and by encouraging each other, we push forth God's kingdom. There may be different styles and tactics for evangelizing, but I trust that you sons and daughters are doing it to honor God, thus even if it occasionally doesn't seem to "work", it is all for his glory.

If you were to die today, do you think you'd go to heaven? If they say "Yes," Ask them why they believe that. If they don't say because Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and no one goes to the Father but by me. Jesus is the way, that's the answer. If they don't say that, then tell them the truth. Don't let them try to reason it out with you, JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN.

Mama, Mima, you're taking credit for percentages of God's harvest. You've told us so many things about yourself. Interrupting speakers, why the whole world stopped spinning and everyone listened. Why not let the Holy Spirit be in charge and let Him fill your mouth, at the moment you need it. Canned questions grow stale, and we know the Holy Spirit is not.

You will know if a person is saved or not by their fruits and nothing else. In the Bible people didn't turn to Christ by saying a prayer. They turned to Christ by making a decision to follow Him in faith and repentance.
---Matthew on 3/15/07

Hi Catherine, I'm doing very well.
Mima: your appologetics holds about as much water as a colander. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. I'm sure that most of the apostles and disciples never even saw the increase of thier influence. I don't keep score, I plant seed.
---Chipper on 3/15/07

That was not very Nice! How are you doing Chipper?
---catherine on 3/14/07

Hi Mima; interesting point you made, but I can't help but think: the human heart is not soil; it's compared to soil but only God can do the work of salvation; we can plant and water all we want but it's between God and the individual.
---Mary on 3/14/07

To ---Chipper I believe you have the spirit of evangelism. I do not believe you know how to evangelize. Therefore you are in a state of confusion. In order to rationalize this, you must continue to talk about planning seeds, otherwise you would have to face up to the fact that you're not having results as concerns evangelizing. If you saw a farmer who was always planning seeds and never harvesting, you would say that man dors not understand without the harvest there is no completion, no result.
---Mima on 3/14/07

Mima: Your comment about keeping score shows a lot of arrogance on your part. We are supposed to be faithful witnesses. That is all. I see little humility in your post.
---Madison1101 on 3/14/07

Mima: I mean no disrespect to you but I don't think we are to carry score cards around when we tell someone about the plan of salvation. We are to plant the seed and let God do the growing.
We have no idea the impact we may have on those around us. We may not see the results for a long time, if ever in this life.
---Chipper on 3/13/07

---Chipper----my suggestion to you is check your success rate.----recently I heard of a person who has been "spreading" Jesus for eight years but has seen no conversions. I know of a missionary 13 years in the field without any conversions. I know of another set of missionaries who've had one conversion in 15 years. To all this I say ridiculous. My method may not be the right method but it obviously is a different method than the ones these people are using.
---Mima on 3/13/07

The only time I might use trappy words is, If someone keeps telling me how many times they go to church. Bible studies they are attending, ect. And oh yes, I am saved. So I ask them, "What is your testamony of your salvation?" Seems like I just trapped them.
---catherine on 3/13/07

Maybe the best way to evangelize is not to try and convince or ask trapping questions but to simply tell people what the Lord has done for you and how He changed your life.
Quoting scriptures and trying to force God on someone is not letting the Holy Spirit work with them. Ask them if you could share the Bible with them.
Sometimes it takes months or even years to win someone to the Lord.
---Chipper on 3/11/07

Part 1-- To Bettie--- you desire a good thing. And all good evangelistic witnessing starts with prayer a prayer(or petition) made in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. When people ask me what I did to become a witness I tell them I had a desire but I couldn't control my emotions and was actually crying as much as the people that I was witnessing too. Realizing my problem, I ask the Lord to give me a burden for lost souls, he gave me a burden and immediately my percentages started to soar.

Part 2-- after being given a burden I begin to review each attempt at witnessing. And I began to understand that an "arresting question" was what was needed to get the attention of the person you're witnessing to. After the arresting question you're looking and waiting for the conviction of the Holy Spirit to fall on the person you're witnessing to, experience will teach you when this happens.
---Mima on 3/11/07

Part--3-- a good question can be," do you think he will go to heaven when you die" regardless of their answer your next question should be why? This can open up a exchange with them. If you want I can send you an outline by e-mail. You can contact me, I am my mima 3783 at Penpals.
---Mima on 3/11/07

Hi y'all; I just want to say, I once was part of a Bible college experiment, going in teams from door to door, asking people the "why should I let you into Heaven" question--and one woman I will never forget burst into tears and said her son had just died! All we did was cause her pain; we did not minister, something I will always regret.
---Mary on 3/10/07

Jack is absolutely correct. Evangelism is not something we can put into simple "Bible-babble" questions, or some type of man-made systems. Evangelism will work the way it has always worked, under the direction of God. God does not fit inside a box and neither do His ways. Thank you Jack for pointing out how rediculous my question is.

When my daughter was involved with Campus Crusade for Christ, they used a pamphlet called "The Four Spiritual Laws." They did a lot of beach evangelism during college Spring breaks, and they would go up to people and ask "Have you heard of the four spiritual laws?" and then dialogue with the person, if they showed interest. The pamphlet explains the plan of salvation clearly.
---Madison1101 on 3/10/07

** Ask them what resurrection they think they are going to be a part of.**

This is EXACTLY the kind of Bible-babble that most people will find either puzzling or irritating.
---Jack on 3/10/07

---donna6598 is correct and understands what evangelism is. Many people fail to understand evangelism because I have trouble believing in their own salvation. Experience is shown me that people who doubt their own salvation(is always iffy) cannot make a soulwinning evangelist. Another words they cannot offer any security to a believer because they themselves have no security.
---Mima on 3/10/07

evangelism-- The first thing is to be sure that God is with you. And for goodness sakes wait on His power to come upon you or whatever comes out of your mouth will be weak and do no good. Speak only the words that God gives you. Do only what God tells you to do. Really the best teacher is God Himself.Also this is a great calling, so make sure that you are called for this kind of work.

I think asking them what they think the purpose of their life is so you get their thinking abut it. Then talk about God's purpose for them.
---Virginia on 3/10/07

Most people, including myself, would find such questions annoying.

Evangelism is not forcing someone to make a quick decision for Jesus RIGHT NOW!
---Jack on 3/9/07

Ask them what resurrection they think they are going to be a part of. If they have no idea what you are talking about than it is a wonderful opportunity to share in the joy and hope that those in Christ Jesus have in a reusrrection to be with Him in eternity.
---Ryan on 3/9/07

Bettie.....Both of you should need to stay focused in Gods word.The Holy Spirit will lead you.
