Yes ... Why can't you try the only salvation there is.. Its worth giving a try....
---mieke3655 on 9/16/11


No. Instead I would say, "Accept Jesus, otherwise you will die in your sins."
---Eloy on 8/22/11


Donna5535 its wondeful you are concerned with what you can say to lead people to Jesus. Keep it all positive and tell them how much God loves them that he gave the only son he ever had to die for our sins. All one has to do is ask forgiveness for their sins,live for God,and one day you will be in heaven with God. Then offer to lead them in a prayer of repentance. Don't have a standard form for everyone though. Do rely on the Holy Spirit to help you find the right words to say. Remember how the Bible tells those brought up before a judge God would give them the answers they needed.

Donna5535...You don't as you would say"give Jesus a chance".
1 Cor.1:30 says it is Because of God that you are in Christ.
Why would you not just tell them the "Good news" of how Jesus paid the penelty for their sins(all of them)and that by trusting in Him you receive forgiveness of sins.
---JIM on 8/19/11


Agreed, Scott.

Bless you
---James_L on 8/18/11




James, I agree but non-christians do not have another life. This life on earth is all that they know. Everyone has faith in something. The default faith is in job, money, sports team, etc. not God.

One thing about your statement I would change is life, money, etc means nothing. I would say life, money, etc means a lot when used for God. Take the shrewed manager story. We are supposed to be the shrewed manager using the tools God gives us.
---Scott1 on 8/18/11


Scott1,

What changed the lives of those people was a new hope of a new destination. After believing God and being justified, their outlook on this life changed because they counted this life as nothing. Trials meant nothing, death meant nothing, money meant nothing. That's not the promise people are hawking today

People are offering a change in this life's circumstances as the "good news" that Jesus offers.

And that is infomercial Christianity
---James_L on 8/15/11


It comes from the people who's "gospel" message is 'Come To Jesus, He Can Change Your Life'

But it changed Peter's Paul/Saul, Gideon, Moses, Abraham, Elijah, Rahab, Zacchaesus, people Jesus healed, the outcast Samaritian woman at the well just to name a few. Kingdom of God is NOW not later. Luke 17 20,21
---Scott1 on 8/15/11


How is everyone doing? Hope all is well!

No, how can I tell someone, you can go back to he who does not own you?
In short saying, go to hell. Would you say this to anyone?

Joh_16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Is there anything that does not belong to God?
Even you, all of you! Even if you dont know it or believe it.
Yes, its hard to believe.

1Co_6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1Co_7:23 Ye are bought with a price, be not ye the servants of men.
Peace.
---TheSeg on 8/15/11


Unfortunately, I've heard this pitiful pitch.

It comes from the people who's "gospel" message is 'Come To Jesus, He Can Change Your Life'

Infomercial Chrisianity is a false Christianity. Watch any infomercial, they all promise to change your life. Real estate, hair implants, weight loss plans, even vacuum cleaners.

If all He can do is change this life, He is no better than a vacuum cleaner

Too many people are having a life-changing experience without a destination-changing experience.

"Lord, Lord, didn't we do many wonderful works in Your name?"

Then He will answer "Depart from me, I never Knew you"
---James_L on 8/14/11




When walking in the Spirit of the Lord only God will tell you what to do or say. So let he spirit of the Lord guide you each and everyday. The question then becomes the answer Is its Gods Will that you say this? God Bless You and all that you do!
---Chris on 8/14/11


IT'S BLASPHEMY!

Jesus is NOT for sale ever!!!

He never said a word to convince or chased after any who refused Him. He even spoke in such parables so they would NOT understand.

This is also Blasphemy(I susupect you were exposed to this Heresy)

Making a "Decision" for Jesus. Means YOU Approve of Jesus. SICK!

Christ is not some bitter medicine you need to add sugar to so people will eat it(Rock, Deceptive Tracks, Preying on the desperate like a cheap lowlife salesman).

Also we are not witnesses, since the word means witness of an event. We weren't there.

G-d does not have need of you to save anyone. You have need of Him to use you if he so graces/blesses you.
Understand 2Sam6:6
---John on 8/13/11


No I would NOT say this. 1st it is NOT Biblical at all, and 2nd it makes them treat Jesus as a drug or something that they must try, and then they come to Jesus without any repentance and backslide right away. This only creates FALSE converts and NOT real followers.
---Leslie on 8/13/11


guilt trips and other kitschy words hidden in christianity are the opposite of what Jesus Christ has to offer.

christ is a body with its mouth in proportion to the rest of the body. modern christianity is just a big mouth with avery little body.
---aka on 8/13/11


I think this is wrong. We need to lead people to Christ, not force them to accept Him.
as I have been told over and over, we plant the seed and God does the rest.
Telling people they will go to hell is too scary.

the not satisfied money back closule, should not be promoted.

Donna5535, while it sounds nice to say those things to someone who is lost, but it is not biblical at all. Christians do not believe in, chance, fate, or luck. Believers believe by faith. If you say "take a chance" you are working under the power of chance and not faith.
Second, what Reba said is very true. You do not have to sugar code the Truth. The Truth is the Truth. It needs no added things to make it Truth. Tell them the Truth for God's Word accomplishes that for which He sends it. If it does not cause the person to believe, it is because God has not granted them faith through the Word. The one who does believe, believes because the Word came to him in power.
---Mark_V. on 8/13/11


Somebody already thought of something very close to this:
Psalms 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
---Bruce5656 on 8/12/11


This "sounds" good if you think Jesus needs a little help in the relevance department, or if you think He is a commodity that is being sold. What people really need to hear is that they are sinners and need a Saviour, period! EVERYONE will one day bow down and acknowledge Him as Lord and King, whether they want to or not.
---tommy3007 on 8/12/11


A person must feel the need for Christ before they can,(as you put it)"give Him a chance". The Holy Spirit MUST be drawing them to come to Christ. If we persuade people to give Christ a chance without the leading of the Holy Spirit, then more than likely they will turn back to satan because their conversion would be nothing more than turning over a new leaf. No one can be saved on their own, The Holy Spirit must be there drawing.
