Witnessing to the Closed-Minded (2)

George Stiekes Part 1 is here. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 11:15; 13:9; 13:43 Not everyone can hear. The verb "to hear" in the text indicates both hearing and understanding. It is important to understand that when you share Christ with the unsaved there are some who hear your words […]

Witnessing to the Closed Minded (1)

George Stiekes He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 11:15; 13:9; 13:43 The “hearing” goes beyond the sense of hearing physically and implies an inner spiritual reception of truth. It is interesting that in Matthew 13, the word “hear” is used nineteen times. This is so very important because Faith cometh by […]

The Blood of Their Witness

Chuck Phelps Endurance is the theme of Hebrews 12. (See vv. 1, 2, 3, 7, 12, and 20.) In order to encourage the Hebrew believers to “endure,” the author declares, “Ye have not yet resisted unto blood striving against sin” (Heb. 12:4). Because the battle for faithfulness is a battle fought in every era by […]

Leong, A Man Without A Language

Bob McLain I have been a communicator all my life. Not only have I been a communicator of the gospel at home and on the mission field, but I speak through the marvels of sign language to the deaf. Through all this, never have I been so burdened and bewildered at how to communicate as […]

Evangelism and Discipleship as a Way of LIFE

Paul Warf Today a new way of thinking has emerged. Our world has undergone a cultural earthquake due to the rise of postmodern culture and ideas. Most postmoderns are not going to be impressed with only our verbal presentations of the gospel. What is needed is a people who live out the gospel in transparent, […]

Creating a Culture of Evangelism

Mike Sproul The culture of a New Testament church must focus on evangelism and discipleship. Every organization, including churches, has an often nonverbalized set of cultural values. I fear many churches have cultures that encourage many good Christian activities but do not have a culture that encourages evangelism. A culture of evangelism and discipleship is […]

The Historical Credibility of the New Testament, Part 3

David Potter Part One ♦ Part Two ♦ This is Part Three In parts one and two of this series, I introduced you to Diane, a Mormon who had become convinced that the Book of Mormon was false. She was also ready to believe the same of the New Testament since the Mormon Church had […]

Evangelism by Phone

Kristi Davis I was challenged a couple of years ago by a book I read on evangelism. My lack of concern for the lost troubled me. True, I always had a measure of concern for friends and family but I do not recall having any concern or action towards strangers. Stirred by the words I […]

Witnessing with Tracts

Ruth Bumgardner I trusted Christ as my Savior at the age of 29 after reading the Bible for nearly two years. Now, as I approach the age of 53, I look back and sadly reflect that in my whole lifetime I received only one gospel tract, and that from a 16-year-old boy only three years […]

Compassion Makes a Difference

Walter G. Fremont I was on my way to the dentist on a hot summer day. Driving in air-conditioned comfort, I passed a grandmotherly looking woman standing by an older car with a flat tire. I felt pity for her, but I had only ten minutes to spare and a meeting after my dental appointment. […]
