What method of evangelism did you use and how did you start the conversation?
The method of evangelism that I used for my witness report was the “Four Spiritual Laws.” I chose this method because it is simple straight to the point, and has facts that I believe cannot be disputed. It is also quick and simple to explain. How I started the conversation was simple actually, for a while one of my family members has been confused about if there is a god or not and the last time I came home we spoke about what I have learned down at Liberty. Thus I thought it would be a good idea to bring up what I learned during these past few weeks from this class. of course what I have learned from this class are different ways to evangelize and that is how the conversation started.
What was the reaction (comments/questions/statements) of the unbeliever?
The particular family member that I was witnessing to I knew for a fact was going to be stubborn at my approach. My family member asked me about what I have learned in evangelism, and I told them about certain approaches to how those can reach salvation. From there I introduced the “Four Spiritual Truths” method that I say would happen to very effective if implemented properly. I said , “The four laws are: God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life, Man is sinful and separated from God, Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin, We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.” Of course I received an uneasy response at first. i was questioned to why do I have to accept Jesus as my savior in order to be saved, why can’t it be that I can’t just be a good person to get into heaven. Of course I answered that with, “God wants us to be perfect holy beings in his presence, and without accepting Jesus, we cannot reach eternal life or salvation.” Again I was questioned to the fact of do we need Jesus. My family member believes that Jesus was not a sinless man, he believes that the trinity is completely untrue and illogical and that the Bible was written by men not by God. He does not deny that there is a deity among us, he just denies that it is the God the Christianity idolizes. For me as a new Christian, it is hard for me to exactly explain everything since I am still learning as well thus for many of the answers to his question I could not...
