I was tempted to join an atheist forum just recently because [reading between the lines] I could see that these particular folks were actually hoping that they were wrong and jokingly stated that no Christian would ever come on to their forum because they spent more time defending their theology and less time listening to what people were actually saying. Sad but true in some cases.I do most of my work online in forums. I have done a lot of chat room work also. I believe i have helped a lot of people on their way. But me seeing someone brought to believe Jesus has been a very rare event for me. Often it seem to me that most posters on forum have already made up their minds on Jesus.
On the athiest forums i go to most of the posters appear to be on an anti-christian crusade. But i live in hope that i can plant a seed or two inside them that may take effect later. Also i am always mindful that most people who are unsure or are not firmly set in their minds about God. These people visit forums and read what is said without ever posting anything themselves. They are the ones i feel most hope for when in athiest forums.
Amen! In my previous forum [which no-longer exists] I was mindful of the guests more than the members as I knew that they were in reality...the main target audience, many perhaps in need of some straight up answers about God.Same goes for theist based forums like this. Many posters have their minds set on what they believe about God And they more focused on giving the message they believe at the expense of listening to what others have to say. So hear again it is the people in the background who are reading on but who may never post that are my greatest focus/hope.
I have never gone out to pass tracts, or go looking for people to get saved. However I have managed to lead many of my family members and work mates to Christ.What are your experiences with sharing the Gospel?
My friend and I went out yesterday and spoke to random people at a garden near place. We led one person to Christ. Others were really touched and would probably come to our Church. It was a great experience. We realized that we need a good prayer support people backing us if we are to do it again.
What are your experiences? I am hoping to learn from you all.
Hey Jim!Evangelism is 100% successful.When we lead someone to Christ we are successful. When we plant the seed we are successful. When we are rejected read Luke 6;22,23 Matt 5;10,11.
Whoo! Skinbracer time! Oops, just dated myself there."The difference is here's someone tremblingbecause he's gonna be hurt in hell![BUT] he has no sense of the enormity of his guilt and no sense of the enormity of his crimes and no sense of his insult against Deity!"
