Articles in Evangelism
Kirk Cameron sat down with CNN’s Piers Morgan last Friday and they discussed about Marriage, Homosexuality, and abortion. It drew so much attention on the media, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, internet blogs, Youtube, and other discussion sites. I support Kirk Cameron’s stand and I admire him for putting a brave face in making his stand known in prime time television.
Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus is a poem written to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion by Jefferson Bethke. He emphasized that in the scriptures, Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day and at it’s core Jesus’ gospel and the Good News of the Cross is in pure opposition to self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus is God-centered.
Do you know the reasons why some people don’t go to church? Of course you do and you can’t think of the tiniest to the major reasons. There are several reasons but the most common reasons are presented on this clip. Just to put things straight, going to Church or joining a particular religion does not give us eternal salvation, but more on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ when put our trust in Him as our Lord and savior.
Church is not the four wall building but it’s a community of Christian believers doing life together.
As Christians, we are expected to share the Good News. We are ambassadors of Christ sharing the Gospel to the hostile world. Jesus said in Matthew 28: “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Sometimes we are easily caught up of endless activities and not taking our message beyond to four walls of our Churches.
We often read or hear people say “pray for the soul of so and so that he/she may rest in peace.” Can we do it really? Is there such thing as praying for the dead so his/her soul will go to heaven? Would this be false hope given that God give us free will to choose to follow Him or not while we are alive?
Dr Charles Stanley discusses this burning question based on the Bible. Pay attention because this a matter of life and death.
Meet the “Street Evangelist” of Melbourne. Sorry, I forgot his name but I remember his smiling face. Unlike other evangelist out there, he does not use his mouth but rather, his creative paintings. He paints and displays his works of art right in front of pedestrians, passers-by, and tourists right in front of the Flinders Station in Melbourne!
He creates Jesus (in his painting) and get Jesus to speak to people and proclaim the good news!
It is undeniable and with certainty that we all die. We just don’t know when. But what really happens when we die? What’s next after our life on earth ends?
Here is a short clip from PeacewithGod.net. It provides a clear idea on what’s ahead when we die.
