A few of you have responded to my last cry for help by interviewing 10 people and asking them two questions: what first comes to mind when you think of the religion of Christianity, and secondly, what first comes to your mind when you think of Jesus of Nazareth. You can vary those questions, use them for your own means, but I want your feedback for the book I’m writing. Please send those in as a response to that last blog or on Facebook – or email them to me.
The next thing I’d like you to help me with is to ask as many of your friends as you want – that go to your church and you know are fairly mature in their faith – these questions:
- How often do you talk about Jesus (in any way) at work with unbelievers in an average week? Tell them to be honest!
- How often have you tried an apologetic approach to sharing your faith and how has that worked on a scale of 1-10 (“10” meaning they have clearly begun to follow Jesus in a Biblical way). The word “apologetic” meaning “defending the faith through rigorous and wise arguments.”
- If you somehow knew that everyone was saved in the end and we would all be in heaven together – no matter what we believed – would you be more or less open about Jesus? Why?
That’s it. Please do help. I need your help. And…..this can help you to think through some things as well. Let’s have fun doing this together!
