He who listens to you listens to Me; he who rejects you rejects Me; but he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me. (Luke 10:16)

Avoid The Confusion And Share The Gospel

As one who’s been in the ministries of apologetics and countercult evangelism for over twenty years I can tell you from firsthand experience that Satan’s strategy in the Kingdom of the Cults is to try and get us to focus on peripheral issues, things not central to mankind’s salvation, changing subjects so often that we forget what it is that we started out to talk about. You may have heard me refer to it here at Apprising Ministries as wrestling with the snake.

I’m sure some of you who have tried to witness to Mormon relatives, friends, or missionaries, know exactly what I am talking about. Whenever you plan to share Jesus with someone of another religious faith always be sure what topic(s) you wish to cover when you set out and then keep the person to whatever subject you might feel led of the Lord to introduce until you feel you it has been adequately covered.

And it’s important for you to understand that as a Christian, when you witness as a child of God and a disciple of Jesus Christ, you have the authority to speak for God and not the unbeliever. If you do your best to be polite, respecting the other person’s beliefs, then it is perfectly fine for you to “take charge” of the witnessing encounter. Today’s culture, which is so centered on the self—as well as so many in postevangelicalism and the Emerging Church—confuse a basic issue.

Again here’s the influence of the enemy of men’s souls and his doomed forces. While everyone most certainly has the right to their opinion not every opinion is of equal value. By this I mean, in the case let’s say of someone of the LDS faith, no doubt a person’s beliefs are important to them. However they are wrong, for example, when it comes to Who Jesus is. And remember now, if you are wrong about His Gospel and Who Christ is then you are wrong for all eternity.

Let’s not forget that in actuality you are doing these people a favor, as it were, to bring the Gospel message to them, without which we’d all be lost. And listen to the truth of the Word of God concerning our testimony in opening text where Jesus says — He who listens to you listens to Me; he who rejects you rejects Me; but he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me. And also remember — We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us (2 Corinthians 5:20).

And child of God that’s the authority with which we witness as His Christians — not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the [Holy] Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words (1 Corinthians 2:13). So don’t you ever be intimidated in your witness for Jesus Christ.
