I believe in God but... don't talk about him.
Christian faith is: Centripetal and Centrifugal.
It calls us in and sends us out.
When you don't want us urging our religion onto you, you are urging your religion on us.
Evangel from evangelism means the gospel.
Gospel means news of an objective history changing event that you need to respond to.
The hope is you come to being a christian because you believe it's true.
Keys to evangelism:
1. Loving people around you.
2. Courageously transparent about what Jesus means to you.
It takes courage go tell others about Jesus.
The word witness means to be a martyr.
Things we need to understand:
1. Our need for a mission.
Mission means: when your comfort, your safety, your freedom, is sacrificed for the cause.
Todays world says: You are here to find a dream and fulfill it.
2. Knowing what the purpose of the mission is.
Our mission is to convince the world of Jesus Christ's mission.
There is a balance, you must not be of the world but, you must not be out of the world.
We are either too much like the world or we are too separated from it.
We are in the life saving mission as Christians.
