George Saieg is a Sudanese Christian.  Over a decade ago I’ve witnessed alongside with him and some of the things that Muslims have done to him or attempt to do to him are just crazy.

Here’s a video on more practical pointers on how to witness to a Muslim.

Most of the suggestions are more practical points and cultural awareness.

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few days ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is 2 Corinthians 5:11.  Here’s my translation:

Εἰδότες οὖν τὸν φόβον τοῦ κυρίου ἀνθρώπους πείθομεν
Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord we persuade men

θεῷ δὲ πεφανερώμεθα
and we are manifested to God

ἐλπίζω δὲ ‹+ καὶ ἐν ταῖς συνειδήσεσιν ὑμῶν +› πεφανερῶσθαι”
And I hope also in your conscience to be manifested

Here’s some observation:

Presuppositional Apologetics and Personal Evangelism

Sounds rather ominous, doe it not? Really deep stuff! Well, not necessarily. First, let’s define our terms.

“Presuppositionalism is a school of Christian apologetics that believes the Christian faith is the only basis for rational thought. It presupposes that the Bible is divine revelation and attempts to expose flaws in other worldviews. It claims that apart from presuppositions, one could not make sense of any human experience, and there can be no set of neutral assumptions from which to reason with a non-Christian”.[i]

 “To evangelize is to present Christ Jesus to sinful people in order that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, they may come to put their trust in God through Him.”[ii]

This is a video by Global Frontiers Missions titled “State of the World / The Task Remaining.”

It is an insightful video concerning the task of missions.

It made me have a burden not only for the lost but specifically for in countries that require creative access to those countries and areas to reach the lost.

I am all wired up from evangelizing on the Rose Parade route tonight, its something the folks at my church have been doing for almost 10 years now.  People camp outside and we just set up a table to engage in evangelistic conversation.  Believe it or not there are still people who are willing to stop and listen and hear the Gospel.  We need to pray for those opportunities and present the Gospel clearly and faithfully with both passion and compassion.

Contrary to the theme of the blog, in my evangelism these days I rarely go on apologetics’ rabbit trail when I share the Gospel.  Most of the time I focus on the Gospel being understood by the person I’m talking to.  I am a Presuppositionalist in my apologetics but I think even some within my own camp of apologetics can forget the self-evidencing power of the Gospel.

Tonight I did have someone looking for trouble that came to our evangelism table.  In person, I can tolerate quite a bit of personal attacks on myself; but I have a harder time when someone attack one of my brothers or sisters in the faith who was trying to honestly and humbly share the Gospel to the individual.  Something just irks me.  Most of the time I find that a gentle answer does turn away a lot of wrath but once in a while you have a young hammerhead that just wants to bully Christians.  They assume gentleness is a sign of weakness.  They just love to belittle Christians and show themselves to be morally and intellectually superior than those who are talking to them.  Pharisees are non-denominational and exists in many worldview camps.  So when a Christian brother gets picked on I just have to have to enter the conversation.

Its the Christmas season and I’ve been yearning to make jingles of truths that are biblical.

This year I’ve been attempting to write posts that puts theology into bite size memorable ditties.  Little rhymes to drive the point home.

Here’s one to encourage faithful evangelism:
