EE 4/26/11

    A great Tuesday evening 4/26/11 at the College of Lake County. When I first arrived I talked with Bear for a while. After that I went and had a coffee and spoke with rabbi Bob on the phone and then I prayed for the best way to witness that evening. With cold calling the approach is critical, especially since I have been handing out tracts for many weeks and can’t always remember who received one.

    I decided to do some questionaire evangelism. I went back to the commons smoking area outside. I noticed a young man standing alone. I asked him if he would do a questionaire and he said yes. His name is Brad. He was a completely blank slate. He was not an atheist nor did he know anything about religion. He was a true agnostic. He seemed to have no opinion whatsoever. As far as requirements to get to heaven, he was totally unsure. After answering all of the questions that I had asked him, I then asked if he wanted to know how to get to heaven. He said yes. So I shared the entire gospel with him. At the very end he had to get going back to class. I gave him a gospel tract and thanked him for listening to me. Pray for Brad.

    My second contact was with a man named John. He was standing alone and I attempted to hand him a tract. He handed it back and said he was jewish. I replied, “so was Jesus and all of the apostles”. We then had a great 15 minute discussion about Judaism, the Bible, Passover, etc… I think he was surprised how “jewish” Christianity really is. Please pray for John. He said he was going to go back and read his Bible. He thought all religion was man-made, even Judaism.

    My third contact was a young lady I will call “Lisa”. She grew up attending a Lutheran church her entire life. She even attended private Lutheran school. She doesn’t beleive in God, but she has regular “contact” with the spirit realm. I believed her. She admitted during our discussion that her entire belief system is based purely on emotion and that she would need to rethink her beliefs.

    My final contact was with a young lady named Kayla. Turns out Kayla carries a Bible and Christian books with her at all times. She reads a lot. Kayla’s grandfather is a pastor. Her family and her boyfriend’s family all regularly attend church and have for many years. Kayla was absolutley certain she is going to heaven. The reason she gave for believing she is going to heaven is because she is a good person and does more good than bad and has gone to church all of her life. She also said she believed that “all paths” lead to God. I asked her if I could share what I believe the Bible teaches about Heaven and Eternal Life. She said yes. I shared the entire gospel with her. I could see she was trying not to cry and then her phone rang and she had to leave to catch her ride. Pray for Kayla.

    All in all it was a really blessed evening of sharing the love of Christ with those who are lost at CLC. I also handed out about 10+ gospel tracts.
