Questions with Eternal Consequences
Series Crosstalk America
Some 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ walked the earth proclaiming the Gospel in order to seek and to save those who were lost. He said that he came so that they would have life and that they would have it more abundantly.
According to the guest on this edition of Crosstalk, 339 questions are recorded in the Gospels that Jesus asked people. These are questions dealing with eternal consequences, so if the Lord used such questions in dealing with lost individuals, is it possible that we should learn from His example?
Returning to Crosstalk to discuss this issue was Mike Gendron. Mike is the founder and director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry. Mike was a devout Roman Catholic for over 3 decades and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church above all else. Mike searched the Scriptures and was amazed to find that what he read in Scripture contradicted the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. He trusted Jesus as his Savior and now the Bible has become his sole authority in all matters of faith. Mike is the author of the books, Preparing for Eternity and Contending for the Gospel and has produced numerous videos with warnings concerning false teachings vs. the truth of the Scripture.
How is asking questions an effective means of sharing the Gospel? Mike noted that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care and one of the best ways you can do that is by asking questions. The other thing you can do is to remember that Jesus asked questions to confront people in their unbelief.
Find out what the other questions are so that you can effectively share the truth with Roman Catholic friends.
