Christian Evangelist meets Atheist Evangelist!
September 14, 2010
Yes, the title to this blog post is true! As I was reading aloud God’s Word on a street corner along Cumberland Ave.(UT students walk up and down to eat and drink!) an atheist approached me and handed me the atheist version of the Christian gospel tract. It looks like the monopoly get out of jail free card and similar to the Christian version of the Get out of hell tract. The website on their tract at the time of the writing of this post is: http://godisjustpretend.com
I am keeping this tract and not throwing it away. It will remind me to pray for this man to come to faith and repentance in Jesus.
I moved elsewhere down Cumberland. This time I was on the corner in front of Taco Bell. Across the street was a bar with its garage doors open.(Tin Roof) Next to the Tin Roof was a liquor store. I read scripture again and lots of college kids walked by me. A young pretty black college girl walked by me and for a few seconds turned around from her friends and her eyes met mine. I smiled and said a silent prayer for her. Soon afterward, another group of kids walked by me. A young man told me to keep up the work. I handed him a tract. He told me he was a Presbyterian. I told him, “Well, I give it to you so you can give it to someone who needs it.” He said, “Ok.” He smiled and walked on with his friends. I kept reading scripture til I had the need to stop to rest my voice. As I left, I prayed for everyone I met or who walked in earshot of me for repentance and salvation to those unsaved. To the saved, an encouragement for them to encourage them in the faith.
Now for all of the believers reading this blog: As a unique prod to your soul, I encourage you to follow the Great Commission and share Jesus with others. If the Atheist Evangelist giving me a tract proclaiming his faith in Atheism(or lack thereof) then what a unique prod it should be for us to proclaim Jesus to ALL the Lord puts in our path. Time is running out, the Rapture is around the corner. Let us make sure people have the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus(faith and repentance) so they can make the choice for the better and not miss the Rapture and miss the wrath and judgment of God for the unbeliever.
