This site is primarily to help others learn how easy it is to share the Gospel. Jesus used the Ten Commandments in Luke 18:18 when the rich ruler asked what he must do to get into Heaven.
Also by using these innovative and acceptable tracts from "The Way of The Master", by Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron, you get the opportunity to get the Word of God into the hands of the lost.

Saturday Night on Mill Ave inTempe

Praise the Lord as tonight was exciting as we had laborers for the Lord from both sides of the valley. We had Ken, this was his first time after coming to the seminar that we had on July 30th, who came from Avondale. Brandt & Haleh who live in Queen Creek, Jeremy, Tish and Joshua from Mesa, and Marcus Kat and Alex from Maricopa.

Catherine and I set up the sign asking, "Are you good person, take the test and get a free souvenir"  Lately, instead of offering money to answer trivia questions to draw a crowd, I now offer to give away free glow-sticks. I don't get it, what is it about a glow-stick that draws so many groups of people to take the test to get one.

Shortly after announcing that I was giving them away to anyone who can prove that they are a good person, I had 4 young teenagers, 3 guys, and one girl, stop and raise their hands. I asked them if they considered themselves to be a good, which all said yes. I then asked them that I would be asking them some questions to see if it were true. I was not going to use my opinion or the world's point of view, but God's Ten Commandment, would that be okay?  I say this to you so that you understand that I don't trick anyone into answering them, I make it very clear how we are going to come to that conclusion. 

After they admitted to breaking four of the most common, I asked how did they think God would find them, innocent or guilty?  They all responded ,"innocent!" I then asked how could a Holy, Righteous and Just God find them innocent when anyone who breaks God's Law would have to be guilty? They then said they where leaders from Young Life and their God was a loving and forgiving God. 

I tried to explain that God was not only a loving God, but a Righteous, Just and Holy God and because of that He must find a Law breaker guilty, or He wouldn't be God. I also mentioned that I hadn't heard anything from them about repentance, Godly sorrow that Jesus spoke about. Again they defended their position that Paul said that they only needed to believe in Jesus and they were saved. 

I then asked, saved from what? They already admitted to lying, stealing Blasphemy and lust of their heart, and it doesn't seem like you have any remorse. So if they have been given this information by the church they attend, that your God is a loving and forgiving God, then based on that statement alone, every human being is going to Heaven and no one would be going to Hell. We need to be careful about what we say to those who are lost and not give them a false God to worship.   

Jeremy also tried speaking to them as well. If you only speak of God's love and not the Wrath of God then you have created a God that is not the God of the Bible. 

I find it sad today as so many who are being raised in the church have been told of a false God, that Jesus, or God is a loving God and now believe that their sins are forgiven.

One problem, Jesus Himself states in several places, Mat 4:17, From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Mat. 11:20, Mar 6:12, Luke 13:3,5, Jesus repeats Himself. 

Peter, in Acts 2:38, Acts 17:30, Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.  
Revelation has several as well, Rev. 3:3 is one of them.

So where am I wrong?  
Tell me if you have been told the same message as these youngsters. Maybe it's time we speak the whole truth to those who are in and out of church!

1st Frdiay Night at the Phoenix Art Fair

What can I say that I haven’t said before! This Friday night was like any other 1st Friday night where the lost come in droves to stroll up and down Roosevelt Ave in Phoenix. AZ. This gathering seems to be different than when we go out on Saturday nights to Mill Ave in Tempe. They are not walking alone. They come with a friend or several friends. Many are there with their whole families, they even bring their babies in strollers.

Too many times I have been told from the christian community that they cannot come there because they are spending time with their children. Why not come and spend some time with your family, so by example, teach them how to reach the lost?

As I set up the sign that asks if they would like to have a souvenir, if they can prove that they are a “Good Person”, those who are curious start to hang around. Maybe these are what I have heard some churches state that are ,”Seekers”! But those of us who know scripture, that’s not true. They are either lost or saved! When I bring out the glow-sticks, and ask who would like one, these few seekers become a mob.

This night was another blessing for the Lord! He used these glow-sticks like the miracles He performed 2000 years ago. I’m not saying this is just like the miracles He performed, I’m saying the drawing of the crowd is what it must have been like when those who saw the miracles told others and that’s when it became a large crowd.

When I was finished taking the first group of about 20-25 people through the test, another crowd was waiting to answer the same questions. I started about 8:30 and didn’t stop till around 11. I gave the same Gospel message about why they need a Savior. What is so sad is that of the hundreds of times that I have asked the question, would God find you Innocent or guilty to those who admitted breaking just (4) of His Commandments, the majority answer “INNOCENT! “ When I ask how can that be, they tell me that God is loving and forgiving. This is the most popular answer from those who admit not attending a church as well as those who claim to be Christians.

Last night was the worst abomination I have ever seen! I had in front of me about 30 young men and women who claimed that the Lord loves homosexuals. They were constantly trying to explain their lifestyle. Not only were they screaming that at me but one young girl stated that she was attending seminary and was taught that the Bible stated that the Lord loves homosexuals. I hope you can handle this part... two of the men came up next to me and starting kissing each other for about 5 minutes in a very passionate way.

So help me out here

  • Shouldn't we be bringing the truth to the streets?
  • Can you see the possibility, that we could reach more of those who are held captive by Satan where they are hanging out, then by trying to bring one or two to church?

The Lord Himself, both in Mark 16:15, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
and in Acts 1:8, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you hall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, (Phoenix) and in all Judea (Tempe) and Samaria, (Scottsdale) and even to the remotest part of the earth."

He commands us to GO reach out to the lost, why not come out on a 1st Friday night and be the one who answers His prayer. Luke 10:2 "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Experience the joy of knowing that you are being an obedient servant for the Lord. John 14: 15. "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
