I hadn’t been out to share the Gospel in a while due to the holidays, so it was nice to get back out there. Tom, Catherine, Ronnie, Joe, Marcus, Jennifer and I met out on Mill Ave to hand out tracts and preach the Word as we’re commanded in the Great Commission. It was a pretty good night, not real busy, but there were more people out later on. Tom kept busy talking to small groups of people and I did some open air preaching. You can catch more of Tom's experiences at his Blog.
A man named Chris stopped by and went through Good Person Test after some trivia questions. He seemed to have a pretty good grasp of the Gospel, but I took him through the whole thing anyway, so that others could hear it as well.
Next, a woman named Misty came and asked if we were giving away money for trivia, so I did some trivia and then took her through the Good Person Test. She seemed to have a general knowledge of Christianity, but she hadn’t heard it explained quite like this before, and she said it made a lot of sense. She seemed convicted, and much more serious after I had quoted Hebrews 10:26-27 to her.
Our atheists showed up later on, and Rocco got on the mic for a while, talking about all the “transitional fossils” that have been found…. and I hadn’t brought the turtle duck.
He also went on about how evolution has been proven and how looking into the eyes of animals, you can tell that there is some ancient ancestor there. He talked about how monkeys can learn sign language and their feelings and all that, but still, no group of animals have ever set up a court system to uphold their morality. And speaking of morals, I don’t know how those could ever evolve, they have to borrow those from Christianity, while still attempting to deny the God who gave them.
Then I asked if they had any idea why pretty much everywhere in the world uses a 7 day week, since 7 does not divide evenly into any natural cycles. There is absolutely no reason for a 7 day week at all except for the creation account in the Bible, where God created everything in 6 days and rested on the 7th. It serves as a constant reminder of our God and creation, every single week that goes by. Of course, our atheists attempted to argue about that, but they had nothing that made any sense. I bet they’re looking into that right now.
