As our culture trains us and our kids to occupy every moment of our day with information, entertainment, work, pleasure, amusement or excitement, there is still a dying world out there that desperately needs to hear the truth of the Gospel.

So, how are we preparing—and preparing our kids to fulfill “The Great Commission?” In other words; where does evangelism fit into today’s culture?
Our guest, Ray Comfort, is the author of over 70 books, including The Evidence Bible. He is also co-host of The Way of the Master.
Answering the Question: Is Evangelism Dead?
I am as guilty as anyone. Being in ministry 24/7 here at Shepherds Hill Academy, training parents, and hosting License to Parent with Trace Embry it’s easy, even as ministers, to squelch God’s voice in our own lives — and doing it all with the very tools that He’s given us to help build life into others.
I don’t know about you, but after ministering day in and day out, if I go to the grocery store to get a loaf of bread, too often that bread is all I’m interested in. I think there’s a balance here. Our guest helps us sort things out by discussing:
- A clear understanding of what it means for God to be a just God
- Can we truly understand God
- Are there different types of evangelism
- The importance for training for the “marathon”
- One way you can confront an atheist
- Understanding what it means to be a moral problem
- Why do some teens “get saved” seemingly every other week
