Evangelism in a Post Modern World: Man is a Sinner

"Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.  Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent" (Acts 17:29-30).

In Acts 17, Paul continues to tell us how to approach people in our culture.  After explaining to the men in Athens who God is, he continues to reveal the true nature of man.  Idolatry is not innocent.  It is rebellion against God Himself.  God is "declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent" (Acts 30).

In our culture there are too many people who believe that there is no absolute truth and that every person is right in their own inner being.  The theological term for that is:  BALONEY.  Romans 1:18-32 clearly tells us that ever man has a conscience and that every man has violated his own moral conscience.  Sin is a reality in every person's life.

Judgment day is coming whether people believe it or not.  We have the only cure to escape the wrath that will come to unbelievers.  If we worked in a medical laboratory and found a cure for a disease that would 100% for sure kill 100% of people, what would our responsibility be with that cure?  It would be to share it!  If we put a steeple on that medical laboratory, knowing that there is a disease out there that will kill 100% of the people (SIN) and we know the cure (JESUS CHRIST), what is our responsibility to do with it?  Share it! 

Let's go!
