New Intro For Giving Out Bible In 11 Cards

7 December 2013 No Comment

Hi everyone,
I have been experimenting with new ways of introducing the Bible in 11 cards to non-Christians.

The following seems to create great interest to watch the video.biblein11-card

After a bit of small talk, I turn the conversation around to spiritual things.

For example, I might say “I direct a charity in NZ. John, have you had any contact with a church?”

Or “I direct a charity in NZ.  John, do you have any interest in spiritual things?”

Given most of those reading this blog are not director’s of charities, how could you turn the conversation onto spiritual things? You might say:

“John, I am quite involved with my church. Have you had any church background?”

Or “John, I spend quite a lot of time doing church stuff. What about you?  Have you had any involvement with churches?”

If these “bridges” into the spiritual don’t sit well with you, think of ones which would.  Make up your own “bridges” which you’d feel comfortable delivering.

Then ask two questions, one after the other with no break in between the two:

  1. “When you arrive at the pearly gates, and one day you will, what do you think would qualify you to enter heaven?
  2. If Jesus said to you ‘John, give me two reasons I should admit you into heaven’ what would you say?”

The answers people give are just so interesting and varied but here are some of the most common:

“I have been a good person”

“I have been honest”

“I have helped people”

“I have no idea! I have never thought about it.”

two thingsAfter this, I say “Being good and being honest and helping people are good things. But you know what, they don’t qualify us to enter heaven.  We just made a video which explains the two things you must do to be absolutely sure of going to heaven when you die. Here, the web address is on this card.”

Or “Being good and being honest and helping people are good things. But you know what, they don’t qualify us to enter heaven.  Do you want to know the two things Jesus said qualify a person to enter heaven?  Watch this 11 minute video – here, it’s on this card – to find out what the two things really are. It’s an awesome video and it’s only 11 minutes.”

Then just see where the conversation goes.

Sometimes you’ll be able to say “Here, I have the video on my iPhone. Let’s watch it together now”.  At the end, give away the booklet “How to be sure of going to heaven when you die”.

I have had some amazing experiences doing this.

If the person I am talking to is a fun kind of person, and after they have given their responses, I’d say “You’re miles out!”

Then give them the card.

It’s been great doing this. Just yesterday I was in a shop buying something and a young guy (in his twenties) behind the counter said “Interesting…I have tried three times to read the Bible but could never understand it. Thanks. I’ll watch it when I get home”.

Now there is something to think about…

P.S If in response to your question “John, I am quite involved with my church. Have you had any church background?” they say “No, I don’t believe in that stuff” just say “That’s Ok. Just imagine heaven is a reality.   What do you think would qualify someone to enter there?”
