A logical fallacy is, in simple terms, an error of reasoning. When someone arrives at a position, or tries to convince someone else to adopt that position, based on a false piece of reasoning, they commit a fallacy. Here’s one example of a logical fallacy. Premise: Ducks are birds. Ducks swim in the water.Chickens are birds. Therefore, chickens swim in the water. To expose this logical fallacy we plainly cite that…

When we think of evangelism, we often think of it in terms of the church going out and engaging the lost. We understand the Great Commission includes Jesus command to “go out and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). What we may overlook in the evangelistic process is not “the church going out,” but “the church being the church.” Let me explain. While Jesus was giving His final marching…

Some of the most startling words the Lord uttered during his earthly ministry came forth from His mouth while hanging on a Roman cross: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” - Luke 23:34 The context is jarring! Jesus, while being tormented, intercedes for His tormentors! If we’re honest, we can’t read those word and simply go on our way. They are words to be pondered.…

As she recalls in her book called ‘The Hiding Place” Dutch Christian Corrie Ten Boom was confined in a concentration camp at Ravensbruck, Germany for her part in sheltering Jews from their Nazi oppressors during World War 2. Her father died in another camp, and in the dehumanizing conditions of Ravensbruck she was not only humiliated and degraded, but she watched the life of her sister Betsy ebb away. Yet…

Reaching out to one person can make a huge difference. You may have heard or read the story of the boy walking along the beach with his father. A recent storm had washed thousands of starfish onto the beach, and many of them were dying. The boy began stooping over and tossing the starfish back into the surf. The puzzled father asked, “With thousands of dying starfish stranded here on…

It had been many years since I jumped off the boat into the water and donned water skis. Growing up on Florida’s west coast, I spent lots of time on boats. I often sailed with my dad and went on motorboats with my friends. I enjoyed lots of inner tubing, being pulled behind boats,  but water skiing wasn’t my thing. You see, I was around nine years old when I…

Some of the self-imposed limitations we Christians sometimes place upon our witnessing efforts, or lack thereof, are expressed in these ways: “I’m not gifted enough. I’m not smart enough. I’m not experienced enough. I’m not _______.” This perceived human lacking actually flies in the face of our calling to walk by faith with the Lord who tells us in His word, “I can do all things (including the work of evangelism)…

Evangelism is a process, not an event. Paradoxically, the process is made up of separate events which God uses in an individual’s journey to faith, and how God brings people to Himself is infinite in variety. In his book The Heart of Evangelism, Jerram Barrs notes: “God has created each individual in His likeness, and He is a God who delights in diversity; so there is an infinite number of…

The first time people began sharing the gospel with me, I was a college student. My initial responses were outright rejection of that message. Growing up in a liberal Jewish family, I was  taught Jesus was the god of the Gentiles and had no relevance to us. However, people kept coming, and the Holy Spirit kept working on my heart. Four years passed between the time people began witnessing to me…

Let’s play a brief word association game, shall we? I’ll say, or in this case, write a word. Then I want you to note the first thing that comes into your mind. Ready? Public speaking - you think? I don’t know what first popped into your head. But for many people, public speaking evokes thoughts like panic or fear. In fact, according to most studies, public speaking is near the…
