  1. Thanks for your answer. I've used tracts quite often, especially when I was doing street evangelism with Teen Challenge back in the 80's. We would pass them out weekly by the hundreds on the streets of downtown KCMO. After doing that for a while, I began doing less distribution and more conversational type ministry, while the others would be passing out the tracts. I don't know if you went to the link I posted here. I moved it to Videos, Biblical Topics, Do Gospel Tracts Really Work. I would be interested in what you think. It's only 9 minutes long. Gary
  2. I notice that you are involved in street evangelism. Many years ago I was working with a ministry called Teen Challenge in down town KCMO. We passed out thousands of tracts along with doing Coffee House ministry to people that would come in off the streets. It was quite a rewarding experience. Do you do tract distribution, street preaching, coffee house ministry, etc? If so, how is it going, and what kind of materials are you using? Gary
  3. Hello Curious Faithful. It is apparent that you are experiencing something unusual in your life. The first thing that we are to do as Christians when we encounter things of this nature is to (as already mentioned by some here) try the spirits. 1 John 4:1 (KJV) 1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. The only standard in which to try these spirits is the Word of God. If these spirits are not of God and found to be evil, the next thing is to turn away from them, not embrace or study them. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (KJV) 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. The next thing I would ask myself if this were happening to me is, if I continue to give attention to these spirits that are not of God, am I in effect disobeying God’s command to “Abstain from all appearance of evil?” and in doing so quench the Holy Spirit in my life? In verse 21, I would find what it is that I am to do rather than giving my attention to these spirits, and that is “hold fast to that which is good.” Philippians 4 teaches us what we are to keep our minds on, but the clincher for me is found in this biblical command: Mark 12:30 (KJV) 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. If we love God to this capacity, then we will not have the time to study evil or unfamiliar spirits. A sharp rebuke in the name of Jesus is the only dealings we should have with them. I hope this helps in some way. God be with you. Gary
  4. Hello David. You are right. Jack Chick definitely had a calling to do what he did, and I'm glad he did it so well. I know his tracts had a profound effect on me and I'm sure multitudes of others. What did you think of the link I posted? Gary
  5. It looks like you are sold on the use of Gospel Tracts. So glad to hear of someone who believes in the power of the printed word in tracts. You may not have gone to the link I shared here because I moved it to "Videos, Biblical Topics, Do Gospel Tracts Really Work?" This little 9 minute segment of a man who reached thousands of people through his 40 years of passing out Tracts, is an awesome story of faithful endurance in the work of Christ. Hope you will be able to listen to it and give me your thoughts on it. Gary
  6. Hello walla299. I don't think you were able to listen to the link on the effectiveness of tracts, because it was removed from here by admin. My fault. I moved it to the Video Forum under the title "Do Gospel Tracts Really Work?" It is only 9 minutes long, but well worth the time. Please let me know what you think.

  9. This was moved here from the General Forum I don't know if this belongs here because I did not see an evangelism forum. Back in 1969 after coming home from Vietnam, a woman gave me a chick tract entitled "This Was Your Life." After reading this tract I felt conviction of sin right away. I would like to say that I came to the Lord shortly thereafter, but it took 5 years before I actually repented of my sin and received Christ as my Savior. The sad thing is, that I experienced this conviction of sin off and on (mostly on) for the next 5 years. I can only guess as to why I waited so long, but I am very thankful to this woman who gave me this tract. The link below will tell of a man who passed out tracts everyday for over 40 year. It is only 9 minutes long, but in my opinion very inspiring. I'm sure you know why. I hope all who listen to this will also be inspired also. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew1srubCw_0 Gary
  10. Tract distribution is a great way to plant the seed, and water it, so that God can bring forth the increase. Yes, the message of that tract is still embedded in my mind. Gary
  11. It is quite a story of faithfulness to the work of the Lord in which his labor was not in vain. Gary

  13. Da End Iss Near Ole is the Pastor of the local Norwegian Lutheran Church and Pastor Sven is the minister of the Swedish Covenant Church across the road. One day they are seen pounding a sign into the ground, which said: DA END ISS NEAR! TURN YERSELF AROUNT NOW BAFOR IT ISS TOO LATE! As a car speeds past them, the driver leans out his window and yells, "Leave people alone, you Skandihoovian religious nuts!" From the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash. Shakin' his head, Rev. Ole says "Dat's da terd one dis mornin'." "Yaa," Pastor Sven agrees, then asks, "Do ya tink maybe da sign should yust say, 'Bridge Out?'"
