  1. 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.

    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?" in BIBLICAL TOPICS It is only  9 minutes long, but well worth the time. Please let me know what you think.

  2. 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?'"

    Hi and welcome! I don't want winter to arrive though.  Here on the west coast it's rainy and will be cold with wet snow in winter.  I prefer summer.  Enjoy the discussions!

    Thanks for the welcome. Looking forward to the discussions.

    Hi, bropro, and welcome to Worthy.  You are really looking forward to winter???  You must like driving on ice better than I do.

    Thank you for the welcome. I have loved winter since I was a kid. Driving in it does not bother me at all. It's the other drivers that scare me.

  6. When people ask me whether I am Republican or Democrat, I simply tell them that as a Christian I try my best to view life through the lens of scripture. With the political climate being as it is, and has been for some years, if I identify with the Liberal party I lose the ability to witness to those who are conservative. If I identify with the Conservative party, I lose the ability to witness to those who are Liberal. My ability to witness to people about Christ, is more important than winning a political argument. And my ability to love the sinner and hate the sin is possible only by the grace of God.
