Personal Outreach: Lesson 4
 
By: Brent High

MOST PEOPLE RESPECT GOD, THE BIBLE, THE CHURCH

This approach will work with those who believe in God and have respect for the scriptures. Someone who does not believe in God and has no respect for scriptures is not unreachable, but reaching them oftentimes can be much more complicated.

Most people believe in a “higher being” and have respect for the Bible itself.

There is a great scene in the movie, “The Apostle”, of Billy Bob Thornton trying to tear down a church building with a tractor. Robert Duvall lays an open Bible down in the path between the tractor and the church. Thornton won’t drive over the Bible. SHOW CLIP

Weddings and funerals almost always have some type of religious reference.

You'll never find anyone "trashing" the Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms.

Show some old Bibles and read some things out of them.
