that is good…
Since most of the sects and cults eat the ‘Law’ up (it’s the mainstay in their spiritual diet)…they think it’ll be great nourishment for everybody else too!
bwaahaa! I just shot communion wine out my nose. (burns a little)
The Four Spiritual Laws? It must be nigh on thirty years since I last heard about them. Are they really still doing the rounds?
i dunno. i couldn’t think of anything else i could fit on the small leaflet. I original thought of Chick Publications, THIS WAS YOUR LIFE, but that was even longer!
Ouch, that hurt.
They didn’t even offer to pray “the sinner’s prayer”–how cold!
I actually have in-laws who still insist on wrapping their very chintzy “tips” for waitstaff at restaurants with a “gospel tract.” It is mortifying.
We just had a little situation like this in an outreach thingy that a friend of mine set up with ‘street people’.
Some other people from a church/ministry share the place where we welcome these people and they came up with somegruesome flyers. One even has a test for finding out whether you’re gonna go to hell or not.
Prety impractical for a place where we simply share our welath with people and offer them opportunities to eat, talk, listen, explore, fellowship in an open environment with no strings attached.
I do hope we’ll stop sacrificing people to some sort of perfect theology…
i work for the people that wrote that little book and yeah, they still use it
i have never used it even though i have pretended to use it on days when the office was to go out in the community and “witness”. i went to the beach instead and talked to whoever happened to be on the bench.
i don’t like working here and hope to God i don’t get fired if my boss finds this comment
[…] David Hayward reminds us that what we often think are the “tried and true” methods of evangelism aren’t so tried and true.Â They may actually seem a little absurd. […]
