Sermon Illustrations

Bill Faye, author of "Sharing Jesus without Fear," notes that Americans have found a new way to deny Christ: "It’s by keeping silent about him." Fay asked, "Do we really believe it when Jesus said that unless a person is saved, he’s damned?" And if we do, he asked, "How do we allow our people to stay In the sin of silence?" What excuse will Christians give at the judgment? he questioned. "I’m in terror for us that we will be humbled to the dirt because of our pitiful witness." Furthermore, he warned, "[I]f you and your people, individually and collectively do not evangelize, you will fossilize."
