Bad things happen… then they ask Wheres God ? When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do ?"
Peter speaking to the Jews – they believed in Creation
What can we do ?
Start at the very beginning ! Genesis Chapters 1 – 11 Sin Salvation You dont have to be Billy Graham – Invite them to church, youth group, etc.
Easy terms ? Maybe not … God Sin Jesus Not everyone understands the basics !
You are talking to people who have no foundation ! USA Japan Greece Jews Even your friends have a completely different culture ! Many people IN CHURCH dont have a basic understanding of the Bible / Gospel
Christian Worldview vs. Evolution
What can we do ?
Good news vs. bad news
Death: Bloodshed, Suffering, Disease
You cant convince anyone ! The Holy Spirit does the convincing / convicting ! Mans responsibility vs. Gods Soverignty
What about you ? Romans 3:23 – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord Romans 10:9 – That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:13 – "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." If you are saved, what are you doing for the Lord, for heavens sake ? If you are saved, what are you doing for the Lord, for heavens sake ?
The End What do you think now ? – Millions or years or – ~6,000 years old What does it all mean for you ?
