Penn’s Video “Gift of a Bible”

“How much do you have to hate a guy NOT to tell him about heaven?”  Devout atheist Penn Jillette (from Penn & Teller) poses a great challenge to all believers.  Here, he gives pause to reflect the impact of one man’s gift:

1. He respects those who are outspoken for their Christian [or any] beliefs.

2. He respects those who express a genuine care for others. [in this case, for eternity]

3. He respects those who intelligently, cordially conduct themselves.

What’s your excuse for not sharing the Good News?

In his book, “The Unchurched Next Door” Tom S. Ranier says,  “82% of all unchurched people would “MOST LIKELY” visit a church if invited by someone they know.”  Sadly, “less than 2% of Christians have invited someone in the last year.”  Staggering.

1 Peter 3:15-16 (NIV) 15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

I showed this video at our church to remind our people about how sometimes the little things we say or do can make a big difference.  I hope this inspires you to share the Good News.  Keep praying for Penn.  He is a talented man, and I hope to see him in heaven some day.
