Why is it so hard to share the gospel?
In the past, missionaries who worked overseas environments had to use more complex approaches to witnessing than the average Christian in America. Why? Because they generally had to overcome truth mirages (false beliefs) that American Christians didn’t even have to think about. Unfortunately, in contemporary times, that has all changed.
In the past, all we generally needed was to share the simple gospel message and offer people the opportunity to respond – most everyone at least understood what we were talking about. In today’s world, though, that is often not the case. Many people hold false, non-Christian, beliefs that have to be shattered before they are able to even understand our message, much less be willing to receive it.
Religiously, we are a more diverse nation that we used to be, and exclusively using traditional approaches is often ineffective. We need to expand our skill set and learn to use the missionary’s toolbox.
Freddy and Tal have zeroed in on this need and have developed a methodology for Shattering the Truth Mirage in order to share an effective witness across every belief barrier.
