Meet, My Friend Jesus

At the beginning of the ’90’s, Josh McDowell in Right From Wrong, wrote about the best Christian response to the religious pluralism we find in our society.   He suggested (anticipating a  post-2000 trend) that Christians start sharing their faith out of their relationship with God.  Because Buddhist or Moslem individuals may not accept the Bible as a starting point, Josh said that in our lifestyle we can display our relationship with God.  At the same time I would add that in forming a friendship (relationship) with a non-believer, we can introduce them to God. 

I am going to begin a series of posts on this blog that will help us to understand those who do not know God and help us introduce them to Jesus.  But right now we can start by forming a friendship with those who are arriving in High Point with out a knowledge of Christ as Savior.  These posts will  only  be listed on the “Meet My Friend Jesus” category on this blog.
