Presenting the Gospel
« on: March 28, 2012, 10:34:16 AM »
Hi Brothers and Sisters,

Can any of you give me a Bible passage that commands believers to present the gospel to unbelievers?

What is the point of your question?
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Hi Brothers and Sisters,

Can any of you give me a Bible passage that commands believers to present the gospel to unbelievers?

Mark 16:15
"Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Matthew 28:19
"Go and make disciples of all nations."

Almost all of us were unbelievers at one time, until we heard the preaching of the gospel.  :)
"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

Saved,

I was challenged with this question. My response was the Great Commission, but I wanted to see if anyone else had another passage in mind that addressed the issue.

Why do you need another verse?

Unbelievers challenge me all the time.  :o

From the Old Testament!
Ezekiel 33:6

But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.

We have been assigned to watch. Additionally, reward is also an issue.

John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me."
Sometimes the Gospel is not presented clearly enough for the non-elect to reject it.

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
