Friendship Evangelism


If you saw someone who was about to drink deadly poison, what would you do? Would you warn him? Wouldn't there be a sense of urgency on your part to stop him from putting that cup to his lips? Would you passively become friends with him and let him drink as you talk with him about other things? "Friendship evangelism," which never warns people of any danger, is the ultimate betrayal of trust. How can we call ourselves that person's "friend" and not warn them? Friends don't let friends go to Hell. Who do you know who isn't saved? Why are you hesitating to warn them? How will you feel if today he or she is snatched into eternity and gone forever? Don't put off what you know you must do. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
