A Christian friend asked me to pray for his ailing family member. I asked if she was a Christian. He wasn't sure. I asked if she had ever heard the gospel message. He looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Of course she has! She lives in America. There is a church on every corner, church on TV and even on the radio. Of course she has heard the gospel!" How many of us actually believe we don't need to share the gospel with those God brings into our lives because they must have already heard it? After all, we live in America!


  1. Good point Diane. Not only that but our "Christian" nation isn't so Christian any more. Who knows if the average person has heard the gospel or not. Even if they have, I'm willing to bet that it's a dumbed-down, distorted seculiarized version that only talks being "moral" and "a good person"...nothing about the need for a Savior.
