What is the gospel?  What is conversion?  What is repentance?  How can you know if you and others are saved?

Prov 15:7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

You can't...

...else, why would God have to judge if you already knew the judgement?

savvy?

The Gospel in a Nutshell

In 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, the apostle Paul summarizes the most basic ingredients of the gospel message, namely, the death, burial, resurrection, and appearances of the resurrected Christ. Note the four clauses introduced by that in bold type in verses 3-5 below:

15:1 Now I want to make clear for you, brothers and sisters, the gospel that I preached to you, that you received and on which you stand, 15:2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 15:3 For I passed on to you as of first importance what I also received—that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, 15:4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures, 15:5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve…4   https://bible.org/article/what-Gospel

gospel is the translation of the Greek noun euangelion  (...) “good news,” and the verb euangelizo (...), meaning “to bring or announce good news.”

How should we share the gospel.  What do you tell an individual while engaged with him?

Jokes aside... sharing truth, is all about learning first, what the other considers to be their truths, and one must probe deeply into that in order to understand exactly what theological premise one is believing in - and if it doesn't hold up in terms of simplicity of accpetance, then you can point that out and show them why that personal theology of their is wrong... you can do this many ways, but you must always start off with an example the person can relate to. A real world example. You can support that example with a verse from the bible, so long as it follows the correct context, for you must never EVER mislead someone to truth via scriptural inconsistencies... problem is, that with you as a Christian, you'll be forever trying to find consistency within your bible... and that will be a massive problem for you.

Unless you was engaging with a starving person from the third world who was under the "food for faith" initiative which is very well known amongst us truthers.

I agree with most of what you say, but I cant say I am surprised you got the bold in there.

Is there an urgency, or should there be an urgency?
