God Will Not Call You into Something He Has Already Called You Out Of

“How do I share Christ with someone who is an agnostic?” a college student asked after a talk I gave last month at a church in Oklahoma. Then she added, “My boyfriend is agnostic, but I feel like God has called me into this relationship.” Uh-oh. It’s decision time. I just met this girl a few minutes ago, yet she is my sister in Christ. Do I simply answer her first question about evangelism and ignore her later statement about being “called” to date a non-Christian?

Letting God Take the Heat

Over the last decade as a Stand to Reason speaker, I’ve been yelled at, cursed at, and even threatened. Somehow, though, I haven’t yelled back, cursed back, or threatened anyone. In fact, I respond to such attacks in a rather calm way. How do I keep my cool? Here’s my secret: I let God take the heat.

Nevertheless, I recently posted on Twitter the reason why Jesus is the only way to Heaven (and I did it with two characters to spare!). I wrote: “There’s only one way to Heaven because there’s only one God that exists who’s made only one offer of forgiveness through His only one Son.” Though I didn’t write a lot, I still said a lot. It just needs to be unpacked.
