    Bro. Trieber knows me personally, Tim Trieber that is. 
  1. Awesome tips, updated! thanks.
  2. Aside from spiritual advice, counsel, etc such as "have faith", etc... what is one practical tip you would like to share with those that are new to door-to-door evangelism? I'll compile the list here as well if I am able to edit, I'll start: Know your community's culture. Example: Words such as "omnipresence" may be understood in one community but not in other communities. Pay attention to people's verbal/non-verbal cues. If they don't want to talk, and are just being polite, give them an out and try to leave something for them to read. As you're the respondent permits...and as time permits...give them the actual gospel. Don't side-step the gospel for a popular modern-day derivative or anything less. They need to know and understand that the Lord Jesus Christ died for their sins according to the scriptures (and what that entails). They need to know and understand that he was buried (and what that entails), They need to know and understand that he rose from from the dead on the third day according to the scriptures (and what that entails). 1 Corinthian 15 Be persistent and not be discouraged. Complete the process. Too often we go "soul-winning" and then we leave these new converts on their own. When you do see fruit, be sure to follow up with discipleship. If you don't teach them somebody else will, and most likely they won't teach them the truth. Find what is effective in your area and do it. Be wise. There are some houses you should never leave the front porch and enter into, even if invited. Never step into a trap and risk ruining your testimony and that of the Lord. People will gleefully look for an opportunity to destroy a reputation, even if nothing wrong occurs. If a person can't think of any on their own, they probably should consider serving in another capacity. Be wise and over-protective of any ladies out visiting as well. Be appropriate - in your dress and in your words; not just the words you use to present the gospel, but in the words you use to introduce yourself and any "small talk." No slang usages of God's name (that's a real biggie in this area - even the Christians use it like crazy...drives me crazy!), don't try to be "cool" or "with-it". Realize that you are not door knocking to "get results" but that you are going in order to give the person an opportunity to hear the Gospel in obedience to the Great Commission. Plant and water whatever ground you find and in due time God will give the increase and build His church.
  3. While Billy Sunday and J. Vernon McGee were Presbyterians, they were also fundamentalists. Bob Jones Sr. was a fundamentalist as well.
  4. I am a big fan of political satire. Most satire comedians are liberals such as Jon Stewart. The only conservative satire comedian I can think of is Greg Gutfeld of FOX News. Aside from his political views, I like Jon Stewart for some of his comedy and his activism as well (Zadroga Act for 9/11 First Responders).
  5. Good evening, I am a graduate of Golden State Baptist College in Northern California. Currently I am a member of a medium-sized IFB church here in Northern California, serving in the education department as a teacher for the Christian school. Looking forward to getting involved in some of the discussions here! Johnny.
