In an average week, one-in-five Americans share their religious faith online, about the same percentage that tune in to religious talk radio, watch religious TV programs or listen to Christian rock music. And nearly half of U.S. adults see someone else share their religious faith online in a typical week.
These are among the key findings from a survey conducted in May and June of 2014 that asked 3,217 adults from the Pew Research Centerâ€™s nationally representative American Trends Panel whether they had engaged in various kinds of religious activities during the previous week....
For a site that supports the giving away the Gospel of John, why is it no one has mentioned this?
John 20 30 Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. 29 The next day he saw^ Jesus coming to him, and said^, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
John 3 16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 6 28 They said therefore to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" 29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."NAS
Jesus said, Go ye into all the world & make disciples of every nation baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son & the Holy Ghost." However we do that by word, deed or godly living our faith will be shared---others will see ur good works & glorify the Father in heaven.
Share your faith--is that like share your sandwich? If it were a sandwich, would you cut it exactly halfways, or just give away the bread? How does it work with faith? Do you give away a part of your faith? If you do, does that mean you have less faith than before? And if it is online, how you do know who receives it, and whether they are just 'playing along' or 'humoring you' to achieve some ulterior purpose? In the religion of Islam, there is a principle called 'taqqiyya' that means any Muslim can deceive, lie, pretend, etc to anyone else (yes, even other Muslims) if they think it is for the purpose of advancing Islam. So any Muslim might say, "OH, I dreamed about Jesus last night," or "I really like your Christian faith--how do I become a Christian?" while still remaining a Muslim. "Share your faith" is religious jargon that many use without thinking of what it means to someone who does not have the same faith. Paul's letter to Timothy about praying for all men, but especially governing leaders, that we may all lead quiet lives, that this is good in the sight of God, who desires all men be saved, makes me think that creating conditions that enable all men to live quiet lives is what we are to be about, and God will take care of the rest.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one." Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. Romans 10:13 For "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved."---NASB
