In July 2005, a dear sister in the Lord went to the streets, just four blocks from the White House and within a stone’s throw of several churches, with a television camera and a microphone. Her objective: ask random people a very simple question, who is Jesus Christ? One man, a Muslim, said Jesus Christ was “The Big Cheese.” A woman said that Jesus was supposed to be the savior of the world, but that she didn’t see how a man could take on that title. Still another said that Jesus was a nice man who did a lot of good. Another Muslim said that he was not Christian, so he could not define Jesus for someone else,
They are “Christophobes.” They fear and hate anything to do with Jesus Christ. They see what is represented by His Holy Name as inflammatory and intolerant.
Most always the confutation over the issue of children and the rapture of the church is wrapped around the scripture: “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy” (1 Cor. 7:14).
It’s Sunday morning and you’ve just arrived for Sunday school. What do you talk about? Is your conversation focused on Jesus?
