We will not address each one of the
above objections and give Bible verses to prove our point.
Everyone knows that this type of work must be done. What
everyone does not know is how to get started.
There are 2 areas of a
#1 Before getting the Bible open.
#2 After getting the Bible open.
Most all conventional training
centers around #1.
How to make introductions.
How to get attention.
How to retain attention.
How to appear interested in the prospect.
How to turn the conversation to spiritual matters.
How to get them in the Bible
And so on.
The reason for all this preliminary
work is because the witness does not know exactly what he or she is
doing and is trying to make one's self and the prospect as comfortable as
possible, especially self.
This is all for nothing.
This type of training does not actually work, because the real life
situations never fit the classroom coaching, illustrations, etc.
The best way to start is
Show the trainees how to show the prospect how to be
saved from the
Bible in a flowing, logical manner that makes sense to a lost
person, not necessarily to a Christian. There is a difference.
Once the trainee understands what
needs to be imparted to the prospect and where the verses are, he or
she is ready to show someone.
One may think that this is where #1
Not so, instead of having the trainee attempt to get a prospect in
front of his open Bible, the coach should do this.
is the Point.
If the trainee is taken down the street to knock on doors to find a
prospect to talk to, it may takes weeks or months to find enough
people to get the witness out 2-4 times.
But if the trainee is taken to a Flea
Market or Festival and the Coach rounds up the prospects and passes
them to the trainee, the trainee can talk to as many as 10 or more
in a single day, depending on the crowd level.
Then once the trainee nails down #2,
showing the prospect from the Bible, he or she will not have near as
much trouble learning #1. Most, who truly understand the Bible
part, are able to get prospects into the Bible with little or no
training in #1.
Fear is eliminated by
Confidence rises when the trainee actually sees that people are
interested in hearing how to be
The trainee also becomes
confident enough to witness to Friends, Relatives, Neighbors,
Workmates, Schoolmates, etc. This is also how to build a
