“How dare you tell me that I’m not a Christian!! I believe Jesus is my Lord and Savior!! Get away from me, now!!”
—A woman’s rebuke to fellow evangelist (and Ambassadors’ Alliance mentor) Ed Lee, after he told her that the Jesus she believed in was not the Jesus of the Bible.
Here’s the full story:
Saturday afternoon as I was laboring as a sniper on the outskirts of the crowd, I spoke to a Mormon couple. After handing them a million dollar bill, and asking them the million dollar question, they reponded by saying that they believed in God and that they were going to heaven. I said “Great. Are you Christians?” They answered, “Yes we are!” I then asked them what church they go to, and they answered that they went to the Mormon church. I told them that the Jesus they believed in was not the Jesus of the Bible. Their belief that Jesus was a created being and that he was the brother of Satan is not what the bible teaches, and that unless they believed in the true Jesus, their beliefs were in vain!! The woman immediately rebuked me and said, “How dare you tell me that I’m not a Christian!! I believe Jesus is my Lord and Saviour!! Get away from me, now!!”
Before agreeing to leave, I told them I would rather risk offending them with the truth rather than letting them leave thinking they were destined to heaven when in fact, they believed in a false God and are doomed to perish. They again asked me to leave, which I did. On reflecting upon my experience, it was strange that they did not challenge my statements of their belief, or try to convince me that their belief was right according to the bible. What a tragic deception, believing in a false God that cannot save you!
