After seeing this photo from Ground Zero I was reminded why we need to keep the pro-life issue in the forefront of our evangelistic endeavors.
I handed each of our evangelism team leaders a handful of these 180 Movie tracts and exhorted them to start up a conversation using these questions:
1. Who are these two men?
2. What countries do they represent?
3. What year did the U.S. enter the war?
4. It’s 1943. A German officer has a gun pointed at you. He wants you to get into a bulldozer and drive it forward. In front of the bulldozer is a pit in which there are 300 Jews who have just been shot. Some of them are still alive. He wants you to bury them alive! If you don’t do what he says, he is going to kill you and do it himself. Would you drive it forward? Of course not; you value human life.
5. How then do you feel about abortion? Perhaps you don’t think it’s a human being in the womb. Hitler said the Jews weren’t human–so that he could justify killing them. And besides, you don’t know when life begins, right?
After talking a bit with them about life and death, it’s a very easy transition to asking them this: If you died today, would you go to Heaven or Hell?
With every evangelistic endeavor, we have an opportunity to save lives…and souls!
Here’s an example of how this can be done. (Please ignore my erroneous Beethoven “fact”.)
