Welcome to a new weekly feature that will spotlight silly comments from this blog’s resident atheists, challenges to religious liberties in the U.S., and unbeliever’s opinions in general along with various and sundry articles and videos to help you deal with the atheist/unbeliever/agnostic/unsaved-and desperately-needing-a-Savior person in your life.
This week, I want to post a comment by a particularly snarky atheist who’s been hanging around here for several months: His name is AZOU (they never give their real names) and, unbeknown to him, he’s become something of a hero for the evangelist’s cause. On Sunday he left a comment on my Everyday Club post where members share how well they did on their monthly evangelist goals. Here it is:
“I threw a stack of tracts in the garbage. Sorry, but I prefer the bathroom at work to be tidy! Not the only garbage I’ve tossed in there.”
Many evangelists were encouraged by his comment knowing that God can use everything for His purposes. Paul Latour responded to Azou with this friendly reminder:
Thank you for helping us spread the Word of God by heaving gospel tracts into the trash. I have read more than one story of janitors and santitation workers finding these things in trash bins as they cleaned them out, were convicted by what they read, surrendered their life to Christ and were saved. Imagine that: sins forgiven and eternal life granted them in Heaven by what they found in the trash. Isn’t God wonderful?
Your contribution is very much appreciated. Bless you!
What are your evangelistic goals for August? Keep up the good work!
The same thought was expressed by SeedSowerJoy:
It’s just possible that the person who empties out the trash in that restroom will see the tracts and read one. Who knows? He may’ve repented and put his trust in the Lord and he would have YOU to thank for providing the information he needed. Just imagine that! God’s Word always end up exactly where He intended.
This comment by Robert Moss reminds all Christians that leaving tracts in bathrooms is a great idea:
When you need help concentrating on doing business in the bathroom I help aide anyone (even atheists ) by leaving reading material…especially Chick Tracts due to their length and good artwork.
And Dede saw this as a rallying cry to do more!:
you and other non-believers will never slow us evangelists down. sorry we are here to stay buddy. and oh btw, there would be a very remote chance that an evangelist would leave a STACK of tracts in a public bathroom…besides there are plenty more where those came from. have a blessed day sir!
So, the honorary sold-out, on-fire encourager award, The Inspy, goes to… AZOU! Congratulations!
WAIT! DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A TRACT CALLED THE “POOPER PEEPER” THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY TAPE TO THE BATHROOM WALL? CLICK HERE TO SEE IT! (Thanks again, Azou. I almost forgot about it.)
