An atheist’s view

Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples…” (Matthew 28.19a)

We know those words of Jesus. We’ve heard them, read them, and repeated them many times before. Yet, among many Christians I meet, evangelizing seems to be a low priority, ranking way below yard work and trash pick-up.

Maybe you don’t consider witnessing as that important. Maybe you don’t feel worthy or proficient to tell others about Jesus Christ. Maybe you feel you don’t have the time.

In this video, Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller fame), a professed atheist, offers some valuable insight into evangelism. We Christians can learn a lot, sometimes, simply by listening to people.

Please watch the video here.

I would like to hear your comments.

  1. This video is great. I’ve seen it traveling around the Christian blogophere. I’m so glad people are seeing it – as many of us need to see it as possible. How convicting to have a lecture on evangelism and proselytizing (what a *dirty* word!) from an atheist! And look, he’s not scary at all, like we imagine atheists to be.

  2. They’re just people. Christians are so easily intimidated and offended when someone questions what they believe. Thanks for the comments and I really like your blog!
