How should a Christian talk with someone of another religion? Well, first of all, do so with gentleness and respect (1 Peter:3:15). Here are some more pointers:
When sharing your faith with non-Christians, it is helpful to have a rudimentary knowledge of the world’s major religions. You don’t need to become a professor of comparative religion, but become acquainted with the basic tenets of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, New Age thought, etc.
Also, it is imperative that you explain why you do not believe that all religions lead to God (Jeremiah 14:22; again, it is crucial that you give the reason for the hope that you have this with gentleness and respect). The various world religions make divergent claims about ultimate reality and portray Jesus as just another great teacher. As Christians, we ought to know that Jesus clearly claimed to be the unique Son of God (one of the three Persons that make up our triune Lord) and that salvation comes from placing our trust in Him alone.
But most of all, let the Lord’s light shine through you and love on everyone with ferocity!
I love you, Lord Jesus. You are my King, my Father, my Rock, my Love, my Life. I’m desperate for you, Abba. I praise you with all my heart, soul and mind. Thank you for my life, thank you for loving me, thank you for saving me, Father God. Amen.
Have you decided to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior?
Would you like to have a deeply intimate, eternal relationship with your Creator – the One Who loves you unconditionally? Reach out to Him in your own words or use the following prayer:
I want to turn away from my sins. I believe Jesus died in my place on the cross. I believe that He rose from the dead and I desire to place my trust in Him as my Savior and the Lord of my life. Thank you for forgiving me and accepting me into Your family, Father God. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
