"I made the mistake of telling him I was not interested in his church. Now I became his project. He figured out a way to bring the gospel into every conversation.

He kept trying to find a way to get me to go to church, mostly by talking about the activities. One day he asked me if I liked American girls. I did not realize that this was a trick question until a few weeks later. When I got home from work one night two formally dressed girls were standing on my doorstep. I could tell by her accent that one of them was an American

I hope the lesson people are getting from this isn't "no means yet" or "don't worry, continuously asking non-member friends will work in the end".

Where is the rest of this story? It quit in the middle, and then went to ads, with no more pages.

Kind of an abrupt ending.

What a wonderful beginning ("bait") . . . and disappointing non-ending ("switch"). And so we now have to buy the book to hear the end of the story? Not nice.

Be Practical

Be practical; Essentials of the Christian faith .
1.The Trinity. While there is only one God, He exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
2. Human Depravity Every human is spiritually separated from God, totally incapable of saving himself. Without a new birth no one can enter life.
3. Christâs Virgin Birth. Jesus was born as a result of a miracle. Through the Virgin Birth, Jesus did not inherit a sin nature.
4. Inspiration of Scripture. Inerrancy of scripture. Godâs Unity.
5. There is only one God, uncreated creator of all else. Creation Ex Nihlio.
