What to do when a person says…

  • But what if I sin?
    • Confess it immediately. (1 John 1:9)
  • But I’m not sure I want to get too involved.
    • You can’t be a part-time Christian. (Luke 9:62)
  • But being a Christian sounds like it’s boring.
    • Jesus gives abundant life. (John 10:10)
  • But I like the way I’m living.
    • What will you gain? (Mark 8:36)
  • But I believe you get to heaven by doing good deeds.
    • Good deeds are the result of salvation, not the cause of it. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
  • But the Bible doesn’t make sense to me.
    • God will help you see. (2 Corinthians 2:14-16)
  • But what if people make fun of me?
    • Do not be ashamed. (Romans 1:16)
  • But being a Christian sounds too hard.
    • Have you considered the alternative? (Luke 16:19-31
  • But God won’t really send people to hell, will He?
    • He wants to save us. (2 Peter 3:9)
  • But I just can’t leave my friends.
    • Mark 8:34-35
  • But I just cannot forgive others.
    • You can. (Philippians 4:13)
  • But I come from a Christian family.
    • You must be born again. (John 3:3)
  • But you just don’t know how bad I’ve been.
    • Jesus came to save us all. (1 Timothy 1:15)
  • But I’ve got some really bad habits.
    • You will be a brand-new person! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • But what’s so bad about not accepting Christ?
    • There is no other way. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)
