Quick Tip - Don't Defend God

Many of the souls to whom I evangelize complain about things that happen on this earth and use them as reasons to reject God. They may think life is unfair, that too many bad that happen, that Christians are mean, that God has lost control of the world, or whatever. When you hear it, resist the urge to defend God. He doesn't need it. God reminds us that they can't possibly understand His ways until they know Jesus. Instead of defending God, listen, imagine God loving them and seeking them out. Respond with some love and compassion. Speak the tender scriptures of the Gospel and invite them to meet the loving Savior whose mercy is everlasting.
