I’m about to go offline for a few days, so I thought I’d leave a couple of questions on here for discussion.
First, what prompted the recent discussions about law and gospel was my post about Rico Tice’s talk at the London Men’s Convention last Saturday, in which one of Rico’s main points was that we should be looking to get the Bible open with non-Christians. It was a friend reading Psalm 103:13-17 with him that brought Rico to faith, and he is a fervent advocate of using Mark’s gospel in evangelism.
So my question is this: given the opportunity to look at the Bible with a non-believer, what text(s) do you think you’d go for? Please share the passages you’d choose, and if you have any particular reasons for your choice then do please share these as well.
