Would you send a first grader to high school? You understand that such a child doesn’t have the background and isn’t prepared for instruction at this level. Yet do you begin evangelism with a presentation of the propositional truth claims of Christianity in general or your church in particular? Perhaps there was a time when the cultural background was strong enough to support such an approach, but that is no longer so. Until you know otherwise, don’t assume anything, and speak to the spiritual longings of every human heart, to know that they are not their own source and fulfillment, and to find a grid of reference to deal with the moments of transcendence they experience.
