The Master's Harvest

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," - Matt 28:19

The Master's Harvest

News Letter #13

Hello,

On August 7th, 2016 we completed the Ulster County Fair at Ulster, New York.  We talked to 465 people over 6 days.  
We met a Muslim woman who came back for a second conversation.  She was raised Muslim, but tried Mormonism as well.
She had been abused when a child and was wandering from religion to religion.
She eagerly took a “Why Does God Allow Suffering? and “Why Christianity”, both by Ray Comfort at LivingWaters.com
We met a spiritualist who believes god is love, pure love, and nothing else. I talked to him for 30 minutes and got nowhere.
Pastor Harris asked the spiritualist “would a father would discipline his son?”  The spiritualist left after that question.
Pastor Harris put together a “Good Person Test for Those Who Do Not Believe the Bible”.  A copy is attached below.
We used this very effectively to talk to other people who thought humans make morality.
We talked to many atheists who also could not pass this version of the “Are You a Good Person? test.
 
We met several Jewish people who believed that oral tradition supersedes the Torah.
And one did not believe the Torah at all, and though she called herself “a Jew”, did not follow the religion.
Several Jewish people said the 9th commandment is about slander, not bearing false witness.
 
We talked to several Roman Catholics and gave them the handout “Bible Verses – Salvation by Grace”.  A copy is below.
One woman talked at length with my daughter and grew very concerned that her works would not save her.
She asked “How are you saved?” and the answer from Matthew 19:25-26 was very reassuring.
She agreed that she wanted her salvation to rest on God and not man and thanked my daughter sincerely as she left.
We are listening to a book “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist” by by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek.
I highly recommend it if you want to talk to people who do not believe in God.  It can be found at:
We will need the most help at the Addison County Fair (VT), Hopkinton Fair (NH), and the Deerfield Fair (NH).
If you are planing to join us at a fair, those 3 fairs will have the most activity and opportunity to learn and practice.
 
God Bless,
