sharing the gospelAn expert in personal evangelism acknowledges that many Christians have been silenced in sharing the gospel for fear of being accused as intolerant – but there's hope, he says.

The current politically correct culture does make it difficult for people of faith to stand and share what they believe, according to Dr. Bo Rice. The assistant professor of evangelism and preaching at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary encourages believers to be faithful, rather than fearful. A good place to start, he recommends, is by being more intentional about building relationships with non-Christians.

"We've got to constantly look for ways for our lives to be on mission and our lives to make an impact in this society and the culture around us," he tells OneNewsNow. "If we're Christians and yet we have no contact with the lost world, then we're failing at the Great Commission."

Rice contends God has given believers everything they need to make disciples for Christ.

"When we get more serious about making friends and building relationships with the world around us, I truly believe – because of the Holy Spirit [living] inside of us and ... going out before us – God is going to give us opportunities, he's going to open the door for us to be able to share the truth of the gospel," says the Christian educator.

Rice reminds Christians that the most powerful thing they might share with a non-believer is their personal testimony of how Christ has changed them.
