Some Key Witnessing Questions To Help You Earnestly Contend For The Faith
When a Christian goes out into the world to share their faith, it is helpful to be ready with some thought-provoking questions to start up a meaningful conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You don’t need to ask any of the specific questions below but you should ask questions that will prompt the person you are speaking to, to think about what they believe, why they believe it, and how this relates to what the Bible says about such things. If you ask questions that will encourage the person to tell you where they are coming from spiritually, then you can best do your job of showing them what God would have them know about Himself, His laws and His plan of salvation.
A. Do you have a church home? … Where might that be? … What do they teach there about how to get to heaven?
B. Do you have any kind of spiritual belief? … Could you tell me something about it?
C. How do you know if what you believe is true? (share Proverbs 14:12, Matthew 7:13-14)
D. Do you know if your religion satisfies God? Perhaps it satisfies you, but do you know for sure if it satisfies God? (share Romans 10:3)
E. Do you believe in God? If they say no, you can ask: “Well then why do you think you are here on this earth?” (share 1 Corinthians 10:31)
F. What is sin? … The Bible says in 1John 3:4 “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” (share God’s law from Exodus 20:3-17, Deut 5:7-21).
G. Do you ever sin? … Would you call yourself a sinner? … When you sin, who are you sinning against? (share Romans 3:10,11,23)
H. To you, who is Jesus? … Do you know what Jesus said about himself? (share John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Colossians 1:16-17, Revelation 1:11&18)
I. Do you think there is a heaven or a hell? … Which do you think you will go to? … Why? (share 1 Cor 6:9, Rev 21:8)

K. What would you tell God if He asked you why He should let you into His heaven? (share Matt 7:22)

M. Do you know what it means to be born-again? (share John 3:3, 2 Cor 5:17)
N. What do you think God requires of us to get to heaven? (share Hebrews 12:14)
O. What does your religion teach about how we pay for our sins? … Do you know what the Bible says? (share Lev 17:11, 1Pet 3:18)
P. Do you know about God’s wonderful plan of salvation – that you can know for sure if you will be in heaven someday? (share Romans 8:1)
Q. What do you think this verse in the Bible means? (then show them appropriate verses for them to read, like Genesis 6:5, Psalm 5:4-5, 11:5-6, Jeremiah 17:9, Ezekiel 18:4, 36:26-27, Romans: 3:10-11, 3:23, 5:8, 6:23, 5:1, 10:9-13, 8:1, John 3:3, 14:6, Isaiah 59:1-4, 64:6, Revelation 20:15)

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
