Bad News First...Then the Good News

"Francis Schaeffer was once asked the question, 'What would you do if you met a really modern man on a train and you had just an hour to talk to him about the gospel?' He replied, 'I've said over and over, I would spend 45-50 minutes on the negative, to really show him his dilemma---that he is morally dead---then I'd take 10-15 minutes to preach the Gospel. I believe that much of our evangelistic and personal work today is not clear simply because we are too anxious to get to the answer without having a man realize the real cause of his sickness, which is true moral guilt (and not just psychological guilt feelings) in the presence of God.' You will find as people begin to grasp the significance of God as creator and man as the sinful creature, you can explain in a direct and most powerful way who Christ is."
