The following are some more stories of people who have been blessed by the ministry of Website Evangelism. While setting out to reach the lost, it has become apparent that this ministry is destined to touch the lives of Christians too. All Glory to God for what he is doing.
You might recognise the following. It was written before we had the Internet and email.
“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom you believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that plants any thing, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase. Now he that plants and he that waters are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are laborers together with God: you are God's husbandry, you are God's building.” UNDER THE INSPIRATAION OF GOD (1 Corinthians 3:5-9)
Two testimonies from people who visited our site www.istherelifeafterdeath.net
1. "I thank you for all you have done my life has been changed from this point forward"
2. "thank God I found this while browsing the internet. It made me realize I was bound for hell but I now have hope."
The following person sent two emails. One after the had done the Good Person Test and another after a followup email.
First: “this was a very touching moment in my life I have been raised with Christian values but I would always sin. I thought I was saved until this test. I have sinned. A lot. But know I am a changed person because of the test. I am truley happy. Thank you for all you have done.”
Second: “Thanks for responding, I have always been intrigued by the thought of 2012 and "the end of the world" I had just stumbled upon this sight where I found the god test. I did look up Philippians 1:6 (being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.) and I couldn't agree more with it. Thanks” Brad
The following testimony is a reminder of the Scripture which says, "The Fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom."
"Your website totally stirred fear into my heart and made my eyes well with tears. the test made me realize that I have been WAY too lost in my life and that I took all my blessings for granted and closed my heart away from God.. if someone ever did that to me, i would be very hurt but looking back on what i have learned, God never left me alone nor shun me away.. he was always there, waiting for me to come back to him and put my faith in him. i wish to come back and be a good servant of the Lord.. i will do my best and i won't let a day pass without me doing my best to do the right thing. please pray for me.. your prayers are greatly appreciated.. thank you for this test.."
“You have a great website and a unique way of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm sure there are many who will go there and look at it and be intrigued by the questions and want to know their own answers. I am a Christian but I think this is a good way to present this to people who might otherwise turn away from it.” Cheryl
The next response is in two parts. The first response shows how some Christians struggle with speaking about hell when presenting the gospel. The second shows two things: first, that with teaching, people can be helped to see the way Jesus preached the gospel - law to the proud and grace to the humble; secondly it shows a very humble and teachable spirit in this young person who really wants to grow in God.
First: “Change your website. It sends the wrong message. Instilling fear in people isn't the best route to get them to love God. Christ's number one commandment is: Love. That's the right path.”
Second: “What an incredible message you have sent me! In all honesty, I was not expecting such a long, detailed description of your reasoning behind the website [does not know the author of the email very well], but I appreciate it greatly. It has helped me understand your motives behind emphasizing the true dangers of hell.
I myself am only ........., and I know I have a lot more to learn about Christianity. Sometimes I wonder if this world influences my beliefs and waters them down a bit. It makes me sad, when I think about the newer generations of young Christians who don't see the necessity of church, or the necessity of living a disciplined life. It makes me truly sad when people flippantly use God's name in vain or laugh off homosexuality as something Christian bigots just need to "get over already."
You bring up many good points, and I didn't find one thing I disagreed with in your email. I guess my point is, so often Christians send the wrong message to nonbelievers and I've been trying to change that in my personal lifestyle……. Thank you again for taking the time to email me. It was greatly appreciated” Tessa
Short message says it all.
Thank you so much....this website saved me. I was a backslid christian, thank you for this website, it has saved my life and put me back on the right track. God bless you all. Gary
From someone who had strayed from the Lord.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation, I have just this year returned to God's house and I am trying to be a better Christian. You made me see that I truly need to be aware each and every moment of the day about my actions and you have just impressed on me more that I need to read daily scriptures. Thank you, God Bless You,” Karen
The following response came from a person in a management position in an Arab TV station. He sent two emails on official business email letterhead. In the second one he said he was going to start praying for his boss.
“Dear Brother/Sister, I have just been touched in the name of the lord and I welcome Jesus in my life and Change for good. I want to surrender my life for him and turn away form sins IN JESUS NAME AMEN” Kept Anonymous by us
The following is from someone who was confused about the 144,000 in Revelation.
“Thanks for the reply to my queries; nothing you have said is unclear, in fact it is quite lucid. I now understand that I don't have to be part of the chosen Israelites to gain acceptance into Heaven…… Thanks for listening.” Roger
The following is from someone who believes that everyone will be saved and that the lake of fire is a purifying fire through which all unrepentant sinners will pass before going to heaven. This person was told they had been deceived by false doctrine. Here is their response...
“Just a quick reply at this time, but certainly more to come in a few days. Let me thank you for taking the time to read my email and write back. It was truly a joy to receive your comments and a marvelous way in which you treated each line, thought and statement I had written. The reality of just that alone, blessed my soul.” Robert
From someone who had a good look at themselves through the light of God's moral law to see them self as God sees them.
“i took your test...i found myself sinful to a great extent...what can i do to redeem my faults? please suggest...” Prathyusha
The following was in response to an explanation that was given of creation to someone searching for truth. This person is an environmental consultant and a new Christian (just before coming to the site). He wrote several times. The following are excerpts from two different emails he sent.
First: “I have to say I am very happy I sent you that e-mail a while back. There is no one here who will acctually have a debate like this with me. It is great to find someone who does not get angry and will present an actual response. This is good for me. I cannot wait to see your full response.”
After the full response (had had sent a partial response) he wrote…
Second: “Wow, I mean that Wow. I have made an initial run through your response and honestly I feel a bit silly. I never thought of things this way. At first read it makes alot of sense. I have to go back and re-read it so that I can obsorbe this info. I am also looking forward to reading all of the bible passages you reference with these questions on my mind. It has been a real pleasure exchanging ideas with you and I hope you will update me on the new sites you create in the future. Feel free to write any time.” Anon
The following was part of a response from a youth pastor.
"To be honest I stumbled upon your site ready to argue with you about the world ending in 2012, but what I have found is a very well rounded, and solid view of scripture, Thanks for taking the time and effort into putting this together, I think that it will help untold lives. Blessings." Joshua
From a curious, repentant Christian (this is a guest book entry)
I'm a Christian and have been for a while. I found your site just out of curiosity about 2012 and the Mayan calender just wanted to learn about. Though I don't necessarily believe that that is the day the world will end, your site was very educational of that veiw. But I want to let you know - and I just have to praise the Lord - your site has led convicted me. I've been under conviction for a while and have been ignoring the Holy Spirit. After seeing some things on your site I couldn't bear it anymore. I spent time in prayer - right here at my computer - begging the Lord to forgive my sins. I'm so guilty but God is so good. Just by bringing my guilt to Him and admitting it I know He has paid my debt. His mercy is so overwhelming. I want to thank you for being a tool God has used to bring me back to Him. God Bless you and I pray that this site touches others the way it has touched me! Shea
From someone struggling to break free of a false religion
“i believe in jesus... i want to become a part for him... but my parents are hindus...i obeys them to go to prayer of hindus...im helpless...what should i do? “
From a wife praying for her husband
My husband was up early this morning on the laptop...Naturally, I thought he was looking at the bad things he usually looks at on the net....BUT...When I checked the history, I came up with your site! WHAT A BLESSING! Ive been praying for him to REALLY come to God. He goes to church but then comes home and curses me and our children. Such a miserable man!! But when I seen this website....then maybe the Lord is answering my prayers after all. Please keep my family in your prayers!! I am so blessed to know Jesus Christ. I know that I fall short every day but I ask for forgiveness and I try to do better everyday for God!! Thank you so much for allowing me to share this with you...
