Take advantage of the quarantine to learn more about the case for God’s existence, the reliability of the Bible and the nature of the Christian worldview
In this video from a message delivered at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, J. Warner Wallace describes the importance of “jury selection” for Christians who want to effectively share Christianity with the people in their lives. How can principles of jury selection help believers better communicate the Christian worldview? Can good “jury selection” help us to identify which approach we should take with people? All believers must think more carefully about the people they are trying to reach as described in the book, Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith.
If you want to be an effective Christian Case Maker, get prepared, examine the evidence, and do your homework. But don’t forget the most important part: select your jury carefully.
1. Why is jury selection so important in criminal trials?
2. What are the attributes of good jurors?
3. List the four categories of potential jurors in criminal trials, then list the four categories of “jurors” related to evangelism:
4. Think about the people in your immediate family. Make a list. Which categories do you think describe your loved ones best?
5. Think about ALL the people in your life. Who do you know in Category 4? Write down that person’s name. How can you pray for that person? Commit to praying regularly.
