  • TO GOD OTHER THANFAITH IN JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:06:58.641 --> 00:07:01.310
  • WHAT YOU'RE REALLY SAYING IS
  • 00:07:01.344 --> 00:07:02.845
  • JESUS CHRIST WAS LYING,
  • 00:07:02.879 --> 00:07:05.548

  • AN AMBASSADOR IN PAUL'S DAY
  • 00:11:51.767 --> 00:11:54.470
  • WAS SOMEBODY WHO WAS APPOINTED
  • 00:11:54.503 --> 00:11:56.272
  • BY THE KING TO GOTO A FOREIGN COUNTRY
  • 00:11:56.305 --> 00:11:59.408

  • TO MAKE PEOPLE AWAREOF HIS JUDGMENTS.
  • 00:12:07.216 --> 00:12:10.419
  • YOU SEE, THE JOBOF AN AMBASSADOR
  • 00:12:10.452 --> 00:12:12.121
  • WAS NOT TO MAKE UPTHE MESSAGE HIMSELF.
  • 00:12:12.154 --> 00:12:14.957
  • THE AMBASSADOR DID NOTFORMULATE THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:12:14.990 --> 00:12:17.293
  • HE SIMPLY DELIVERED THE MESSAGE

  • HAS GIVE YOU THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:12:40.983 --> 00:12:43.052
  • TO SHARE WITH OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:43.085 --> 00:12:44.787
  • LET ME ASK YOU,
  • 00:12:44.820 --> 00:12:45.621
  • IF YOU HAD A FRIEND,
  • 00:12:45.654 --> 00:12:47.156
  • IF YOU HAD A SON OR DAUGHTER,
  • 00:12:47.189 --> 00:12:48.224
  • A GRANDCHILD, WHO CAME TO YOU
  • 00:12:48.257 --> 00:12:49.525
  • AND SAID, HOW CAN IBECOME A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:12:49.558 --> 00:12:52.361
  • DO YOU FEEL CONFIDENT THAT YOU
  • 00:12:52.394 --> 00:12:54.830
  • COULD LEAD SOMEBODY TO CHRIST?
  • 00:12:54.864 --> 00:12:57.266
  • IF SOMEBODY ASKED YOU, HOWDO I BECOME A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:12:57.299 --> 00:13:00.836
  • WOULD YOU KNOW HOWTO SHARE THAT MESSAGE
  • 00:13:00.870 --> 00:13:03.172
  • WITH SOMEBODY AND ACTUALLY LEAD
  • 00:13:03.205 --> 00:13:05.007
  • THAT PERSON TO CHRIST?
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:06.141
  • GOD SAID, I'M DEPENDING ON YOU.
  • 00:13:06.175 --> 00:13:07.977
  • I'VE GIVEN YOU THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:09.445
  • I'VE ENTRUSTED IT TO YOU,
  • 00:13:09.478 --> 00:13:11.013
  • IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:13:11.046 --> 00:13:12.848
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE MESSAGE IS?
  • 00:13:12.882 --> 00:13:15.851
  • IF NOT, LET ME SHARE WITH YOU
  • 00:13:15.885 --> 00:13:17.953
  • FOUR PARTS OF THIS MESSAGE
  • 00:13:17.987 --> 00:13:19.555
  • THAT HAVE TO BE COMMUNICATED
  • 00:13:19.588 --> 00:13:21.557
  • ON GOD'S BEHALF.
  • 00:13:21.590 --> 00:13:22.858
  • FIRST, ALL OF US HAVE SINNED.
  • 00:13:22.892 --> 00:13:25.327
  • WHEN I'M SHARINGTHE GOSPEL I SAY,
  • 00:13:25.361 --> 00:13:26.528
  • YOU KNOW, I'M GLADYOU WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:13:26.562 --> 00:13:28.430
  • HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:13:28.464 --> 00:13:29.732
  • TO BECOME A CHRISTIANTHERE'RE FOUR THINGS
  • 00:13:29.765 --> 00:13:31.700
  • YOU HAVE TO KNOW AND BELIEVE
  • 00:13:31.734 --> 00:13:33.035
  • WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART.
  • 00:13:33.068 --> 00:13:34.303
  • THE FIRST OF ALL,IS THE FIRST THING
  • 00:13:34.336 --> 00:13:35.938
  • IS THAT ALL OF US HAVE SINNED.
  • 00:13:35.971 --> 00:13:38.474
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, IN ROMANS3:23, "ALL OF US HAVE SINNED
  • 00:13:38.507 --> 00:13:43.078
  • "AND WE'VE COME SHORTOF THE GLORY OF GOD."
  • 00:13:43.112 --> 00:13:45.714
  • NOW, SIN IS ANYTHING WEDO THAT BREAKS GOD'S LAWS.
  • 00:13:45.748 --> 00:13:51.921
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYSWE HAVE ALL BROKEN
  • 00:13:51.954 --> 00:13:53.789
  • SOME OF GOD'S LAWS.
  • 00:13:53.822 --> 00:13:55.658
  • WE'RE ALL SINNERS.
  • 00:13:55.691 --> 00:13:57.192
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE'S NOTONE RIGHTEOUS AMONG US,
  • 00:13:57.226 --> 00:13:59.628
  • NO NOT EVEN ONE.
  • 00:13:59.662 --> 00:14:01.163
  • WE HAVE ALL SINNED
  • 00:14:01.196 --> 00:14:02.965
  • AND WE'VE ALL FALLEN SHORT
  • 00:14:02.998 --> 00:14:04.400
  • OF THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:14:04.433 --> 00:14:06.335
  • NOW THE FACT IS,I MAY HAVE SINNED
  • 00:14:06.368 --> 00:14:08.771
  • MORE THAN YOU HAVE,
  • 00:14:08.804 --> 00:14:10.205
  • AND YOU MAY HAVE SINNED
  • 00:14:10.239 --> 00:14:11.206
  • MORE THAN ADOLF HITLER HAS,
  • 00:14:11.240 --> 00:14:13.008
  • BUT IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:14:13.042 --> 00:14:14.243
  • BECAUSE WE'VE ALL FALLEN SHORT.
  • 00:14:14.276 --> 00:14:16.078
  • AS I TALK TO THE PERSON,I'LL USE THIS ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:14:16.111 --> 00:14:18.881
  • LET'S SAY I'MSPEAKING TO WALTER.
  • 00:14:18.914 --> 00:14:22.017
  • I SAY, WALTER LET'SJUST SUPPOSE THAT YOU
  • 00:14:22.051 --> 00:14:24.219
  • AND I DECIDED INA FIT OF INSANITY
  • 00:14:24.253 --> 00:14:26.622
  • THAT WE WERE GOING TOTRY TO SWIM TO HAWAII.
  • 00:14:26.655 --> 00:14:29.825
  • SO, WE GO OUT TO LOS ANGELES,
  • 00:14:29.858 --> 00:14:31.293
  • WE JUMP OFF THESANTA MONICA PIER
  • 00:14:31.327 --> 00:14:33.062
  • AND OFF WE GO SWIMMINGTOWARD HAWAII.
  • 00:14:33.095 --> 00:14:36.165
  • NOW, WALTER IS ABLE TOMAKE IT ABOUT 50 FEET,
  • 00:14:36.198 --> 00:14:39.768
  • AND THEN HE GIVESINTO EXHAUSTION
  • 00:14:39.802 --> 00:14:42.905
  • AND HE DROPS TO THE BOTTOM
  • 00:14:42.938 --> 00:14:44.373
  • OF THE PACIFICOCEAN LIKE A ROCK.
  • 00:14:44.406 --> 00:14:46.375
  • HE'S MADE IT 50 FEET.
  • 00:14:46.408 --> 00:14:48.510
  • BUT, YOU KNOW, I'MIN A LOT BETTER SHAPE
  • 00:14:48.544 --> 00:14:49.712
  • THAN WALTER IS (GROUP LAUGHING)
  • 00:14:49.745 --> 00:14:52.414
  • AND SO I KEEP SWIMMING
  • 00:14:52.448 --> 00:14:54.216
  • AND I KEEP SWIMMING
  • 00:14:54.249 --> 00:14:55.784
  • AND I KEEP SWIMMING,1500, 1600, 1700 MILES.
  • 00:14:55.818 --> 00:15:00.356
  • IN FACT, I CAN SEE THESHORELINE OF WAIKIKI
  • 00:15:00.389 --> 00:15:03.125
  • AND DIAMONDHEAD THERE.
  • 00:15:03.158 --> 00:15:04.626
  • IT'S IN VIEW, I'M THERE ALMOST,
  • 00:15:04.660 --> 00:15:07.429
  • BUT 50 FEET OUT I GIVE OUT
  • 00:15:07.463 --> 00:15:11.033
  • AND I SINK LIKE A ROCK.
  • 00:15:11.066 --> 00:15:13.035
  • NOW THE QUESTIONIS, WHICH ONE OF US
  • 00:15:13.068 --> 00:15:14.503
  • MADE IT TO HAWAII?
  • 00:15:14.536 --> 00:15:16.372
  • NEITHER ONE OF US DID.
  • 00:15:16.405 --> 00:15:18.073
  • YEAH, I MADE IT FURTHERTHAN WALTER DID,
  • 00:15:18.107 --> 00:15:20.142
  • BUT DOES THAT REALLY MATTER?
  • 00:15:20.175 --> 00:15:22.011
  • NO, WE BOTH FELLSHORT OF THE GOAL.
  • 00:15:22.044 --> 00:15:25.314
  • AND THAT'S WHAT PAUL MEANS
  • 00:15:25.347 --> 00:15:26.548
  • WHEN HE SAYS ALLOF US HAVE SINNED.
  • 00:15:26.582 --> 00:15:28.517
  • WE'VE ALL FALLEN SHORT
  • 00:15:28.550 --> 00:15:29.651
  • OF GOD'S PERFECT STANDARD.
  • 00:15:29.685 --> 00:15:32.588
  • WE'VE ALL FALLEN SHORT
  • 00:15:32.621 --> 00:15:34.289
  • OF THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:15:34.323 --> 00:15:36.358
  • THE SECOND POINT THATI TELL PEOPLE IS,
  • 00:15:36.392 --> 00:15:38.327
  • WE DESERVE TO BEPUNISHED FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:15:38.360 --> 00:15:40.596
  • ROMANS 6:23, "FOR THEWAGES OF SIN IS DEATH."
  • 00:15:40.629 --> 00:15:46.468
  • YOU KNOW, IN OUR LEGAL SYSTEM
  • 00:15:46.502 --> 00:15:49.872
  • I'LL SAY TO PEOPLE,IF YOU BREAK THE LAW
  • 00:15:49.905 --> 00:15:52.775
  • THERE'S A CONSEQUENCE
  • 00:15:52.808 --> 00:15:54.176
  • TO BREAKING THE LAW.
  • 00:15:54.209 --> 00:15:55.577
  • IF YOU'RE FOUND GUILTY OF THEFT
  • 00:15:55.611 --> 00:15:57.279
  • THE RESULT IS INCARCERATION.
  • 00:15:57.312 --> 00:15:59.314
  • IF YOU'RE FOUND GUILTY OF MURDER
  • 00:15:59.348 --> 00:16:00.649
  • THE RESULT CAN BETHE ELECTRIC CHAIR.
  • 00:16:00.682 --> 00:16:03.118
  • BUT, DISOBEDIENCEHAS ITS CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:16:03.152 --> 00:16:06.555
  • AND IT'S THE SAME WAY INGOD'S SYSTEM OF JUSTICE.
  • 00:16:06.588 --> 00:16:10.092
  • WE DESERVE TO BEPUNISHED FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:16:10.125 --> 00:16:13.829
  • BUT THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL
  • 00:16:13.862 --> 00:16:15.097
  • AND THIS IS THE THIRDPOINT, IS THAT CHRIST
  • 00:16:15.130 --> 00:16:18.400
  • DIED FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:16:18.434 --> 00:16:20.436
  • THIS IS THE ESSENCEOF THE GOSPEL MESSAGE.
  • 00:16:20.469 --> 00:16:22.404
  • CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:16:22.438 --> 00:16:24.440
  • ROMANS 5:8 SAYS, "BUTGOD DEMONSTRATES HIS LOVE
  • 00:16:24.473 --> 00:16:27.376
  • "FOR US AND THAT WHILEWE WERE YET SINNERS,
  • 00:16:27.409 --> 00:16:31.513
  • "CHRIST DIED FOR US."
  • 00:16:31.547 --> 00:16:35.084
  • WHEN JESUS, THE PERFECT SONOF GOD, DIED ON THE CROSS
  • 00:16:35.117 --> 00:16:39.922
  • IN SOME INEXPLICABLE WAY,
  • 00:16:39.955 --> 00:16:41.723
  • HE TOOK THE PUNISHMENT FROM GOD
  • 00:16:41.757 --> 00:16:44.726
  • THAT YOU AND IDESERVE FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:16:44.760 --> 00:16:49.131
  • AND I USE THIS ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:16:49.164 --> 00:16:50.632
  • TO HELP PEOPLE UNDERSTANDEXACTLY WHAT THAT MEANS.
  • 00:16:50.666 --> 00:16:54.937
  • A GIRL, 16 YEARSOLD, WAS ONE TIME
  • 00:16:54.970 --> 00:16:57.539
  • CONVICTED OF SPEEDING
  • 00:16:57.573 --> 00:16:59.408
  • AND SHE WAS BROUGHTINTO THE COURT.
  • 00:16:59.441 --> 00:17:01.276
  • SHE PLED GUILTY TO THE OFFENSE.
  • 00:17:01.310 --> 00:17:03.212
  • THE JUDGE SAID, OKAY,THE FINE IS EITHER $200.
  • 00:17:03.245 --> 00:17:06.515
  • SHE SAID I DON'T HAVE $200.
  • 00:17:06.548 --> 00:17:08.717
  • HE SAID OKAY, WELL THENTHE LAW REQUIRES ME
  • 00:17:08.750 --> 00:17:10.953
  • TO SENTENCE YOU TO30 DAYS IN JAIL.
  • 00:17:10.986 --> 00:17:14.723
  • EITHER PAY THE $200OR 30 DAYS IN JAIL.
  • 00:17:14.756 --> 00:17:19.328
  • SHE HAD VIOLATED THE LAW.
  • 00:17:19.361 --> 00:17:20.963
  • THOSE WERE THE CONSEQUENCESOF VIOLATING THE LAW.
  • 00:17:20.996 --> 00:17:23.732
  • BUT THEN THE JUDGE DIDSOMETHING VERY UNUSUAL.
  • 00:17:23.765 --> 00:17:26.535
  • HE STOOD UP FROMBEHIND THE BENCH,
  • 00:17:26.568 --> 00:17:28.737
  • HE TOOK OFF HIS JUDICIAL ROBE,
  • 00:17:28.770 --> 00:17:31.740
  • HE STEPPED DOWN TO THE BAILIFF,
  • 00:17:31.773 --> 00:17:33.575
  • REACHED INTO HIS WALLET
  • 00:17:33.609 --> 00:17:35.110
  • AND HE PULLED OUT $200 AND PAID
  • 00:17:35.144 --> 00:17:37.546
  • THE BAILIFF HIMSELF.
  • 00:17:37.579 --> 00:17:40.382
  • WHY WOULD A JUDGEDO SUCH A THING?
  • 00:17:40.415 --> 00:17:43.619
  • BECAUSE HE HAPPENED TO BETHE GIRL'S FATHER AS WELL.
  • 00:17:43.652 --> 00:17:47.956
  • THAT IS A PICTURE OFWHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR US.
  • 00:17:47.990 --> 00:17:51.026
  • THE BIBLE SAYS GODIS BOTH THE JUDGE
  • 00:17:51.059 --> 00:17:53.529
  • AND HE IS THE JUSTIFIER.
  • 00:17:53.562 --> 00:17:55.664
  • YES, GOD HAS DECLAREDUS GUILTY BEFORE HIM.
  • 00:17:55.697 --> 00:17:58.667
  • WE'RE ALL GUILTY,WE'RE ALL DESERVING
  • 00:17:58.700 --> 00:18:00.435
  • NOT OF 30 DAYS IN JAIL,BUT ETERNITY IN HELL.
  • 00:18:00.469 --> 00:18:03.939
  • WE'RE ALL GUILTY.
  • 00:18:03.972 --> 00:18:05.774
  • AND YET, GOD IN HIS MERCY,BECAUSE HE LOVES US,
  • 00:18:05.807 --> 00:18:08.744
  • HE STOOD UP, HE TOOKOFF HIS HEAVENLY ROBE,
  • 00:18:08.777 --> 00:18:12.447
  • HE CAME TO EARTH IN THEPERSON OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:18:12.481 --> 00:18:14.883
  • AND WHEN HE DIED ON THE CROSS
  • 00:18:14.917 --> 00:18:16.852
  • HE PAID THE PENALTYFOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:18:16.885 --> 00:18:20.455
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WEMEAN WHEN WE SAY
  • 00:18:20.489 --> 00:18:22.090
  • GOD DEMONSTRATED HIS LOVE FOR US
  • 00:18:22.124 --> 00:18:25.727
  • AND THAT WHILE WEWERE YET SINNERS
  • 00:18:25.761 --> 00:18:27.596
  • CHRIST DIED FOR US.
  • 00:18:27.629 --> 00:18:30.365
  • JESUS CHRIST PAID FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:18:30.399 --> 00:18:34.036
  • NOW THE FACT IS, YOU CAN BELIEVE
  • 00:18:34.069 --> 00:18:35.571
  • ALL THREE OF THOSE THINGS,
  • 00:18:35.604 --> 00:18:37.072
  • THAT YOU'VE SINNED, THATYOU DESERVE TO BE PUNISHED
  • 00:18:37.105 --> 00:18:39.708
  • FOR YOUR SINS, THATCHRIST DIED FOR YOUR SINS
  • 00:18:39.741 --> 00:18:42.344
  • AND STILL BE SEPARATED FROM GOD.
  • 00:18:42.377 --> 00:18:44.813
  • THERE'S A FOURTH THINGTHAT YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE
  • 00:18:44.846 --> 00:18:46.882
  • WITH ALL OF YOURHEART AND THAT IS
  • 00:18:46.915 --> 00:18:48.684
  • WE MUST INDIVIDUALLY RECEIVEGOD'S GIFT OF FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:18:48.717 --> 00:18:55.123
  • WE MUST INDIVIDUALLY RECEIVEGOD'S GIFT OF FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:18:55.157 --> 00:18:56.858
  • YOU SEE, A GIFT ISNOT REALLY A GIFT
  • 00:18:56.892 --> 00:19:00.195
  • UNLESS IT'S RECEIVED.
  • 00:19:00.229 --> 00:19:01.530
  • AND I USE THIS ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:19:01.563 --> 00:19:03.799
  • JOHN 1:12 SAYS, "BUT ASMANY AS RECEIVED HIM,
  • 00:19:03.832 --> 00:19:07.603
  • "TO THEM HE GAVETHE POWER TO BECOME
  • 00:19:07.636 --> 00:19:09.972
  • "THE SONS OF GOD, EVEN TO THOSE
  • 00:19:10.005 --> 00:19:12.107
  • "WHO BELIEVE ON HIS NAME."
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:14.343
  • YOU HAVE TO RECEIVETHE GIFT OF FORGIVENESS
  • 00:19:14.376 --> 00:19:16.778
  • FOR IT TO DO YOU ANY GOOD.
  • 00:19:16.812 --> 00:19:18.513
  • REMEMBER A FEWYEARS AGO, I'M SURE
  • 00:19:18.547 --> 00:19:20.616
  • YOU ALL ARE OPRAHWINFREY WATCHERS,
  • 00:19:20.649 --> 00:19:22.484
  • REMEMBER ON THEOPRAH WINFREY SHOW
  • 00:19:22.517 --> 00:19:24.319
  • ONE TIME WHEN SHE SURPRISED
  • 00:19:24.353 --> 00:19:26.054
  • HER STUDIO AUDIENCE AND GAVE
  • 00:19:26.088 --> 00:19:27.990
  • EVERYBODY IN THEAUDIENCE, 300 PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:28.023 --> 00:19:29.925
  • A BRAND NEW CAR.
  • 00:19:29.958 --> 00:19:32.227
  • EVERYBODY, MAN THEY WERE ELATED.
  • 00:19:32.261 --> 00:19:33.528
  • I MEAN, THEY'D JUSTCOME TO A TAPING
  • 00:19:33.562 --> 00:19:35.797
  • OF THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW
  • 00:19:35.831 --> 00:19:36.999
  • AND THE END UP WITHA BRAND NEW CAR.
  • 00:19:37.032 --> 00:19:38.400
  • THEY WERE ECSTATIC
  • 00:19:38.433 --> 00:19:39.668
  • UNTIL THEY CAME TO REALIZE
  • 00:19:39.701 --> 00:19:41.870
  • THAT THEY WEREGOING TO HAVE TO PAY
  • 00:19:41.903 --> 00:19:42.871
  • THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE TAX
  • 00:19:42.904 --> 00:19:45.140
  • ON THAT CAR THATOPRAH GAVE THEM.
  • 00:19:45.173 --> 00:19:47.876
  • AND THE TAX AMOUNTED TO$7500 FOR MOST PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:47.909 --> 00:19:53.749
  • NOW, MOST PEOPLE, MANY OF THEM,
  • 00:19:53.782 --> 00:19:55.384
  • COULD NOT COME UP WITH THE $7500
  • 00:19:55.417 --> 00:19:57.686
  • AND THEY WERE ABLETO ESCAPE THE TAX.
  • 00:19:57.719 --> 00:20:00.555
  • YOU KNOW HOW THEYESCAPED THE TAX?
  • 00:20:00.589 --> 00:20:02.758
  • BY NOT RECEIVING THE GIFT.
  • 00:20:02.791 --> 00:20:06.128
  • YOU SEE, THE INTERNALREVENUE SERVICE
  • 00:20:06.161 --> 00:20:07.562
  • HAS A PROVISION INITS CODE THAT SAYS
  • 00:20:07.596 --> 00:20:10.265
  • A GIFT IS NOT A GIFTUNLESS YOU RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:20:10.299 --> 00:20:15.470
  • AND THAT'S WHAT GOD SAYS
  • 00:20:15.504 --> 00:20:16.605
  • TO EACH ONE OF US.
  • 00:20:16.638 --> 00:20:17.873
  • HE SAYS I SENT CHRISTTO DIE FOR YOUR SINS.
  • 00:20:17.906 --> 00:20:20.075
  • I'M OFFERING YOU FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:20:20.108 --> 00:20:23.412
  • I'M OFFERING YOU AN ETERNITY
  • 00:20:23.445 --> 00:20:25.113
  • WITH ME IN HEAVEN,BUT IT'S A GIFT
  • 00:20:25.147 --> 00:20:28.884
  • AND IT DOESN'T BECOME A GIFT
  • 00:20:28.917 --> 00:20:30.585
  • UNTIL YOU RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:20:30.619 --> 00:20:32.988
  • AND WHEN I'VE FINISHEDSAYING THAT, I SAY
  • 00:20:33.021 --> 00:20:34.890
  • TO THE PERSON, DO YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:20:34.923 --> 00:20:36.825
  • WHAT I'VE BEEN SHARING WITH YOU?
  • 00:20:36.858 --> 00:20:38.927
  • IF THEY SAY NO IHAVE A QUESTION,
  • 00:20:38.960 --> 00:20:40.796
  • THEN I ANSWER THEIR QUESTION.
  • 00:20:40.829 --> 00:20:43.198
  • NO NEED PROCEEDING IF THEY HAVE

  • AN UNANSWERED QUESTIONIN THEIR MIND.
  • 00:20:45.033 --> 00:20:47.202
  • BUT, IF THEY SAY YES,I THINK I UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:20:47.235 --> 00:20:48.904
  • THEN I ASK THEM THE QUESTION,
  • 00:20:48.937 --> 00:20:51.173
  • WOULD YOU LIKE TORECEIVE GOD'S GIFT
  • 00:20:51.206 --> 00:20:53.608
  • OF FORGIVENESS INYOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW?

  • YES I WOULD.
  • 00:20:58.013 --> 00:21:00.649
  • SOMETIMES THEY'LL SAY NO,I'D LIKE TO THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:21:00.682 --> 00:21:02.351
  • THEN YOU CAN JUST SAY,
  • 00:21:02.384 --> 00:21:04.119
