College Mission

I was on college mission all last week – a week of evangelism based at Hume Presbyterian in the northern suburbs (near Melbourne airport). It was a great week, with a lot of doorknocking and speaking to people at local bustops – particularly Muslims and Italian Roman Catholics. The candidates were energetic and engaged, and we were perhaps all surprised at how ready people were to speak with us.

Lesson learned: the doctrines of the atonement, justification and assurance are still as vital and relevant as ever!

It never ceases to amaze me that most people think:

1. they are going to heaven – even the athiests;

2. they get to heaven by being good;

3. they have done bad, but the good outweighs the bad;

4. that God agrees with their view of things.
