5 Steps to Resolve Cognitive Dissonance


Three Open Prayer

Romans Road

Rom. 3:23 -> Rom. 6:23 -> (Rom. 5:8) -> Rom. 10:9 -> (Rom. 10:13)

Bill’s Technique:

Listening is key, evangelism is not about interrupting with your opinions

Don’t have the salvation verses memorized? Not a problem

Inside the front cover of your bible list the first verse address. Highlight each key verse. At the bottom of the page of the key verse write the verse number of the next key verse to read.

Example verse list: Rom. 6:23, John 3:3, John 14:6, Rom 10:9-11, 2 Cor 5:15

10 Commandments Technique -> Can bring people to understand their need for salvation

Are you a good person? (of course) Can we take a look at the 10 commandments? These are God’s standards for living a good life? Have you ever told a lie? (if not, they’re probably lying right now) What does that make you? A Liar. Have you ever stolen anything? Even something small? What does that make you? Thief. Have you ever committed adultery? Share Matt 5:28. Have you ever looked at a man/woman lustfully? That is adultery in your heart. You’ve admitted to in your own words me you’re thieving, lying, and have an adulterous heart. If you died today would God find you innocent or guilty? (guilty) Would you go to heaven or hell? (if they say heaven, they are breaking the second commandment of committing idolatry by making a false image of God by creating an image of God in their hearts that suits their own lifestyle rather than who God really is) Does this concern you? Let me show you how God sees you right now. Have them read John 3:36 (god’s wrath) But God doesn’t want to pour out his wrath on you. He wants to save you. Share the good news via scriptures about Jesus at this point and how they can be saved. (Do you want to face God on Judgment day knowing that you are guilty? Do you want to put your trust into Jesus so you can be saved from God’s wrath?) h”
