Judgmental, Bigoted, Homophobic, Elitist, and Hypocritical (The World’s Perception of Christians)

One of the most difficult groups to bring the Gospel to right now is young adults. Fr. Mike proposes that it’s not a lack of time or interest preventing them from receiving the Good News—it’s their perception of Christianity.

How can anyone evangelize in a culture so opposed to Jesus? We need to meet a hurting world where it is at and bring it the only medicine that will heal it.

Today’s video is an excerpt from “The 99, A New System for Evangelization.”
