The Best Question to Ask When Starting a Conversation About God

J. Warner Wallace blogged about a question that he has found to be very helpful in initiating a discussion on spiritual matters. It is a question he picked up from James Boccardo's book Unsilenced.  Wallace considers this question the most essential evangelistic question to ask:  What do you think happens when we die?

He has seen the value of this question in three ways:

1. It is diagnostic. The question will very quickly help you to understand the worldview of the person you are talking to.

2. It is disarming. Many people are willing to talk about this question because many people have given thought to it.

3. It is directed. It provides the foundation for talking about the human condition and the Gospel which provides the answer to the human condition.

Stand firm in Christ,
