Let's Face It - We're Outnumbered

Crowd of people.

Every serious Christian knows he has one central problem: how to obey the great commission. The agenda that God gave Adam was to manage the planet. Unfortunately, he flunked Management 101.

Christ gave us a much simpler agenda: to witness to everyone we can and make disciples of those who respond to that witness. He said we would be grossly outnumbered, but for us to do our best.

Most evangelism instructors say that the best way is to sit down and have a long "dialog" with each one. Take time to be their friend, get involved in their lives, play golf with them, feed their dog when they are on vacation, and eventually you will earn the right to present the gospel.

If he accepts, the angels rejoice over that one. But what about the other 100,000 people a day who are dropping into hell without even hearing the gospel? Should we just ignore them, if there is a way to at least invade their lives with a simple witness of the gospel?

Jack Chick says: "NO!" Fifty years ago, as a new Christian, he was burdened with this most important of all problems. He knew from his work as a syndicated cartoonist that there was a powerful way to get people’s attention: cartoons. His training in acting had honed his storytelling skills. He saw that almost no one could resist a good story in cartoon format. Today, there are countless testimonies in the Chick Publication files of suicides prevented, druggies freed, families restored and lives turned right side up after being challenged with the no-nonsense gospel in a Chick tract.

Serious Bible believers really want to witness to "every creature." But there are too many creatures. Even if we were "independently wealthy" and don’t have to work for a living, we would not have time to witness to all of them. "Well," you say, "most of them don’t want to hear the gospel anyway." That’s just an excuse to ignore the problem, not solve it. We are still obligated to share our witness.

Getting them to decide for Christ is not our responsibility. We only must deliver the message. They may make a split-second decision for or against the gospel but by delivering the message we have done our job: to be a witness that brings them to that decision.

With Chick tracts, you don’t have to worry about people rejecting a tract. It happens, but it is rare. Most people love them. They say, "THANKS!" and best of all they actually read them. And they get the gospel message, like it or not.

Sometimes they are convicted, sometimes they are mad because they have succeeded in keeping God out of their minds and suddenly somebody snuck Him in. We may be outnumbered, but with tracts, we can get the gospel to a lot more of them. If we plant more seed, God can give a bigger increase.

Here are some examples of how the ten seconds it takes to pass someone a tract (or plant it somewhere) paid off for eternity:

I WAS GIVEN a "FLIGHT 144" tract by a patient. I felt myself to be a "good" person by world standards. I kept re-reading the tract. I became a Christian three months ago. I now give a tract to every patient. Email

When I was in the 4th grade I FOUND your tract "THIS WAS YOUR LIFE!" That tract supernaturally changed my life and opened my eyes to the life of God and how to escape eternal punishment in hell. For the last 20 years, I have preached the gospel full-time. Thank you for your faithfulness to Christ.C.C.D.  Springfield, IL

Over twenty years ago my brother and his wife GAVE ME several of your tracts. After reading "THIS WAS YOUR LIFE!" the Holy Spirit convicted me so strongly that I knelt down at the foot of the bed and repented of my sins and confessed Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Alabama

"The first time I SAW one of your tracts was in my child’s Halloween candy sack. "THIS WAS YOUR LIFE!" I can honestly say, changed my life. It was a step that led to salvation… Praise God!" Parent

I FOUND "THIS WAS YOUR LIFE" on the floor of a Bank when I was seven. I got saved when I was 15. You discipled me with your tracts and comic books as a teenager. Thank you for your love and obedience to the Lord and your urgency for the unsaved.  D  M, Lomita, CA

I USED the tract "THE EXECUTION" in a small congregation. Two boys 15 and 14 years old found the Lord. Is there any greater joy than this? Email

I FOUND "HI THERE" in a pile of trash in a construction site I was working at as a security guard. I read it, then began to read the Bible. I rejected the Mormon Church and asked the Real Jesus Christ into my heart. CK Boron, CA

I am 14 years old. After reading the tract "HI THERE," I HAVE REPENTED and made Jesus Christ the Lord and Saviour of my life. I wish to serve him and tell my friends about him. South Africa
