Reading Time: 9 minutes Hi and welcome back! We’re quickly approaching the end of our Beach Reach training. Now, our trainers need us to know how to perform follow-up with our sales marks. Whether we failed or succeeded — though, let’s be honest here, we largely utterly failed — to make any sales, follow-up is critically important to our […]
Reading Time: 8 minutes Today, let’s see how earnest SBC evangelists learn to use transactional small talk to open the door to a sale, at least in theory.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday, we took our first sneak peek at various statistics that will be formally released in the 2021 Annual Report of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) (archive link here). And oh boy, their numbers were not good. Not at all, nope. But then, various SBC leaders tried their darndest, bless their li’l cotton socks, […]
Reading Time: 11 minutes Today, I’ll tell you what happened the night I finally lost my fear of Hell.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Last week, the Duggar clown car family hit the headlines again. Unsurprisingly, those headlines centered on the arrest of family scion Josh Duggar. Federal authorities charged him with possessing child pornography. Slowly, news has been trickling out about what his father, Jim Bob Duggar, knew and how he handled his eldest son’s impending arrest. I wasn’t at all surprised to hear about his reactions, either. His family struggles hard these days — not with substantively addressing Josh Duggar’s sickening perversion and degeneracy, no, but rather with protecting their family’s two increasingly tainted brands. Today, I’ll show you what the Duggar brand is and how the Duggar patriarch is desperately trying to protect it from that taint.
Reading Time: 10 minutes This past week, we had a really good time examining Brett McCracken’s post on The Gospel Coalition (TGC) (archive link). In it, he accidentally demonstrated how very little he understands of deconversion. He also offered up what might be the three most ridiculous reasons ever concocted to stick with Christianity. We covered the first and second of those already. Today, we’ll tackle his third reason: ‘bespoke spirituality’s loneliness.’ Gosh, ya’ll, the suspense is killing me! Will a TRUE CHRISTIAN™ finally manage to win his tribe’s beloved game of Last Ideology Standing? We’ll find out today.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Today, let me show you the Christian salesman who insists we must try his product before he’ll even come close to considering our deconversion valid — and why we do not actually need to try every flavor of Christianity first before deciding it’s not for us.
Reading Time: 7 minutes I can see why they worry at those three bits of pseudo-evidence like activated terriers. What they actually do have, they very logically never want to discuss with non-believers. Today, let me show you the real evidence Christians actually have — and how that works out for them.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Today, let me show you how toxic Christians resort to blame games when they realize they’ve backed themselves into a corner for lack of evidence.
Reading Time: 10 minutes It ought to disturb non-Christians to know about the sheer amount of advice that Christians make available for free online about overcoming evangelism objections. Worse, Christians phrase this advice exactly as such. Today, let me show you some of the stone-cold salesmanship practiced around evangelism — and why that’s actually not a bad thing for Christians.
