1. Paul Sonderman

    I hadn’t noticed but since you mention it, the last couple of trips I’ve taken, I’ve not seen tracts. The only unsolicited biblical verses I’ve gotten lately were left by door to door JW.

    I always wondered to what extent people respond to tracts? I assumed they made the “circular file” more than were actually read, but I read them from time to time and a timely reminder was welcome indeed.

    I had forgotten all about once ubiquitous Gospel tracts.



  2. I see plenty of tracts handed out, mostly by Baptist and small Pentecostal churches. The Baptists try and get you to read part of their tract out loud, and if you do they say, you will go to Heaven. It is what you have said Polycarp is Easy Beliefism. Last year I read out the tract three times in two weeks, but I knew just parroting a bunch of words will not get you into Heaven.


  3. I put lots of tracks out in the Media Center – I try to get different themed ones – not just the Four Spiritual Laws.

    AND they get taken by the fist full which is why I keep putting them out.

    I will admit to never having looked in most of them – just knowing that they were filling a need to someone somewhere.

    I’ve never understood the sinner’s prayer yet I’ve seen it sooooo many times. I always wonder what happened to Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved!

  4. Henry

    I’d just like to pass on another way to help spread the gospel and it’s simply this:-

    Include a link to an online gospel tract (e.g. http://www.freecartoontract.com/animation) as part of your email signature.

    An email signature is a piece of customizable HTML or text that most email applications will allow you to add to all your outgoing emails. For example, it commonly contains name and contact details – but it could also (of course) contain a link to a gospel tract.

    For example, it might say something like, “p.s. you might like this gospel cartoon …” or “p.s. have you seen this?”.


  5. Amen to that NT. I have yet to read the ‘sinner’s prayer’ in the Bible!


  6. Bitsy, we have tracts in our entry way to our sanctuary, and feel that they are valuable to many.
