Watch The World's Greatest Crime and use this as a study guide on your own, or with your small group.

 

There is an urgency attached to the Gospel. As believers, we hold the keys to eternity. We know The Truth that will set people free. We know that Jesus is the ONLY way to eternal salvation. Romans 10:14 says, "how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him?" It’s our job to share the Gospel. It’s our job to proclaim the Good News. When we stay quiet, we are like the one who doesn't “hold back those stumbling to the slaughter” (Proverbs 24 :11). Our silence is the greatest crime we could ever commit. And it’s one for which we will be held responsible.
