  1. Bill, 

    Why do you speak of Jesus rather than God?

     

     

    • Hey Alex,

      I encourage people to speak of Jesus rather than just “God” b/c Jesus is specific and personal.  He remains very attractive to religious as well as irreligious people.  Plus, He is the door and the way, so the more I can have people engage with Him, the more seeds I can plant.
