That’s an encouraging statistic, David Burton said, because if no one’s responding keep trying — eventually they will. The problem is so few people are trying to share their faith, often because they don’t know how he said.

Mature Christians need to hear solid food from the pulpit — they need to be taught the truths of their faith and be equipped in how to share it, he said.
