SPOTTING AND REJECTING IDOLS

Slide12

OPTION 1 Idols: Why We Get Stuck pdf

By Paul Johnson, CNBC, 1 meetup, free printout

SUBJECTS COVERED:  CONFRONTING IDOLS // PRACTICAL WAYS TO DEAL WITH IDOLS

DESCRIPTIONS:   Paul Johnson does a great job leading a discussion about our idols that creep in and stagnate growth especially after baptism.  He writes with the idea in mind that the person you are working with is a future disciple maker.  Like most of Johnson’s material, it is easily understood by those with no faith background.  Use your judgement whether you will email or print out the pdf for the person you are working with or you will summarize and teach it yourself.  For more about Paul Johnson click here.
