Witnessing to a Hindu couple

Recently I have been spending some evenings with the local team on Mill Avenue in Tempe, Arizona near ASU. Often times we encounter drunk students and angry atheists, but we also meet people that are a joy to talk to .

This is an encounter I had with a really nice Hindu couple. They believed in reincarnation but I’m not sure how devout they were as Hindus. They were very open to the Gospel and listened intently to what I had to say. Notice near the end, the lady's response to my question of whether or not the reality of Hell concerned her. Her answer is exactly why we ask the question. I never got their names, but God knows them! Please pray for them.
Note: This is also another example of how you don't have to know all about a person's religion to be able to share your faith. By staying in the realm of the conscience using God's moral law (The Ten Commandments) we can bypass the arguments that might otherwise occur when trying to argue doctrine.

I just love the way you were kind and compassionate with this dear couple. Instead of making a decision that they probably wouldn't listen-you spoke to them. It sounds like you may have been the only person who ever told them about Jesus! Awesome!! Keep it up!

Thanks for the encouragement Jennifer. This encounter was a good example of bypassing the intellect (the place of argument) and arguing about differences and just getting to Law and Grace. It's what it's all about!
