Two Requirements for Effective Witnessing

“It must always be remembered that the first requirement for effective witnessing is that the position defended be intelligible…

The second requirement for effective witnessing is that he to whom the witness is given must be shown why he should forsake his own position and accept that which is offered him… Why should the unbeliever change his position if he is not shown that it is wrong? Why should he exchange his position for that of Christianity if the one who asks him to change is actually encouraging him in thinking that he is right?”

(Van Til, The Defense of the Faith, 237)
