Using Gospel Illusions
we'll use illusions to attract people to the booth or to start a
Most of the illusions we use require no skills, just follow the
instructions printed on the illusion.
Probably the most popular is the curved illusion gospel tract.
It is available in English and Spanish versions, and is covered
in detail on another web page. (Go
to the curved optical illusion page.)
Most of the illusions we use are gospel tracts you can give to
people after showing them the illusion.
If you'd like to use some of the illusions, watch how others use
them - or ask someone in the booth to show you how they work.
Purpose Is To Share The Gospel
The purpose of an illusion is to share the gospel. For example,
they can be useful when talking to a post modern. That is someone
who does not believe in truth. They'll say, "What you believe
is fine for you, but what I believe is... "
Whenever possible use the illusion to start a conversation about
the gospel. One way to do that is to follow the illusion with a
question such as, "What do you think? Can you always trust
what you see?"
They'll typically answer, "No." But, if they still trust
themselves, show them another illusion.
Then follow with, "If you can't trust your own senses, what
can you trust when it comes to the important questions?"
This leads to a conversation about the Bible, knowing what happens
after you die, and the gospel.
If you are talking with a post modern, you might say, "You
are using your own judgment to determine what happens after you
die. But you could not correctly perceive reality when I showed
you two illusions. Could it be that your mind is being tricked about
what happens after you die? Would you like to hear what an eyewitness
has to say about this?"
The eyewitness is God and what He has to say is in the Bible. Now
help them understand they are sinners in need of a savior, and then
share the gospel.
