Words of Comfort: Mission Europe--Openness in Europe

Americans are generally more open, but that may be because they are often more outgoing by nature, and they are used to having God mentioned in the culture. It’s not the case in Europe. Preaching there is like diving for pearls. The shell is a little harder to open but it is worth the effort to reach precious souls.

It seems that most of Europe has embraced atheism, but when you’ve had a little training in the principles of biblical evangelism, that isn’t a problem. Most atheists backslide in seconds when asked one thought-provoking question. The only real hostility we encountered in Europe was the drunken crowd in Belgium, and we suspect that that was caused by alcohol rather than anger towards the gospel.
