I have been trying to witness to my in-laws. They are atheist. I am trying to think of a starting point. Where do I start with my witnessing? They don't believe anything!
I am also trying to research and study different religions, to prepare myself. I want to be prepared when I am witnessing. If anyone has any links/ resources for me to read up on, I would REALLY appreciate it.
the way of the master is a good tool.
what about using the Roman's Road?
I would also suggest going to your local Christian bookstore or looking online. You could find some excellent witnessing tools that are not do not cost alot of money

I have nothing to add. I know that this is going to be a long hard road. I am a grief counsellor and once I had to counsel an athiest couple who lost their 4 year old daughter to cancer. I was so depressed at the end of it because we just kept butting heads and I wasn't helping them. xoxox Try what these others ladies have suggested I will be praying for you.
You know, I think that the best way to witness to them is to show them your faith through every aspect of your life. You can preach to them, teach them, and so forth, but they will not come to a decision until the Spirit leads them to do so.
If you study Luke 10, Jesus talks about the importance of establishing a relationship with someone and then going from there. I know of many people who will go out and hand out tracts and so forth, but according to Luke 10 we are to set up a relationship, speak peace upon them, pray for them etc....show them why they HAVE to have the faith you do.
Show them your first love, show them that Chrisitianity is not a set of rules, and it is certainly not a religion, it is a relationship with the living Christ who takes them where they are dirty torn down, weak and unable to do it on their own. Often times, if you go about this without the Lord's prompting, the door will be closed.....just speaking from personal experiance.
Pray about it and ask the Lord to open the doors for you, and constantly pray for the people you are witnessing to, because there will be a barage of attacks on thiers and your lives as you lead them in the direction of salvation. Satan will fight for them tooth and nail.
First of all, I love your picture of your babies! They are beautiful.
I am not good at the witness thing. Most of my friends are very liberal and athiest. I try to talk to them w/out sounding preachy or anything, and I can tell they don't want to hear it. I agree with praying for them and reaching out to them in other ways.
I just finished a study guide from our church on the book of John that I loved. I just don't know how you can get through that book and not believe that Jesus Christ is anything but our Lord and Saviour.
God bless you with your mission. I hope this helps.
I just wanted to say good luck. I know some atehists and I think its almost impossible to convince them that God exists. They usually want scientific proof for everything and since theres no scientific way to proove that God exists, they don't believe it. My experience is anything you say they ask "how do you know it was God?" "how can you prove it was God?" "with all the scientific evidence i'm giving you, you still choose to believe in God?" and stuff like that. I gave up. I hope you have better luck than me
