*Long Script: Say: “Hello, sir/ma’am. Please repent of your sins and surrender your life completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. God’s Word, the Bible, says that if you have ever sinned and broken God’s Law even one time –by lying, lusting, having anger or hatred in your heart, disobeying your parents, spending more time serving your job, yourself, or, other people, than you do serving God, etc…- you will be separated from God, you will die, you will be judged by God after death, you will be judged guilty of sin, breaking God’s Law, and you will be cast into the lake of fire. Your only alternative is to repent, to stop all sin and self-centered living, commit your life completely to the Lord Jesus Christ -Who died on the cross as a sacrifice for your sins, was buried, was raised from the dead so that you could be declared innocent- and live for Him by reading the Bible daily, obeying all that it says, and choosing not to sin against Christ anymore. Sir/ma’am, every moment that you live, death comes closer to you, judgment comes closer to you, the lake of fire comes closer to you. Please stop all sin and begin complete obedience to Christ before you perish”

 

 

 

*Short “Hit-and-Run” Script: Say: “Please repent of your sins and surrender your life completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. Sin -lying, lusting, hating – will send you to Hell. Only completely obeying Christ can get you to Heaven. Stop sinning and start obeying Christ before you perish”
