    Six and a half billion human minds at play on this planet during every twenty-four hour period.

    What do they all have in common?

    If one is going to attempt a successful outreach program, then this question needs to be asked. :)

    What do six and a half billion human minds have is common?

    anybody?

    love,

    Is it that we share approximately 96% of our dna with chimps? :)

    They're human. That's about it.

    Hey now, the nerd rapture "could" happen and we could have a direct neural interface within our lifetime and be the first generation to cheat death. (ok, a small chance)

    Sorry, but some of them are sociopaths who technically feel no love.

    That's kind of a bleak outlook on humanity. But speak for yourself, we're not all dirty evil people that need purging.

    hmmmm, well that's true for the typical human, but what about the mutant freaks? The ones with an extra Y chromosome or something? That's got the throw off the numbers.

    NO. :(


    WOO! I'm dancing a negative nancy parade! What else you guys got?

    You and Mark aren't being very imaginative tonight. Surely there's more in common than that?

    Actually we don't know for sure what they have in common. We extrapolate a similar inward state from observing the outward actions of other humans but we can't know.

    My issue is with his inclusion of the word "all". If he had said "99%+", I would have some additional ideas of what there is in common. But "all" includes some great extremes of the human race, including sociopaths and the "mentally challenged".

    Yeah yeah yeah, solipsism is like the jr. high of philosophy. Get beyond it and accept that reality really exists and you graduate to actually thinking about this stuff.

    We exist. We exist here. Get on with it.

    It is wonderful that you are thinking big, but the action Jesus showed us in reaching everyone is small. It requires very little money and no big organization. You just get together a small group (4-12) of Christians that want to grow and you allow the Spirit within you to lead them to become like you (which is like Jesus), so they can eventually want to allow the Spirit to work through them doing the same thing. Some might be ready in 6 months and others might take 20 years, but if you can just average one per year in 36 years you run out of people on earth (all 7 billion).

    You'll find that there are many that do not want to convert to Christianity. I don't care if 99.9999999 percent of people became Christian, I don't believe it is the truth and I am willing to stand with a small group where I believe the truth resides than join the crowd which I believe is lacking.

    I'm in complete agreement with b&wpac4. There are even the very spiritual people who are very aware of the presence of God and yes, whom even know Christ directly, yet would never have any desire to be Christians.

    But Love...everyone responds to Love. Some how it's basic to the nature of Human Beings to respond to Love. If you take your group of 4 to 12 and explore ways to Love other people and to teach Love to others, than I think you would have something that reaches much further than your suggestion. And quite honestly, with out saying the word "Jesus", I think that you would be teaching and expanding His essence a lot quicker.
