Without fail, when I was in school and now with friends the problem I run into when sharing the gospel is a persons inability to accept age of the earth/creation story. Believing Jesus's message and that he died for the sins of the world seems to never be the issue. Most of the time they understand that a Jesus from Nazereth offers the free gift of eternal life by just believing. But almost everyone will say "I just can't accept the view that the earth is only a few thousand years old". So, after hearing it over and over I've finally said not every Christian believes and thinks the exact same things, but the key is receiving Christ. After sharing this with a friend he thinks this isn't a good idea. Has anyone else run into the same problems?
