    Who makes the most realistic money style gospel tracts? These type of tracts are loads of fun passing out, and nearly everyone wants them.

    Do they want them because they think it's money?

    In many cases yes. The tracts are easy to pass out and the message on the back is very biblical. This is my favorite.

    Do you think they are happy to receive these tracts when they realize that they have been deceived?

    I give you a challenge. Instead of judging the tracts and the motives of the evangelist, why not order some and pass them out and see the results of effectiveness of the tracts that MOST will read?

    This one is on sale for $3.00

    http://www.shop.onemilliontracts.co...l-Tract-President-Reagan-100-per-pack-001.htm

    Another good one.

    Buy the tracts and read the message on the back and start passing them out.

    Nope. I'll pass on these fake money tracts. There are far too many Christians who leave them as "tips" in restaurants and leave no actual tip for their servers.

    Imagine their frustration when from a distance, they see what looks like a tip on their table while getting ready to clean up and when they pick it up, it's fake.

    I don't like deception in tracts.

    They should be to the point in truth and love.

    Evangelist - how about handing these out, and once they realize it's not real money, then also handing them a $1 bill?

    Did you consider that most leave a tip via their debit or credit card as most restaurants ask for this on a receipt?

    Comfort says to do this however I do not make as much money as him. However last time doing open air I waved $10 for whoever could name all 10 commandments without the aid of a bible or phone or do it alone. A few tried but none passed. But it created an interest....

    But what I may do is offer a $1.00 for any person that can summarize the 10 commandments. I may just bring $5 and allow people to summarize. That's a great idea thanks!!!

    I agree with that last bit about the $10; but I'm reluctant to use the "bait" of money to trick people into reading a gospel tract. Most people don't like being tricked, and react negatively and think negatively about those that tricked them.

    The $10, though; that was a promise of reward for effort.

    I pass out more than just that tract. I also take great use of fellowship tract league and their death and hell type tracts. I also pass out gospels from Pocket Testament league.

    John, that is one of the most deceptive things you could do.

    What if a woman you give money to really needs the money and is desperate. Maybe she has even called out to God.

    You understand that deceiving a person will immediately weaken your integrity with them right?

    So you give a lost soul fake money to open up a conversation?

    You are now going to give truth after you open up with a lie?

    Dude, what is wrong with you?

    :thumbsup: I have to agree. Although intentions may be good "money tracts" are not. They may make the evangelist feel good because people take them, but that's about it.

    I give out some money tracts, but make sure that they aren't especially realistic for the very concerns some have raised here. The tracts are usually the Million or Trillion dollar tracts, and to also make sure the person doesn't think it's real (Unless they are hopelessly gullible) I ask if they've got their million dollar bill yet.

    I'm not sure wanting super realistic tracts is the best way to go. We want to share the gospel, but not be deceptive for even a second. Wise as serpents, gentle as doves remember?

    And for goodness sakes, NEVER leave them in a restaurant with a tip or especially AS a tip. That's just wrong.

    Did you consider that even if that is true that if someone leaves a fake money tract lying on the table that at a distance, the waitress will STILL think it's money?

    That's the ONLY reason money would be lying on the table. And at every restaurant imaginable some will leave no tip, some will leave it on the table, and some will include it on the credit card. Servers are accustomed to it all on a daily basis.

    The tract is intended to deceive. But hey, if it has Ray Comfort's message on the back - it can't be criticized, right?

    The worst one is the one that looks exactly like a $20 bill that people pass out to children at Halloween and on the back it says ... "Disappointed? You won't be if you turn your life over to Jesus."

    *Le sigh*

    The Ronald Raegen and other by tract planet look more realistic than those by WOTM.

    I no longer give this tract to homeless or poor people as once I got cussed at for doing so and it was foolish of me. When I see people begging for money in DT denver I will give them another type of tract such as a gospel of John or gospel booklet by John MacArthur.

    So you are still going to keep the money tracts to deceive people that you think have plenty?

    I have close to 20 packs of money tracts from a variety of ministries from Living Waters to One Million tracts. They are great tools although I do think one should have more than one tract to pass out and why I also pass out gospel of Johns and the Burning Hell not a drop of water tract which has the fear effect to scare people to get right with God.

    RC Sproul spoke well of this kind of tract and as so many are proud in Denver good Hell tracts are great tools.

    I have had some yell at me for that tract and I tell them hell will burn forever with you there unless you repent of your sin and get right with God.
