Have you ever encountered someone who has called themselves a Satanist?
HOW DO YOU DISCUSS GOD WITH A SATANIST?
That’s a great question! Recently we told you about an app from Dare 2 Share that helps you to share your faith! It’s a pretty sick app, if you haven’t checked it out yet, get deets here.
This app has a section in it where it links to a resource that helps you to discuss your faith with people who have different beliefs about how they understand the world/life/God/existence (called ‘Worldview’ see our article here). It explores how to have conversation with 13 people, each with a different worldview/belief. It’s under the section called ‘How 2 Share’.
For each person/worldview you’re given a basic description, questions to get the conversation going, areas to admire, a summary of that person’s core beliefs and tips for how to share your faith with that person.
Here’s some highlights on how to engage a Satanist person in conversation about God.
Q to ask – What influenced your decision to become a Satanist?
Areas to Admire – Sid’s unflinching boldness in expressing his beliefs, even when they are unpopular.
Beliefs – believe in and have a strong dislike/hate for God.
Tips – they aren’t waiting around for someone to share the gospel with them, so you will need to approach them with an incredible amount of love and patience. One way you can show this is to see past the ‘shock value’ lifestyle to the hurting and trapped individual underneath.

Remember… you can’t argue someone to faith in Christ, but you can (and should) live such a Christlike life that those around you sense, see and experience something different and counter-cultural in you, which opens the door for you to explain the ‘evidence’.
