Stage 1: Seeker/spiritually dead

People in this stage have not yet accepted Christ as Lord and Savior.

People here might even claim to know Jesus, but they do not have the Holy Spirit living in them. They can be characterized by statements or questions such as:

  • I don't believe there's a God.
  • The bible is just a bunch of myths.
  • Religion is a crutch for the weak.
  • Christians are just intolerant and homophobic people.
  • There are many ways a person can get to God.
  • I don't believe in hell. People just make their own hell.
  • I've been a good person, so when I die, everything will be okay. I'll take my chances with the big man upstairs.
  • There is no absolute right or wrong. If something's right for you, it might not be right for me, and vice versa.
  • I'm spiritual, but I don't connect with any one religion.

If you might fall in the seeker/spiritually dead stage, a Newcomer's Party would be a great place for you to meet some staff and elders that can answer any questions you might have..
