Here's the front of the tract:
While I came up with the general concept, Marv creatively put together this striking design, which utilizes the flag for the Alphabet Soup of sexual immorality (LGBT......letters being added daily).
And here's the text on the back of the baseball card-size gospel tract:
The world defines “pride” as: “a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.” Yet the Word of God says a person’s pride is followed by disgrace (Prov. 11:2); pride is arrogance (Prov. 21:24); pride will bring a person low (Prov. 29:23). The Word of God says pride is something evil that comes from a person’s heart (Mark 7:21-23), and that God is opposed to prideful people (James 4:6). God sees pride the same way He sees so many other behaviors—as sinful (2 Tim. 3:1-4). God sees pride as evil because it is contrary to who He is. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, humbled Himself to take on human flesh and then humbled Himself even further when He sacrificed His life in the most humiliating way—death on a cross. What awaits prideful people? What comes after pride? Destruction (Prov. 16:18)—God’s judgment of sin, the punishment for which is eternity in hell. Your only hope is to turn from your sinful pride, turn toward God and, by faith alone, receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ—fully God and fully man, yet without sin, voluntarily shed his innocent blood and died on the cross, taking upon Himself the punishment you rightly deserve for your sins against God. Three days later, He forever defeated sin and death when He rose from the grave. Yes, God is opposed to the proud, but He gives grace to the humble (James 4:6). Humble yourself. Repent and believe the gospel, today.You will notice a significant term missing from the text: homosexuality.
While the front of the gospel tract draws the reader's thoughts toward the social and moral issue of our day--the issue by which God-hating societies will set out to try to destroy the Bride of Christ (His Church), the back of the gospel tract makes no mention of the topic--not even an allusion to it.
When a person receives this gospel tract, regardless of the form(s) of sexual immorality in which they engage (heterosexual or homosexual, thoughts or deeds), the reader will be compelled to consider a sin they love just as much: pride.
Of course, what matters most is that those who receive this gospel tract will read it to the very end. Marv and I hope every recipient will read the biblical gospel message this tract contains, repent, and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
I hope you will find this gospel tract useful in your evangelism efforts. May God receive the glory, and may the Lamb receive the reward for His suffering.
