  1. Hi There

    Emails and calls might work for you cuz of your ministry. Perhaps having a Gmail witnessing email is ok πŸ€”. I dont switch to email or phone call cuz strangers online πŸ‘€πŸ˜¬. so average people should be cautious, but they can use dm if in facebook, or on social media… just provide a link to an offsite answer or blog in the reply.( You can make a free blogger account and create links to similar answers on a topic that connect to various videos or Christian website pages.) Then they can review it and follow up with other questions if truly interested.

    A lot of times it's antis arguing cuz they have no interest in God. But at least you provided the answers they can investigate.

    Though with youtube you can't give links cuz it marks you as a permanent spam bot. But you can say Check out yt ColdCaseChristianity search "vid title here".

    One thing for sure that is helpful with social media interactions, is that if your introverted or have limited time.. you can think through an answer and find a useful link… and not be rushed to respond right away. Plus if they're an anti… it gives them time to calm down from their misplaced anger or skepticism and consider what you say. They might become curious.

    Also… prep your day with prayer over online witnessing encounters and opportunities, and thank God for them at end of the day. Plus pray for the watering and salvation of those you interacted with.

    But also make sure we are in right heart and mind in live in how we engage. It's about sharing Christ, not arguing or one uping the lost.

    You also have to remember your friends of friends also see what you post and comment on now. It shows up in their feed. So you want to be gracious, kind and rational in what you say. I typically respond with, it seems you have a misunderstanding about xyz. And then say a Lil reply with a link to clarify/answers that question (objections are questions). So stating in the realm of love and helpfulness on your end, "seeing through" what they're saying to see what the Q really is… is where Christians can bring answers and help to seekers/antis😊
