eBay-vangelism? A guy on eBay who claims to be an agnostic sent me a note that he is offering Christians the opportunity to share the gospel with him for the low price of $50 for 30 minutes. I am not making this up.
"This auction is for an opportunity to proclaim the Christian Gospel to an Agnostic," writes the seller.
I am a 28 year old man, located in Plainfield, Illinois. I was raised as a Christian, regularly attended a non-denominational Bible church throughout childhood, and was a member of Awana. I now consider myself an Agnostic and regularly attend a local Unitarian Universalist church. I am skeptical but keep an open mind--I have not yet been convinced that there is enough evidence to warrant a belief in God or Jesus Christ as my saviour.
I will meet with the winner of this auction and provide them with an opportunity to proclaim the Christian Gospel in an effort to convince me. I will spend 1 hour with the winner for each increment of $50 included in the winning bid. For example, $100 = 2 hours and $200 = 4 hours.
I am willing to travel no further than 15 miles for this meeting; and the meeting time(s) and location(s) must be mutually agreed upon, preferably in a public setting, such as a local coffee shop or bookstore. Alternatively, if the winning bidder is unable to meet within 15 miles of my home, teleconferencing is also an acceptable alternative.
During the meeting(s) I will listen and both answer and ask questions of the winning bidder.
