Money Gospel Tracts can ruin your testimony and also lead someone away from accepting Jesus Christ. I share a tip of what not to do when using these type of gospel tracts.

How Not to Use Money Gospel Tracts to Witness To Someone

Most of y’all know that I like to give out gospel tracts. There’s only one type of gospel tract that I don’t like and those are the ones that look like money. Too many times you hear people leaving those instead of real money as a tip to their waiter, waitress or wherever they’re at that they need to give a tip. My personal opinion is these types of gospel tracts turn people away.Just leaving one of these and no monetary tip destroys your witness and not a way to win a person to Christ.

I do ask, if you do give out money gospel tracts, pleas make sure you include a generous monetary tip with the money gospel tract. I should add, with any gospel tracts at that. It will hurt your testimony and other Christians to leave a gospel tract of any kind with no tip!

Money Gospel Tracts

If you give out gospel tracts I encourage you not to give out the ones that are designed like money. I find it troubling when I see and hear people give these money gospel tracts out. There are other types of Gospel Tracts that I believe are more effective. Gospel tracts can help make good conversation starters. Some like the Are You A Good Person Test. There is the YOLO, you only live once. These are to name a couple. There are plenty of other ones. I have complied a list of places that will send you free Gospel Tracts.  I do not give them out, so please do not contact me asking me to send you some. That list I have is the places you contact for them.

  1. Gospel tracts can be a good way to share your faith.  As a partner in Memory Cross I’d like to send you some free samples of our origami card.  They are very unique and get attention.  When you go to our site, put “Mike send samples for free” and you’ll save the shipping.

  2. MikeVitamvas Thanks Mike. I will check it out. They are a great way to spread the gospel, but there are some that hinder the gospel and I believe these money gospel tracts are the ones that hinder it.

  3. I’d just like to pass on another way to help spread the gospel and it’s simply this:-

    Include a link to an online gospel tract (e.g. as part of your email signature. 

    An email signature is a piece of customizable HTML or text that most email applications will allow you to add to all your outgoing emails. For example, it commonly contains name and contact details – but it could also (of course) contain a link to a gospel tract. 

    For example, it might say something like, “p.s. you might like this gospel cartoon …” or “p.s. have you seen this?”.

  4. A lot of people do, which that is totally wrong if they don’t leave a tip. That is a poor witness!

  5. I agree it’s a very poor witness by doing that way leaving no tip with the gospel tract

  6. Occasionally I’ll use million-dollar tracts. Evangelism is often called “fishing for men.” To catch a real fish, you don’t just place a hook in the water. You need to use some bait. Many fishermen use a device called a lure that resembles a worm or small fish. These fishermen don’t think they are being deceitful for using lures. They simply want to catch fish.

    Very few people have complained to me about being “tricked” when offered million-dollar tracts. For one thing, there are no real million-dollar bills in circulation. I also tell people up front, “This is funny money but the back of it talks about something that’s real.” Then I ask, “Has anyone ever asked you ‘The Million Dollar Question?” If the person is willing to continue talking with me, then I proceed with questions regarding their eternal destiny.

    Last week I was at a coffee shop when a man started to leave and commented, “Let’s see if I can find a million dollars lying around.” I hollered, “I got one!” and handed him a million-dollar tract. Tom was in a hurry and so I quickly reviewed the gospel with him. He prayed to get saved. 2 Timothy 4:2 says, “Be ready in season and out of season.”

    1. There is a right and a wrong way to use them, my point is, too often “Christians” use them in the wrong way. For example, leaving that money tract in lue of a tip.
