Someone recently questioned Born of Him Ministries about the use of Million Dollar Bill Gospel tracts. They said we are trying to deceive people into thinking that they are receiving real money when we hand them a tract.
If anyone asks us if the MDB we hand out is real, we always tell them that it is not real money, but that it “has a real question on the back” or that “it is real paper.” We don’t try to deceive them, we don’t try to fool them into thinking that it is real money. There are no real million dollar bills in America. (Zimbabwe actually printed a 100 Trillion dollar bill during their time of hyper-inflation).
In Matthew 6:24, Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
2 Corinthians 4:4 states, “In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” Satan, the little “g” god of this world has already deceived many people through their love of money. He will use any means to keep people spiritually blind.
So, yes, we use Million Dollar Bill Gospel tracts to get people’s attention. Our goal is to get them to turn the MDB over and read a clear presentation of the Gospel on the back side. Our purpose is to spread the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. That is our desire; for God to use the tracts to open the eyes of people who are already deceived. Our hope and prayer is that they will see the light of Jesus.
