I would like a clear and easily understood way to lead someone to Christ. Would you please forward that to me. Thank you and God Bless your ministry.
That’s a good question, Phil!
First I would ask, how were you led to Christ? What attracted you — what interested you? Perhaps you could repeat that process
Then I would say that someone needs to feel a need, before he is willing to expend the effort which is required to come to Christ.
Your best bet is to become thoroughly familiar with the Holy Scriptures, and then present those truths to others.
I would recommend starting with the life of Christ, who He is and why He came here. Then look at His comission to His apostles, Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:45-48, etcl. Then study the Acts of the Apostles, and see how they carried out the Great Commission in the first century.
I would recommend a web site which contains hundreds of gospel lessons, some of them on teaching the lost.

I think you will be pleased with the wealth of information in Mark Copeland’s Executable Outlines series.
But remember one very important point.
It doesn’t matter what I think; it doesn’t matter what you think; it doesn’t matter what Mark thinks about a Bible subject — what matters is what GOD thinks! And how do we know what God thinks? He has revealed it to us in His Holy Word. In fact, in His word is all that we will ever need. Look at II Timothy 3:16-17 and II Peter 1:3. [Go ahead, look them up; I will wait for you.]
So go to it, remembering that it is not your own talent which will lead someone to Christ, but it is the gospel, the power of God to salvation (Romans 1:16). Your job is to just present the gospel to the sinner.
