About Tracts4God

This site exists to make Gospel tracts available for anybody to print.

There is no copyright--feel free to modify a tract in any way you need to--but I do ask a few things:

  • Stick to the old King James Bible or a the most comparable Textus Receptus-based foreign-language Bible. If you paraphrase, don't put it in quotes and say "Thus saith the LORD."
  • Don't gloss over sin assuming lost people understand how God sees them. They are spiritually blind, and need a supernatural working of the Holy Spirit to bring conviction in their lives, that they might be saved.
  • I'd prefer you not add a prayer to repeat, and if you really want to, be careful how you do it. I hope you will consider this article. Nobody in the Bible was ever led in a sinner's prayer, although certainly Romans 10:13 is true, and God does hear repentant sinners. Psalm 51 is a good example of how sinners should come before God, but God looks upon the heart, not any special words. Would you lead a husband caught in adultery to come before his wife, repeating after you, "Dear wife (dear wife), I am so sorry (I am so sorry) for cheating on you (for cheating on you)"?
  • Once a person is humble and of a repentant spirit (having seen their sins as crimes against a holy God), salvation is simple--believe (have faith, or trust) in Jesus (Acts 16:31)--keep it simple. Don't let anybody think he has to make himself clean before God will receive him (Proverbs 20:9).

Downloadable tracts

All current tracts are printable on standard letter-sized paper (8.5" x 11" / 216 mm x 279 mm) except for "Salvation Appointment," which looks better on letter-sized cardstock of business-card paper.
Print double-sided (you may have to flip the sheet and reinsert it into your printer); cut and fold if necessary.

These tracts are designed for printers with minimal or no page-margin (border) requirements. If your printer cuts off the margins, then when you print the pdf file, print it at something like 95% size (you may have to experiment, depending on your printer). Email me if you need help getting it to print properly.

Software recommendations

To open pdf files, I recommend the free Foxit Reader. Any pdf reader will work to read the tracts.
To open odt files, I recommend the free office suite OpenOffice.org. You will need this to edit the tracts.
To make your friends online think you've memorized half the Bible, try e-Sword (free Bible software).

These hard-to-find fonts are required to edit some tracts: OLDENGL.TTF and SCRIPTBL.TTF. Please let me know if other fonts are needed.

Kirk Clark's "Are You a 'GOOD' Person?" (B) tract requires Microsoft Word.

Future plans/ideas

  • Keep praying about the possibility of having the small prophecy tract printed by my church.
  • Make a tract to put in beer cartons--perhaps something like "How many brands of beer can you name?" and then inside asking how many of the Ten Commandments they can name.
  • Consider writing more articles (e.g., on God's holiness, false conversions, practical evangelism, repentance, or the modern Gospel) or including other articles I may find (with permission).
  • Put up a Bible study for those who find this website from a tract, and may be lost or recently saved. It should be something I could send anybody who would ask, as well as an online resource. 
  • Catholic tract--"Mary's God"? (Based on "And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.")
  • I'd like to write a tract on Islam, with similar ideas to Fellowship Tract League's "The Koran Testimony."
  • Another idea is a very simple "ice-breaker" tract for street witnessing--something funny or flashy to get somebody's attention and plant a seed, with a website for more information, but primarily with the purpose of initiating a spiritual conversation. An optical-illusion tract or jokes tract could  work.
  • Get a domain name and build a real website. Make the pig button an animated gif with something like "flapping your way to Heaven? think again."
  • Become artistic...somehow (when pigs fly).

Sermons

Please be discerning, and understand that linking to somebody's sermon does not mean I believe everything that person believes. These sermons are excellent nonetheless.

- "Ten Shekels and a Shirt" by Paris Reidhead - My favorite sermon--truly life-changing
- "The Right Use of the Law" by Paris Reidhead

Articles

Please be discerning, and understand that linking to an article does not mean I believe everything the author believes. Nevertheless, I feel these articles have some great truths.

My personal testimony - How I met the LORD Jesus Christ and was saved by grace. 

- "Law and Grace" by C.I. Scofield - A chapter from his book Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
- "Scholarolatry vs. Faith" by Samer Adra - The King James Bible vs. the modern versions
- "Thoughts on the "Sinner's Prayer" by Samer Adra - Considers instances of sinners' prayers in the Scriptures
- "Using God's Law Lawfully" by Rob Holm - The biblical "key" to effective evangelism
- "What comes before the 'Romans Road'" by Samer Adra - Evangelism in light of Romans 1-3

In the future, I hope to add materials by Spurgeon, Pink, and others (perhaps quotes from Moody, Whitefield, Wesley, et al). These men all preached the necessity of the law in evangelism (so did Paul).
