Southern Baptists, searching for new ways to get people to listen to the Gospel, are tempting bikers with a vice, a shiny new Harley Davidson.

The Sioux City Journal published an interesting read about how evangelists taking advantage of large biker rallies, by raffling off brand new bikes. If someone agrees to listen to a few minutes of sermon, they receive a free raffle ticket.

As far as the Southern Baptists are concerned it's working...

This year at the Sturgis event, which attracts close to half a million people, about 4,500 people listened to the sermon and 870 of those made a profession of faith.

"There were many people who said to us they thought people weren't interested in hearing about God at a motorcycle rally," Hamilton said. "We would have considered 50 or so a success. We were blown away by that many people responding."
When someone makes a profession of faith, they're given a Bible, and instructed to find a church when they return home. To make sure, they collect their contact info and relay it to the church nearest them.

The brand new Harley that was raffled off at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was described as a "black 2007 Harley Davidson DynaGlide", which retails for $17,000 but the Baptists got for $14,000.

Nothing like using the power of the Lord to get a great deal!
