RawDisciple Ministries is a ministry of hope and encouragement inspired by the grace of God. My name is Justin Ludwig and I am a man completely changed by the love and grace of Jesus Christ. I started this ministry for one simple purpose, to glorify Jesus Christ to everyone I possibly can, online as well as in the streets. I spent most of my life feeling hopeless because I thought I knew God. I was deceived by a lifetime of tainted experiences with Christians which led me to the conclusion that God just wasn’t for me. (My Testimony). I simply didn’t know….. I didn’t know how much God loved me…. I didn’t know that He desperately wanted me. In hindsight, I knew without question that I could never measure up, so I never even tried….. So I suffered alone in the darkness with no desire for God…..because I thought I knew.
It weighs heavy on my heart that there are so many fooled by the same lie. Right this moment people are condemned to hell because they believe a lie….we cannot remain silent!
I, and those who support this ministry, refuse to stand by silently and let the enemy continue to deceive the world. RawDisciple Ministries reaches the far corners of the earth by sharing theological teachings via RawDisciple’s online articles and YouTube videos, as well as witnessing and loving by walking the streets and seeking out the lost and broken. We understand and utilize the power of prayer, but we also hold firm to James 2:14-17 which reminds us that if someone is hungry, don’t just pray for their needs, feed them! Whether it be a 5 dollar blessing, a blanket, or buying them lunch, they get to experience the love of God through us! (1 John 4:12)
If Holy Spirit is pulling at your heart and you would like to help spread the Gospel, ignite hope and bless those who are crying out for help, I encourage you to donate and help us love in action, in Jesus name.
Holy Spirit is a Gentlemen and His truth is not to be forced upon anyone. (Matt 10:14)
Some non believers feel they are being bible thumped, which is pushing them further from God. At the same time, some christians think that the great commission requires them to hound and pressure everyone to follow Christ. This is not how Holy Spirit works.
It is our love that will open their eyes to the Truth. If someone doesn’t want to hear it, move on….don’t bible thump. It is our job to present the Truth, it is not our job to convert, that is God’s job. Love in action, no condemnation or pressure.
Love atheists, muslims and God haters the same way you love christians. That is how people will come to the Truth. Unreserved love, with no agenda. So come on church, the world is waiting…. and they don’t even know it.

I am not saying that I am better than you because I am a Christian. I have lied, cheated, stolen. I was a monster, far worse than anyone I have ever met. I’ve done things that would horrify you and I stand before you saying that I am forgiven and that I am going to heaven. You call me a hypocrite!?….. no no no. I would be a hypocrite if I thought I was better than you… but I don’t.
I am just a man, who admits that I am a sinner. I have done bad things to myself and to others most of my life. So to say that because I believe the only way to be made right is to admit defeat, trust that He loves me enough to know my heart and forgive me.
That doesn’t make me better than you, it just means I recognize the Truth. And the Truth is that I love because God is love, Jesus is love. That’s it, a self sacrificing, everyone above me kind of love is what God desires from me, from us. So don’t get it twisted, just because you had one, two or a thousand bad experiences with christians doesn’t mean you have us figured out.
Love and blindly being okay with everything around us is not the same. Alot of Christians get it twisted, I know. I see it everyday, and they are wrong to hate. You shout tolerance then you judge me because I love? We may have more in common than you realize.
