You Shall Be My Witnesses

Marge C celebrated her 90th Birthday and her fun loving family inserted and lit 90 candles. What a conflagration!

The best witness we can give a non Christian is respect and considerate love. The truth is that probably very few Christians engage in aggressive evangelism on a day to day basis.

The other truth is that those who do probably need to back off. Paul and the first century evangelists were very aggressive and under commission to get the gospel to the ends of the known world in that generation. Paul says they actually did accomplish the task.

Today, in a gospel saturated culture, we should rely more on Paul's admonition to always be ready to give a reason for the hope within. Don't be pushy or rude, let people inquire. I do not want to be evangelized by Mormons, nor live under the cultural demands of Muslim religion. I want the freedom to practice my faith, and the respect to allow others to practice there faith or lack of faith as long as no one is being harmed.

God is on the case, of people you would harm if you pushed them. Relax, do justly, act mercifully and walk humbly with the Lord.
