Hello, GMM blog readers.
Jillette Penn is half of the comedian magicians duo Penn and Teller ; he is a brilliant man and an avowed atheist.
Here’s a frank and moving video worth watching because of his perspective about “proselytizing”. In it, he tells of receiving the gift of a Bible and his thoughts on Christian evangelism.
He doesn’t respect people who don’t proselytize!
So, when the opportunities come to share my faith, the questions are:
- am sincerely complimentary, polite, kind, and good to skeptics?
- will I look a non-believer right in the eyes; or am I “defensive” about my faith?
- since I truly believe there’s a heaven and a hell, do I care enough about this other human being, made in the image of God, to take the risk of being “socially awkward”?
- how much do I have to hate someone, to believe everlasting life is possible, and yet not tell them the Gospel?
