yes. i think christians who agressively try to evangelise are often doing more harm than good. i'm of the type that will let it be known that i'm a christian, behave myself with a certain dignity and coolness (over a long term) and then talk to you about jesus only if you ask. i took the scripture to heart: 'he who sows will not surely reap'. i feel a lot of evangelical christians want to see conversion caused by their actions - some sort of score card. 'soul hunters; i've never heard that phrase before but it fits.I don't blame the Christians, I blame the over evangelical side of it. I'm all for Christians and enjoy being around them. It's the soul hunters that bother me. That goes for Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, etc. It's a very small fringe that ruins it for the rest of them. But at least it's not like the IRS coming to repo something. I can handle a few soul hunters and carry about my day peacefully without throwing the whole religion under the bus.
Having said that though.....
A Christian with an ego plus an atheist with an ego is just flat out doomed.
I make sure everyone I meet knows that about me. I think one of the best things in life you can do is figure out where someone is coming from and love them from that angle. I couldn't care less what people think, I refuse to be ashamed of who I am because of what someone else thinks. Actually I've lost as soon as I'm all up in their head second guessing how they'll take me. Who cares?that no time at all did I "preach, mention, or hint" at religion. I was there to play rock and roll and blues, not to discuss religion or politics, etc.
Kinda odd, huh?
Lovely, thank you for that beastdrummagirl!Psalm 150:5!
Couldn't agree with you more, if you know where they are coming from you have a better guess of where they are going so you won't be fooled so quick.I make sure everyone I meet knows that about me.
