What do People Think of Us?

I believe that one of the main reasons that sharing the Gospel is so often neglected (even though it is so often commanded in the Bible) is because we fear what people will think of us. Well I would like to share a couple perspectives from non-Christians that should compel us, rather than stop us.

Letter From an Atheist (this is an excerpt from a letter written to Ray Comfort from an atheist)

"You are really convinced that you've got all the answers. You've really got yourself tricked into believing that you're 100% right. Well, let me tell you just one thing. Do you consider yourself to be compassionate of other humans? If you're right, as you say you are, and believe that, then how can you sleep at night? When you speak with me you are speaking with someone who you believe is walking directly into eternal damnation into an endless onslaught of horrendous pain which your 'loving' god created, yet you stand by and do nothing.

If you believe one bit that thousands every day were falling into an eternal and unreacheable fate, you should be running the streets mad with rage at their blindness. That's equivalent to standing on a street corner and watching every person that passes you walk blindly directly into the path of a bus and die, yet you stand idly by and do nothing. You're just twiddling your thumbs, happy in the knowledge that one day that 'walk' signal will shine your way across the road.

Think about it. Imagine the horrors Hell must have in store if the bible is true. You're just going to allow that to happen and not care about saving anyone but yourself? If you're right then you're an uncaring, unemotional and purely selfish (expletive) that has no right to talk about subjects such as love and caring."

And also this video from Penn (of Penn and Teller)

  1. Good post!

    Another reason is just not knowing what to say.....not knowing what to say is second only to fear of man is what I have found after 3 years of teaching the WOTM basic course.

    But, that should never be an excuse. We have the words of life and we need to share them daily!
