  1. I am a zealot 24/7 but I also am well aware of the fact that not everyone is on board with that. If someone doesn't want to hear it then I drop it. I just want them to at least know what I believe. When a believer shares God's word with someone, the bible refers to that as 'planting and watering' which is our job, but only God can provide the increase. The call goes out to everyone. Jesus died for you. He loves you. But His love alone will not save someone, because He needs to know you.
  2. This was a verse I posted in another thread which is a command for all believers. 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
  3. Pro 16:28 A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.
  4. Wes, first I already know you are not a believer (yet), and I'm cool with that. I'll summarize it here: Faith in Christ Jesus as your personal Savior. Jesus gave His life for us so that we could be reconciled with God. All we need to do is to believe that; however, if someone believes that Jesus died for them and they are not willing to give their life back to Him then they're probably not a Christian.
  5. Sadly, Wesley, that's probably a true statement. And I'm saying it's fine if someone is not a Christian as we all have free will. I just don't see how someone who is a Christian and believes there will be a judgment day, would not be willing to share their faith with them. I don't want to see people that I knew in this life, standing in the wrong line on judgment day, and having them think: "if you knew I would end up here, then why didn't you tell me?"
  6. I was at a bible study with a Christian friend and his family one night a few weeks ago and was surprised to learn that my friend's wife's co-workers don't know she is a Christian. Is this the norm? The idea that "I believe in what I believe and I have no idea what you believe" because the subject is never broached? You don't have to hit them over the head with your bible but is it loving to keep your faith a secret? I was on another thread on this site which presumably is mostly Christian writers and I asked twice of this fellow if he is a Christian to which he didn
  7. Accord, I'm a zealot through and through. Still don't know if you're a Christian, but curious, that's why I ask. I like to see different people's perspectives so that I can challenge my own. I learn from everyone and try to retain what is good. And God says 'if you love me keep my commandments' and that's not just the ten commandments. There are commandments throughout the bible. 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
  8. Accord, pride is not a good thing. The bible says that God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble. I know everyone on here is not a Christian and I don't know what you believe, but I believe that God's strength works through our weakness, so it's not always our effort but God's that matters. For example, there was a dramatic historic event that took place in the 1 Kings 18 with Elijah (who was all alone) and 450 prophets of Baal. The 450 put in all kinds of effort from morning till noon and nothing happened. Then Elijah accomplishes the task with just one short prayer.
