I am not denying scripture is important. But what comes first? The only people Jesus directly confronted like you speak were the pharisees. I would guess your brother knows pretty clearly that he is separated from God (if he thought there was one). What he only knows is who God is by those around him that say they follow Him.... just a thought.
Wow, a lot of really good posts here. A lot to really chew through and meditate on.
I truly appreciate all of your great responses. It is helping me tremendously.
God bless you all.

I don’t think so. The woman at the well comes to mind. The rich young ruler. Just off the top of my head.
