“There isn’t any thing “swinish” about praying for the soul of another man. The Holy Spirit keeps working on him.”

I didn’t mean to imply that it is. The verse seems to imply the rejector is a swine, certainly not the caster of the pearls.

Similarly, when Jesus sent His disciples out to preach the gospel, if they were refused, they were instructed to shake the very dust off their feet as a testimony against that town.

So I think there is a consistent sense of discerning times to witness and pray and times to not witness and pray.

I don’t pretend to perfectly know when those times are. I don’t think we are supposed to continually hold up the Lord and His sacrifice for abuse, though.

Thanks, I understand. I guess I have a hard time letting any one go regardless how they behave.
