>>I have news for you, authentic faith is going to push some people away, anyway.<<
I have news for you, more flies are got by honey than vinegar.
If I have my choice of listening to FReeper Papertyger or St. Francis of Assisi, guess who I give more credence to?
No one is converted by someone being rude to them. I’ve lived that role. I’ve dealt with Christians who say they love me while slamming what I love. It doesn’t work, I’m still Catholic. I’ll show a person how wonderful Jesus is by my example and it’s evangelizing all the same.
So how many have you converted?
