“Your message equates to any evangelization being a hate crime. Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and indeed anybody else would have an equal right to be offended by a polite Christian calling on them.”
I’m going to take this rare parting in the mists of history to point out we agree on this. It doesn’t matter to me personally, whether someone believes exactly as I do. Like Paul, I surely wish they did, minus the chains, for their own sake. I am not offended personally at all.
In the end, they have personal responsibility and freedom for their own life and choices. I don’t wish to take away the freedom or responibility God gave them.
I’m just a signpost on the way, a friend, or the loving Hand of Christ. Sometimes I get to “put a pebble in their shoe” that continues to feel uncomfortable every time they think about it.
Still, they alone decide the response before God. While I may feel sorrow for their choice, it is their call.
