    It's not my responsibility to "get converts."

    I point people to the only One who can save them--Jesus Christ.

    So your appointed job is just to pound the pulpit on online forums until that happens?

    Whenever and wherever there is an opportunity to point people to Christ, I consider how I might use it wisely.

    Maybe you should spend even more time considering it. I assure you, those walls of texts are only read by those who already agree with you, or those who will never agree with you. If I were Christian, I'd be flitting around displaying virtuous action, you know.. fruits of the spirit and all. Anyway.. take it or leave it.

    No, I will not take your advice.

    I've posted Scriptures which declare the guilt of those who refuse to turn to Christ, as well as Scriptures which declare the gracious Gospel of forgiveness, grace, and mercy available to all who call on Christ.

    That is God's message, and that is my message.

    If people ignore the Word of God they do so to their own destruction.

    Okay, I get it, you're not into virtuous action. Here's your pulpit back, I'm sure the Holy Spirit is yelling right beside you.

    I've been on mission trips to serve the Christian God.

    The more successful missionaries have told me that one has to learn the culture and 'speak the language'--for example, equating 'sin' with 'shame' in the cultures that wish to purge shame. The absolute most successful ones have served as examples and demonstrations of true strength. People ask where they get it, they say God; blammo, you've got yourself a convert.

    They have told me that those who smack people over the head with a Bible don't get many converts, no.

    So...

    ...learn to use it wiselier. If you want to serve the Lord and perform God's work, learn to reach people on their level. Demonstrate what you have to offer them.

    I figured this is how sensible Christians would go about it. Most online pulpit pounders seem to be more about being right than furthering their intents.

    @ Bologna:

    I don't understand your last post.

    Are you a Christian?

    If so, your previous posts make no sense.

    When all you have is a 20lb Bible, every problem looks like a head....
