    Not if you reject his Son, Jesus Christ. For:

    John 3:36
    "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

    I think Lark found a buddy.

    A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

Even his own avatar, Charles Spurgeon, engaged people in this way, and wrote tons of books in the apologetic style. He didn't just write bible quotes and left it at that. He was one of the most popular preachers of his era, and I don't think he accomplished that by barking from the hilltops, condemning complete strangers.
    It all makes perfect seen if you understand protestant christian fundamentalism and evangelism.

    The importance that it be biblical because there's a damn near idolatrous attachment to scripture as selected by Luther as important in his struggles in his day.

    There's the sinful nature of man, the need of a saviour, who puts things right with God for everyone, the passive nature of salvation. All rooted in Luthers struggles with authority again, opposition to the significance of any deeds in determining fate, therefore sin and its forgiveness or otherwise by authorities is of no consequence.

    All of which begs many a question about what is the point of evangelism, if its all a done deal then your belief is of no consequence, it does not redeem you, Jesus did, past tense, actions are of no consequence either, when you think about it.

    Although difference is that its so ill understood and ill conceived, often possessed by individuals feeding needs to oppose or protest or relieve some neurotic guilt they will expect a lot of change. Usually that you'll think and live exactly as they do.

    A big part of which is quoting the script.

    Stop mocking God and humble yourself before him, for:

    The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked,
    But He blesses the home of the just.
    Surely He scorns the scornful,
    But gives grace to the humble.
    The wise shall inherit glory,
    But shame shall be the legacy of fools.
    Proverbs 3:33-35
