A friend recently pointed me to this video clip. Penn Jillette, famous magician, comedian, and outspoken atheist tells of an encounter with a Christian. At 7 Mile Road we’ve been talking a lot about sharing our faith, and I hope this is more food for thought. Tell me what you think.
“I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. If you believe that there’s a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, ‘Well, it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward’… How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?”
