Another dumb post on my part
...if you keep on, best be ready for a visit by a bunch of men driving black GMC's and find yourself "court ordered" for a psych evaluation. Best leave those folks alone. :thumbsup:
OK, you DO have a question mark in your opening post, so you HAVE invited anyone and everyone to comment.
No, brother. You have done that to yourself and it's a gross pity that you can't see it.
It has nothing to do with "our day of tolerance". It has everything to do with the fact that you are making veiled threats against these people.
I would be scared to death for my safety if I kept getting letters and voicemails from you like this.
"Final warning"? Really?
So after they ignore your "final warning", what are you going to do to them? THAT's what they fear. THAT's what any sane person would fear after being harassed by a total stranger.
LISTEN to me....
After they read about your threatening "final warning"...they are IGNORING anything that comes after that because the threat was so disconcerting!!
Who cares that you told them that Jesus died for their sins - you've acted like a hate-filled stalker - leaving voicemails and giving "final warnings". The two mindsets don't mix.
You DID ask for comment.
Put yourself in their shoes.
You said that Ray Comfort was was approached by policemen. Peter and John were arrested, too.
If you are, it WON'T be for preaching the gospel.
It will be for threatening people and scaring them to death.
You won't be a martyr for the faith with the way you are acting.
Wise words. Evan, you ought to seriously consider them.
Except the person making them failed to read my message. What I said was I contacted them once with final warning and then said I am moving on to other churches.
I should have listened to Matt Wade about this board why did I post this? Stupidity on my part.
Seriously? You do not get it, and I wonder if you even desire to.
Seems to be a habit. Hope you have your defense attorney chosen.
No. The stupidity was in the way you presented yourself in that message. You abandoned tact and made a threat. Whether you meant to or not, you did. I would call the police on you if I received that message. Along with a restraining order. You went WAY overboard on that one.
Before me, two people have said the same thing. But you won't hear it. I've urged you to do this before, and even though I'm sure it will fall on deaf ears I urge again. Take a step back and look at your words. Think long and hard about them.
Look I made it clear that I would be contacting other churches next and no longer interested in them. God is the one they will have to deal with next. Can you not understand this
And this is part of the reason I asked in the other thread is what evangelist doing the work of an evangelist?
Seems a like the wrong approach if you want to tell folks about Jesus who saves.
Not in our day and age. But let me ask you this. If what I am doing is wrong can you explain the actions of Paul and of Jesus? Jesus openly condemned the teachers of his day. I am not doing that as I also preach grace. Also another question for you.
Why do they sell gospel tracts intended for false teachers, the deceived and so forth if they cannot be used?
So do you only pass out God loves you tracts?????
I have tracts for the cults, tracts on Hell, tracts on satan, and tracts on the false teachers. What do I do with them???? Let a rabbit have them????
Just because someone prints something and calls it Christian, the Bible, or anything of that nature does not automatically mean it is a biblical thing. We all need to use personal judgment.
What you are doing and what Paul and Jesus did are not the same thing. The problem for you is that you are to lazy to work to build relationships with these people before you lambast them. So you come off like Westboro Baptist Church.
No one disagrees with what you want to do. The problem is how you are going about it. What you are doing is cheap, easy, and causes more harm than good.
People do not care what you know until they know that you care.
...and not a threat to their safety.
How can I build a relationship with people I have no daily connection with? Explain that. Also Westboro Baptist pickets funerals and is a hate group and they DO NOT preach grace.
If I was this way I would not send gospel tracts on the cross and about faith and repentance as well. Ever think about that?
Let me paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen, "I know Jesus and I know the Apostle Paul. You are no Jesus."
Isaiah 11:2-3 NAS77
2 And the Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
3 And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
"You are no Paul."
Philippians 3:4-6 NAS77
4 although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more:
5 circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee;
6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless.
Click the link if you miss the inference.
And I ask again are you doing the work of an evangelist? It just seems that you're trying to do some stuff other than evangelize.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and surmise that they are being sold because somebody figured out they could make money off the sell of them.
I'm just saying again that what you appear to try to be doing with the tracts doesn't seem to be evangelism.
I try not to pass out tracts at all. I enjoy the going.
So because you have them, you have to force them upon folks in a way that perhaps God has not intended?
That's like saying I've got 200 cable channels? What do Id o with them? I got them. I HAVE to do something with them.
If God hasn't told you that what you're doing is the work of the evangelist then stop calling yourself an evangelist.
There is a BIBLICAL definition of what an evangelist is. Are you living in that definition?
Did Paul or Jesus hunt down every bad synagogue and temple to false gods in their towns?
Appears to me his screen name should be colporteur.
If I didn't know better I would say that you are playing some sort of game with the commentariat here. It's like one of these threads pops up every single day and they all end the same way. You asking what people think and then ignoring everyone when you don't like the answer. I've had enough of them. Forgive me for being blunt but I think you use these questions as a way of humblebragging and seeking validation from your peers. I'm not impressed and I think your approach lacks patience and practicality. Your question has been asked and answered...until tomorrow.
