    Please tell me more. I think I understand but I am not sure. Are you talking about "non-believers" who tell you "He who does not sin should cast the first stone?" It may be (?) that they are trying to use Scriptures as you say to "defend themselves." Is it possible to build a friendship or a relationship first? Or are you talking about "church goers" who are using bible verses to excuse themselves from witnessing?" Thanks for reading, Mr. Messy

    Perhaps you need to make it clearer that you are not directing the call to repent towards any one particular sin. All of us must repent, regardless of how minor our sin may seem to us.

    Remember that to say to people, "Repent!" is not enough of the gospel message for them to really understand. They have to repent and BELIEVE on Jesus for salvation. Perhaps you are directing your comments when you hear them talking about a sinful habit of theirs or sinful lifestyles. Those sinful habits and things are beside the point until the person gets saved. They must see their need for salvation first, then believe on Christ, and then Christ helps them reform their lives after they are saved.
