Somehow I don't know how to interpret this. I mean does this mean that we, as christians, have to talk about Jesus with everybody we know and also with strangers? There is this guy, Ray Comfort, who has his style of evangelizing which is showing the people with the 10 commandments that they are sinners and then he asks them if God would send them to heaven or hell according to their sins and then most of them say hell. He says this works with everybody even with atheists but the problem is even if you convince an atheist that he is guilty according to the 10 commandments this will not impress him at all cause he doesn't believe in God. The question is do we as christians have to go to everybody we know and talk with them about Jesus? I don't know but I wouldn't even know what to say. I have tried this a few times on the internet and it never worked it always resulted in discussions about evolutions and such things and I am not good at this and these discussions are also exhausting and in most cases I'm confused afterwards. I tried to talk about God to my family members and it always resulted either in discussions or disagreement or arguing. I ask myself where is the sense of this? I am not good at evangelizing and it has never worked and I also don't feel comfortable talking to strangers about Jesus I wouldn't even know what to say. I know people which study with me and I have never talked to them about Jesus simply because I don't think they would be open. I think it would end in a discussion about evolution or the bible and they would come up with claims and most likely I wouldn't know all answers and then they would be even more convinced that the bible is a joke. I am not an apologist. I don't have all the answers. I would most likely not be able to win a debate and then they would be even more convinced that they are right and maybe my faith would even suffer from this. So why should I go out and talk to people and maybe even harm my own faith? Trying to talk about Jesus can be very frustrating when you see that the other one isn't interested. My personal opinion about witnessing to people is that witnessing out of a feeling of having to do it because God wants it isn't very helpful. My opinion is that when you notice that there is a situation where you get to talk about God with somebody and where there is an opportunity to share something then it's okay because God created this situation but simply talking to people and trying to convince them doesn't make sense. Or am I wrong? What do you think? What if I die and God is angry because I didn't warn others and share my faith? Many christians use this firefighter analogy where a house is burning and a family is dying and a firefighter sits in the car and doesn't help and then they say this is the same as a christian who doesn't warn the people. I think this analogy is not good at all. I mean think about it. Do you really think it would help the people if I went to them and warned them of hell and tell them they have to repent or they will go to hell? Imagine me going from house to house and warning them about hell. They would think I'm a lunatic. This wouldn't help anyone. This would even strengthen them in their feeling that christians are nuts. Simply warning the people doesn't help them because they don't take it seriously. Imagine you're a non-christian and in the shopping mall there is somebody standing there and preaching about hell, wouldn't you think that this is a lunatic from some sect and laugh about it? I would. This is how people react to something like this. So I think that when you think that you have done a great job simply telling people that they go to hell if they don't repent then you're wrong. This doesn't really accomplish much. Or what do you think? Somehow I feel like I'm forced to go out and talk to people even though I don't know what to say. How shall I know if it's from God or not? After listening to Ray Comfort I feel as if I have to witness to every person which I see on the street and I don't know if this is really from God or wether I'm simply being obsessed with this and afraid of not obeying God. How do I know if God wants me to talk to somebody or not? Or does God want me to talk to everybody? Does God want me to go from house to house? Does Jesus saying that we shall preach to every creature mean that we, as christians, do not need an extra command from God in order to witness to a certain person but that God has already told us to witness to everybody and this means we HAVE TO witness to everybody. No matter if it's a witch or an atheist or a muslim or a mormon and we have to witness to them and go to their hourses? Or would this be silly because you might also get yourself into danger?
