The sentiments you express in your response are exactly the reasons I wrote this and believe actions speak louder than words and personal relationships are more important than trying to make converts. Jesus above all called for mercy, love and faith. Lived out in reality, these traits should produce compassion and kindness, not judgment and strife.
Of course there will be times when people should know why they believe the way they do and be able to express their beliefs within the context of an interesting and nonconfrontational discussion. Sharing differences of opinion and belief make life interesting and allow us to glimpse other perspectives. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond.
