Now here’s an angry response from a person who doesn’t like the way I evangelize.

Steve, Can you take me off the [E-vangie Tales] list please?
Your stories make me sad for the most part. It seems that the “bull in the china shop approach” is what you think is right; when you’re not being effective for the Kingdom at all—it seems you’re “offending for the Kingdom.” You may think this is progress, but I know far too many who evangelize in a different fashion, who lead people to Christ regularly because they are sensitive to God’s Spirit as they share—and people are ministered to, or converted by them.
I think you might be wise to consider other means than “offending” people… People need Jesus badly, and He normally meets people right where they’re at—at their point of need, not in just bashing them. The Heaven and Hell question isn’t always relevant at a first meeting…but then, the Lord needs to speak to you about this. I will continue to pray that He will direct you in your passion to share about Him.
