  1. This is an excellent example of lovingly sharing the gospel. Thank you for your boldness!

    • It matters not who we are speaking with, it’s always important to;

      “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” (Colossians 4:6)

  2. Repost from the last post hahah:

    Its a shame the man didn’t pick up on your subtext Steve, you know… how you were essentially calling yet not calling him, a false Christian, much like the sign guy across the street, or how you said you aren’t judging him, but really you are judging him as essentially dishonest in his beliefs. Do you think this style of subterfuge is effective Steve? Why not boldly proclaim that he is wrong, you have ‘THE TRUTH’ after all. Do you think when this man dies he will be turned away from heaven? Do you think once he gets into heaven he’ll suddenly become attracted to women?

      Why not boldly proclaim that he is wrong, you have ‘THE TRUTH’ after all. Why do YOU think I did it this way?

      Do you think when this man dies he will be turned away from heaven? Yes.

      Do you think once he gets into heaven he’ll suddenly become attracted to women? You are in error and do not know the Scriptures. We will be like the angels, with no marriage. We will all be attracted to the Living God!

      • As Vin has said (almost)

        “Ladies and Gentleman… Steve !!! lets give the man a big round of applause and thank him for giving such a pertinent answer!”

        And i’m sure he’ll do the same in the future! :<)

      • I don’t remember Vin saying this. Reference?

  3. perhaps you don’t see yourself clearly Steve, I watched and thought you were judgmental, you don’t have to use hate language to be judgmental, you just need to say to someone your actions are wrong, thus you are judging them. So what if you say ‘I was once wrong as well, but look at me, i have now repented , you can too,’ that is beside the point, your belief system is yours , and by saying, my ways are right and yours are wrong, is judging a person.
    While I respect your right to believe whatever you like, I don’t think you have a right to judge anyone who does not agree with you, which you clearly do.
    So you use the bible saying its not you but God’s word, again that is clearly what you think, but many others think other books/writings are from God. Until you or anyone can offer irrefutable proof, all you have is, well that’s what I believe, hearsay evidence does not count.

    I watched and thought he wasn’t!

    • I spoke and told him he was already judged!

      • so you were judging him based on what you consider to be a standard which you think lets you judge another human being. It is only based on and completely subjective to your thinking that the bible has any moral worth. You live under a belief system that judges others, and yet is full of moral inconsistencies.

      • I didn’t judge him at all. Can you tell me where you got this notion?

      • Is not there a difference between “being judgmental” and letting him know that “God” has already judge him? (Jn. 3:18)

      • Hi Steve L,

        It’s only a different if you believe that the scripture quoted is accurate, correctly interpreted, and true.

        I understand that YOU believe that the scripture quoted is accurate, correctly interpreted, and true, but that doesn’t mean that other people agree with you.

        Which is the entire crux of the matter.

      Isn’t Blythe the one being judgemental?

      Blythe probably has a bumper sticker that says, “I hate people who hate.”

      • Schamder,

        Blythe appears to be doing an observation, and including her opinion, which is different.

        I think you’ve misread her comment.

  5. Well done Pastor Steve that was a great one-2-one! That is such a great way to go about speaking to anyone bottom line! May God open his eyes to the truth and to the many others you speak too!!
