An atheist who frequents this blog took issue with some of the techniques I teach at the Ambassadors’ Academy, the training arm of The Way of the Master. In this post, I explained how attendees learned to preach in elevators, at stop lights and on top of cement trash cans. Students would pass or fail depending on if someone shouted “Shaadaap!” or not. A “Shaadaap!” was a good thing earning a “Pass.”
This is what the atheist, named Perdita, wrote:
“I think you guys get off on being jerks. You’re not happy until someone gets annoyed and then you can cry persecution.”
“Elevator evangelizing – also jerky behavior. Steve, anytime you’re cornering people where they can’t leave (like, oh for example, an elevator) or where it would be difficult to leave (maybe, perhaps in the middle of lunch at a restaurant), then you’re behaving like a jerk.”
How would you answer her, evangelists? Does she make a good point?
