Letter: Christians need to come out of their prayer closets, not compromise truths

With so many lies floating around these days, it seems even good people tend to believe them or compromise their knowledge of the truth. For instance, some of us Christians think we can overcome evil with a new law to protect our sensibilities from someone else's offensive behavior.

Isn't it time for all Christians to come out of our prayer closets and comfortable churches and "go out into the highway and hedges and compel" those offensive folks to come into the safety of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

The best defense has always been a good offense - "be not overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good," says no less a Christian than Saint Paul in Romans 12:21.

The best way to influence a lost society or culture is to speak the Truth to people who we believe have believed lies. Those of us who believe God and His Word, have been commanded to share His power to change a life, to give others a reason for the hope we've found in God.

Business owners, give your customers your very best, ask God to help and protect you, share His Truth in love, and trust Him for the future.

While it appears that your motives are sincere, your methods are in need of some revision, my friend. Yes, Christians are to go and "spread the Gospel", that being the Great Commission. However, this does not mean beating people over the head because they do not agree with what you deem as something "Christians need to do". Believers take their cues from God, who speaks to those who are in earnest prayer in their prayer closets and comfy churches. It has been said, "they will know you by your fruits".......

Dear Eleanor.

You suggest that Christians should "go out and compel" those offensive folks to find Jesus.
Really? Are you not aware that it has been done in the past? It was called the Spanish Inquisition.
Once you have forced your beliefs on this group that you find offensive who will be next? The Jews? People who like Rock music? Maybe we can go after people who say OMG instead of using the actual words.
