“We do not draw people to Christ by loudly discrediting what they believe, by telling them how wrong they are and how right we are, but by showing them a light that is so lovely that they want with all their hearts to know the source of it.”
Show the lovely light!
But we cannot give what we do not have. When ugliness replaces beauty we’ve succumbed to the angry spirit of the age.
Christians must call out those who do it. We’re not in heaven yet, but we don’t need to create more hell than there already is down here.
