I am a devout Christian. With that said, I would also say that Christianity is not merely a religion but a relationship with the Almighty Creator, Jesus Christ. There is too much at stake to just keep my beliefs to myself. There is one and only one universal truth. After weighing all the possibilities of various world views, Christianity makes the most sense to me as described in the Bible. There is much to say about that, but I won't bring it up here.
On one hand, my faith and logic tells me that God's eternal kingdom is purely exclusive to only those who accept and trust in Jesus Christ while the rest will receive judgment in hell. Again, this all makes perfect sense to me and am not merely accepting it because a book tells me so. So, you can see that my beliefs compel me to share this truth with everyone like a doctor finding a cure for cancer and advertises it to everyone.
On another note just as you said, it is often better to talk WITH people rather talk TO them. I usually try to reason with people by asking questions and analyzing their thoughts and asking more questions. My desire is to get them to think critically and challenge their world view. I believe it to be a dangerous thing to concoct our views purely from our hearts. Speculation about who God is or is not is like playing Russian roulette with a semi-auto pistol. We must receive special revelation from God to know who He is and what He is like. God does desire us to know who He is and that's why He sent Jesus Christ, because He is the perfect and exact imprint of God. Jesus is God incarnate. The other revelation we have from God is His word, the Bible, which of course also gives description of Jesus.
I hope you find Christ to be the Truth and the only means to salvation--eternal life with God while escaping Judgment and the wrath of God.
