I just wrote a new hub this morning and after I hit the publish button, I knew I could not take my words back unless I delete or edit. As Christians the only license we need to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ is knowing what to say, when to say it and the reason for saying it. I myself prefer to start with words written by the Apostle Paul in Romans, then in John, then on to Ephesians and Phillipians. Even though knowing that I am too a sinner, I know that I can confess my sin, ask Jesus to stand with me, put on the whole Armor of God and do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens us. Share the message with all in season, it is our duty as faith holders to do this! Do you agree? God Bless...
Actually - it is really annoying and one of the reasons the christian faith is despised across the world.
So - you think you are worthless, but because an invisible mythical being did something magic - you think you are qualified to minister to other people? Talk about the blind leading the blind......
Move a mountain for me or walk on water or something. Now - that would impress me. Empty, meaningless rhetoric from some one who does not even understand his own book?
No so impressive.....

The first century Christians did not go out in the streets looking for non believers to preach to. They worked within their own family groups. And even then they only made their beliefs available to be heard. They didn't push it on family members. That would even push family away how much more would that be true for a non family member.
Ya open a jar of honey and the fly will come. Ya don't go out catching flys to put in the Jar.
How ever We do have a right to expect to be able to come to the forums and have discussion with like minded people.
Where do you get off assuming you have a license to spread the gospel? You don't.
No, unequivocally do not agree. It is not your duty to spread the gospel. Keep your delusions to yourself, please.
Kinda a roundabout way of saying it, but if you mean are followers of Christ authorized to spread the Gospel, then yes of course we are. We're authorized and commissioned by God Himself.
I've said this to so many preaching Christians.
By shunning the beliefs of others (instead of embracing them and explaining your own, and allowing them to chose), you are driving people away from Christianity, and therefore savior.
By definition, you are doing the work of Satan.
Congrats, for you have damned yourself to hell (if it actually exists, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't).
I don't think you would be interested in hearing me say, "My cat talks to me," would you? Even if I believe that my cat can talk...I think you would declare me delusional. That's the way some nonbelievers feel about believer's mental status. Staunch believers have no "good news" to deliver to anyone, just the same old delusional, tired, worn-out nonsense.
The good news that I can bring is that, through our ministry, we have provided homes and employment for 60 previously homeless veterans
and are currently housing a number of families who were previously living out of boxes and such. Collectively, their lives while homeless were without hope. They now have that and much more.
So, we ourselves don't pay much attention to the same old worn out drivel
either. We just get it done for those society has tossed aside. Have a nice day.
For what it's worth, the original title of this topic was "Do you need a license to preach the gospel?" This question refers, most likely, to the requirement mankind puts on individuals so that marriage proceedings and other such events can be decreed as having been performed by an ordained minister and such.
Mankind developed the term religion as he has done with so many other things. To place a label or to include within a given category suits the desire to put everything in neat little boxes which somehow makes it easier to comprehend.
Yeah that would be called language. It's how we communicate. Mankind creates a concept, like religion or prejudism, and then to refer to that concept while in communication with others, we give these concepts names. Most people consider that a good thing. But maybe yer right and it would be better if mankind just kept all their crazy thoughts to themselves. Good point.

You should be absolutely christian or the christians will absolutely chastize you. They talk about love, but they seem to hate more.

Sincce Christian friends claim that bible is the inspired word of God, even though there is no such book as "Gospel of Jesus". All we find today are the Gospels written by those who didn't live and know Jesus...

I was reading an article on the net which advocated that God's law of the old testament no longer applied after Jesus' death. By dying he released people from the law to serve the new way of spirit and not the old way...
