    When a person begins to discuss his faith, others have the choice of listening, ignoring or walking away.. To tell you I am a Christian should not bother you. You have the option of ignoring me, asking questions, disagreeing or walking away.

    I agree about imposition. Definitely nix that. But not all discussion is imposition.

    We need a definition of personal. You ask me if I am a Christian who believes in God and Heaven and I say yes. If you ask me the time, I look at my watch. If you sneeze, I will say God Bless You. If you ask a question about faith, I will answer.

    I agree with a lot of what you said. Why I don't care what anyone believes, it seems to be commonly accepted that religions have the right to impose their morality on society and that is just plain wrong.

    Brilliant parallel, Attikos. Should the Germans have kept quiet 80 years ago while tyranny grew? Should Americans keep quiet while the same thing happens in their beloved land?

    Could preaching be different from imposing? Imposing is wrong, yes. But preaching is compassionate, for the rescue is a compassionate mission to reawaken the dead asleep children of God. Imagine a car wreck and fire.

    Beautiful, Larry. In a rescue mission, communication is vital.
