    Why do you need to? Why not do what works for you and let others do what works for them?

      Good, peeples. But would you stand by while someone was drowning, if you could help? If the drowning person didn't want help, simply leave them. But it would be criminal not to ask, first.

    I'd assume you would follow the Biblical model for disseminating Christianity, right? However, what you may not realize is that many of these so-called "Non-Christians" did in fact at one time follow the Christian faith. Some however, have come to see glaring holes in the teachings and many unanswered questions. Some have left the "faith" because of a severe lack of empirical evidence for its claims. How do you propose to "reach" those people?

      You just have to accept that God hasn't given us all the answers yet.

    I think the only way to make a positive influence (with anything) is to lead by example. If you're a good, considerate person, people will see your beliefs as a positive influence. Or, at least they wouldn't see them as a negative influence. Actively trying to lecture people who aren't asking for it is more likely to turn them away. Think of yourself as a beacon rather than a search and rescue ship. It will make your life better and strengthen the relationships you have with non-christians.

      Very true. Actions surely do speak louder than words.

      Beautiful, M.T. This is what Christ taught. He said to spread the word, not to beat other people over the head with it. For those who are not interested, simply leave them. The problem is ego -- the very thing Christ came to help remove

    Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary, use words.

    There are many ways to accomplish this, self imposed, task. History is replete with strategies to accomplish that very goal. Fear and guilt are always good. For example, you might teach that if you do not believe in my god you will burn forever in hell. You are born a sinful creature, an abomination in the eye of the lord and therefore you must repent. You must relinquish your life to the will of god and become his servant. There is always the threat of burning one alive at the stake, which took several hundred thousand lives or you can outlaw medicine and then  claim that illness was a sign from god of an impure soul. Another strategy that worked well was the Inquisitions or the  many Catholic and Protestant wars and that does not include the Crusades. We must not forget the Christian burning of libraries, most notable, of course, was the Library at Alexandria where thousand of ancient manuscripts were destroyed.
    We must not forget the intolerance of the early church fathers like Augustine and others, who promoted torture and death of unbelievers. And Constantine, without whom Christianity would not exist.
    The strategies are endless and they worked. Perhaps, it is best to deny the history of the founding actions and intolerance of your religion and simply say that Christianity is a loving and caring philosophy that has simply been misunderstood.
    I hope I helped.

    Simply share!

    If someone is not interested, then respect their wishes. Leave and share with someone who is interested. This is what Christ taught his disciples. Too many so-called Christians are ignoring his teachings.

    The problem is ego -- the very thing Christ came to help us remove. For he said that the first (egotistical) shall be last, and the last (humble) shall become first.

    Sin isn't something arbitrary that we were born with. Sin was our own decision to take on ego (the product of the Tree of Knowledge).

    Ego is separation. Ego is self-concern. Ego is the antithesis of Love.

    So, simply love those to whom you spread the message. If they're not interested, then they will suffer until they become interested. It's their choice, just like it was their choice to cloak themselves in ego, so very long ago.

    As an atheist, I can say the simply answer is don't. Speaking from the the perspective of an atheist, I can say that I have thought about the various religious claims and have read/watched much about religion.

    So coming up to me and proclaiming the word of god or something will not be met with kind words and will be met with various questions that many religious people don't like to answer.

    But it's simply, I don't approach religious people about my views on religion or my atheism. I can only hope for the same courtesy.

    By action: be compassionate, loving, and forgiving. Then they might ask you how you do this. They then just 'opened the door' for you to walk through. bandbseminars.com

      You know, people without religion or the Christian religion are able to demonstrate genuine compassion, love, and forgiveness...sometime even more than Christians.

      Krill
      I just read on another thread that you were going to kill a god. Is there a little contradiction here or is such thinking typical of Christianity?

      Of course, Robert. My statement was not exclusionary to atheists or any other faith tradition. I have know many, many non-Christians that do this to excellence.
