Evangelism and Atheism

Penn Gillette, comedian, magician, and outspoken atheist, shares a story about receiving a Bible.



For some reason, watching this was really convicting for me. I had to ask myself, how often do I actually share the Gospel with people outside of a "church" context? Do I care enough about my neighbors living on either side of me to get to know them and share the Gospel with them? Where is the balance between being pushy/preachy and being loving? Money quote:
How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?
Ouch.
