Must…resist…urge…to…reason…

I’ve really got to stop talking to street preachers:

Dude: “POPULARITY! SENSUALITY! BEING THE POPULAR GIRL! HAVING SEX! YOU NEED TO REPENT!”

Me: “Um, hi, I’m a Christian and I don’t thi-”

Dude: Oh, hello brother. “AMERICAN IDOL!”

Me: “Huh?”

Dude: “Sorry, that’s a form of idolatry I hadn’t mentioned yet.”

Me: “Um, right…It’s not a favorite show of mine either, but anyways-while I’m sure that many of these folks are involved in sin, I’m concerned that talking about that more than we talk about Jesus is-”

Dude: “Jesus told us to preach, right here in Matthew 10:27.”

Me: “Right, but it seems the way he preached was less yelling and more dialog. Like with the woman at the well. He sat down and talked through her life with her, and brought Himself to bear on her situation. He was honest with her about her sin, but also very loving.”

Dude: “No, she started talking to Him. He didn’t start talking to her. He was just hanging out at a well; He wasn’t out doing evangelism.”

Me: “I’m pretty sure He knew who would be there at the same time as Him.”

Dude: “No, scripture says He had to stop, not that He wanted to.”

Me: “Uh, I don’t kno-”

Dude: “You aren’t trying to make friends with the Gospel, are you?”

Me: “What?”

Dude: “We’re supposed to preach, not be all nicey-nicey.”

Me: “I have to go to class…”

Dude: “God bless you brother; if you love ’em, you’ll warn ’em!”

Ironic when someone who considers himself a soldier for  Jesus manages to reject Jesus as a model for sharing Jesus. Sigh…
