This is exactly why our nation is in such a mess. Folks try to take Our faith in God out of everything except the church. If you are a believer in Christ then he is in everything you do. If Christians will vote their conscience and repent for the sins of our nation perhaps God will hear our prayers and help our nation. I don’t see how a believer cannot share his faith wherever he goes.
That can be a blessing and a problem. For some, bearing witness at all times is the fabric of their life. For others, as true in their faith as the former, preaching to the choir is unnecessary and wearing. Scripture exhorts the faithful to bear witness. Does that mean with every breath? Did Christ not talk about other things? One wonders. His ministry is documented to a degree....not every moment though. Christ had no Bosworth. There were many more suppers before the last one. What did they talk about? If Christ was truly a carpenter, what was he like in the shop? what did he do and say as a teenager? No way to know.
My wife has a friend, a fellow that she has known since early grammar school. Career military, we attended his retirement at Ft. Leonard Wood more than twenty years ago. Stayed in his home. He went to full time ministry upon retirement and often stayed in our home when he came to NYC to "street witness". He is a very nice, very dedicated man. He has the best of intentions.
She no longer talks to him. There was no scene. No horrible falling out. Why then?
Because he does not talk about anything else other than his calling and his work.
Churchill's definition of a fanatic comes to mind - at least part of it - "a person who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." The word fanatic is perhaps a bit strong and has negative connotations that do not apply and no one asked Bill to change his mind. He could at least change the subject.... but he can't.
Many of us, on these fora, have been posting for years. We can pretty much predict what so-and-so is going to post if it at all touches on politics or religion (often together). Is this bad? No.
Often, maybe always, posts are a way of venting the spleen. If someone is disliked, though, he is called a troll. If he is a long time contributor, he is not. Venting the spleen here is often a way of preaching to the choir...feel good...atta boy.
