What Do You Think About This?

You can watch this documentary online for free today here. I want to know your opinion about it. I think his premise is wrong from the start, but I'll get to that later. Watch it and let me know what you think.

What's the problem? I thought a lot of very good points were made.

Thanks for pointing this out. Very thought provoking. Going to get the husband to watch with me tonight and I'll be back tomorrow to discuss.

Mark and I actually thought this was really well done. I'm wondering if your problem was because perhaps you felt like he thought we should never stand up for truth or point out errors in the ways of others? I'm not sure.

In my book believers and unbelievers should be treated differently. When dealing with unbelievers I believe establishing a relationship with them is more important that whacking them on the head with the gospel. In a "you may be the only Bible someone reads" manner. After they see you are not going to be combative a door will open for you to share the Gospel at some point and then in my opinion it's the Holy Spirit's job to convict them on their lifestyle choices. Don't join them in their sin, but love them and let your example be Christ to them.

To me, the particular "sins" or whatever that he pointed out, the "hot buttons" if you will are more our job to point out to the BELIEVERS who are not choosing to turn from their poor choices. It is believers that need to be pointed toward the law, not unbelievers. We shouldn't be surprised to see unbelievers living with outward sin (we all have sin),so I don't think the sins of unbelievers should be treated in the same way.

A little love and compassion goes a long way. Building relationships goes even farther. If we can be a light in the dark corners of the world, the Holy Spirit will pursue their hearts and He will do the convicting where there needs to be.

I will be very interested to hear your thoughts!
