So today I was writing a letter to my girlfriend. It contained my thoughts for the day. One of those thoughts intrigued me very much. I go to a Christian university and I have an evangelism class. And for that class we have to write our testimony as a paper or a paper on why you are not a Christian. My professor stated some reasons why some people don’t believe (I’m not justifying this just stating what happened) and one of those reasons was a common reason. “Why should I believe in God when Christians don’t act like Christians.” I thought to myself “why are people judging Christianity on the basis of fallen men and women. Why aren’t they judging Christianity based upon Jesus. I said this to my friend and his response gave me revelation. He said, “we do that also. What do you think of when I talk about Islamic faith. You judge them based upon their actions.” He taught me not to worry about what others think of Christianity, rather have Christ transform us. That’s where it hit me. It is not about who has the best argument. It is not about who can find the most holes in someone’s theory. It is not about apologetics. That is not what we are called to do. It is all about spreading the gospel. That is what we are called to do.
