Fifty Shades of Grey can be considered romantic only because the guy is a billionaire businessman. If he were poor and lived in a trailer then it would be a Criminal Minds episode.
I hate when people use the word ‘convert’ to describe Christians’ influence on nonbelievers. When I witness to someone my goal is not to ‘convert’ them. My goal is to reveal to them that they are forgiven and that they are loved with an everlasting love. I want for their souls to be saved by Jesus Christ who died for them. I don’t want to ‘convert’ them, I want to ‘rescue’ them from themselves and the empty life they are living. My intentions are selfless. I do it because I care. Just the thought of anyone going to Hell makes me shudder. I don’t even want to imagine my closest friends missing out on Heaven. The word ‘convert’ makes it sound like you’re trying to reach a quota. Like whoever ‘converts’ the most people is going to get some special reward in Heaven. But, for me, it’s not about that. I want for them to be ‘rescued’. As if they’ve gone overboard and need someone to care enough to throw them a rope. I don’t need to rescue a certain amount of people to feel like I’m doing enough. All I need to do is try.
For the Son of Man has come to save the lost
The Christian Examiner published an article on Thursday centered around the opinion of a women I go to church with. She is very open about what she believes on the matter, and she knows that her opinion is not widely accepted. But she went ahead and said it anyway. And I’m glad she did, because someone had to.
