Evangelism as Spam

Here is a fascinating article by an atheist advising us Christians how to bear witness to Jesus Christ.

I was struck by his point that we often come across as spammers. Funny that—it seems to be the main problem many Christians I know have with programs for evangelism.

Perhaps if we majored on consistency of life (deed and word); on truth telling and listening; if we majored on being hospitable and respectful; in fact just being more Christlike (in his word—being ‘prototypes’ of Christ), we’d be witnessing far more directly to the one we love.

Just a thought!
