Dewey BS: God's simple plan of salvation... (94* d) RE: BS: God's simple plan of salvation... 10 Sep 04


I am a Christian myself, yet to this day there is something about the Tract-pushing style of Christianity that gets my goat.

You can't convince anybody of anything unless their heart is ready. Ususally tract pushing has the opposite effect, it leads people away from Christ instead of toward.

There is a time and a place!

Please don't give me a tract, when I deliver a pizza to your door. I HATE when this happens!

There is something condescending and self-rightous about tract peddlers.

I believe in their sincerity but not their methods, religion is personal, and not contained in the person's execution of alot of miscellaneous Bible quotes to a captive listener who may not be in the mode to hear it, or even tolerate the views.
