STOP THE INSANITY!!!


Evangecandy? Puhleese! 


Somehow we have this notion that we can actually 'win' people for God's Kingdom with this kind of kitch. Since when is sharing our lives about winning anything? Is this a game? Do we honestly need 'lead-ins' and tricks to manipulate conversations? Isn't it about sharing our life and living our faith and journeying with people in a relational way so they experience the triune (community) God's relationship and love?
As Danny Devito (Phil Cooper) in The Big Kahuna says:
It doesn't matter whether you're selling Jesus or Buddha or civil rights or 'How to Make Money in Real Estate With No Money Down.' That doesn't make you a human being; it makes you a marketing rep. If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it's not a conversation anymore; it's a pitch. And you're not a human being; you're a marketing rep. 

Stop the insanity!
