I had a dialogue with several men on Saturday evening. The conversation went well for about half an hour. Then we got into discussing how to share our spirituality with others. One of the men said that we had an obligation to tell someone that if they did not get Jesus in their life and repent, they would go to hell. I and another gentleman felt that was a rather direct and somewhat harsh method to tell someone about Jesus. We stressed that we would rather just dialogue with the other person and not tell that person they would go to hell if they did not change their lifestyle. The "you will go to hell" person is a Deacon in a church, bible study leader, and was trained to think and speak the way he does. This after a life of not being a model citizen. He is very sincere in his beliefs which is his right. But me and the other man felt it was a somewhat rigid attitude to take towards someone else. My thoughts were to just continue a dialog with the non believer and listen to what they have to say, and why they think the way they do. I personally would rather take that approach. When the time was right, I would then bring up the "technical" aspects of giving your life to God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit. Whatever I become in my spiritual walk, I do not ever want to become a "one way or the highway " Christian.
