Lessons on Evangelism from an Atheist

Filed under: "I couldn't have said it better myself" and "Aslan is on the Move"
Here is a surprising insight from Penn (of Penn & Teller fame) on the issue of evangelism (video is 5:11 & well worth your time):

He says,
I don't respect people who don't proselytize. If you believe that there's a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, 'Well, it's not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward'... How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?

I actually met him once in Daytona Beach, Florida during the intermission to their show. He is a REALLY nice guy in person but his foul rantings and atheism really saddens me.

So much talent...wasted.

Let's hope he reads that little Gideon Bible that some courageous & intelligent Christian gave him. He was obviously moved by this.
