An atheist's perspective on evangelism

This is pretty powerful stuff from the atheist Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller):
"“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?”"

(HT:Ray Ortlund)

  2. That was pretty good coming from him. There something to be said when an Atheist tells us that even we should examine our own hearts to see that we really believe what we say we believe.
