“How Much Do You Have to Hate Somebody Not to Proselytize?”

Ed Stetzer posted this video to his blog today and it’s worth watching and meditating on. It’s of Penn Jillette, a comedian and illusionist who happens to be an atheist, describing a recent encounter he had with a Christian.

Penn 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?

    Wow!!! That encounter obviously had an impact on him. Oh that God would remove the veil from his eyes.
