Man, there is this preacher in town that virtually shouts the gospel in peoples faces - I dont blame the people for getting fed up with being bible bashed by him.

What really got me though is that he walked down the other side of my road and he said hello and me being a turkey I said hello back.

I still pray for him though I just dont want to encourage ear bashing in public as people are getting well annoyed and going anti-Christian because of it.

There is a real life practical example of how we need to give a reason the hope we have but do it with gentleness and respect.

Tell me if I sound like I am blowing my horn but I felt so good the other night - the best I have felt for ages; I gave some homeless dude my socks and a bible and sorted him out as much as I could. I am sharing that as I got no one else to share it with, which is why I am am going to buy a small dog lol.

I am a trying my best recusive Christian who speaks to very few people. When I was last attending ⛪ they told me they were going that Saturday into the city to spread the good news of the lord. I wasn?t comfortable with that because i don?t appreciate strangers approaching me in the street-however good the cause. Right or wrong?  I do know that the gospels specifically say that a Christian it is our duty to spread the word and help others find salvation and avoid condemnation. But 1000 people could have come up to me about the lord and I wouldn?t have listened probably. When I felt the need for Christian input and church I just googled ?churches near me?. Blowing your own horn? Yes you did a good thing most people wouldn?t. I give to charity every week and sometimes buy a big issue. Now I?ve blown my horn/trumpet aswell🙂😇. But apparently pride can be sinful without acknowledging the lords help. But I think 💭 there?s a BIG difference between being rightly pleased with yourself and sinful pride. You probably made that preaching guy feel good👍

           The church where a leader comes to do a bible study and the church where they go and seek to evangelise sound like a good church, if they are the same, I would suggest attending that church.

One reason for attending chuch is to encourage others by our attendance.
Church's often advertise many activities, you are not compeled to join every event.

Any church where a leader is prepared to visit you for bible study is one worth looking into attending.

Mike thanks for that post you gave me encouragement. It did help me and well done for the stuff you did too.

We do have to be careful of blowing our horn though and I get worried sometimes that my own head has been swelling up recently lol:

Matthew 6:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Best way as then He really blesses you after if your heart was good.

I am not saying the "seeks his own desire bit" and Proverbs are mainly just principles but you have to be careful man.

Proverbs 18:1 English Standard Version (ESV)
Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire;
    he breaks out against all sound judgment.
