I noticed many people get labeled as bible thumpers. How not to come across too brash and condescending, appearing un-Christ like, when discussing the gospels?
What I do on this board and how I spread the message off the board are two different things. I first came out on this board in a "hey I'm a Christian, I have some material for you to read. If you're interested PM me" Then the God bashing began. Well I just couldn't let people say incorrect things about God and Christian in general so I began to correct them. Eventually the really radical Atheist began ranting and so I moved to a more combative nature. They were radical Atheists so I became a radical preacher. Hence I was named a Bible-thumper around here. But anyone who knows me, knows that I never get preachy in person because no one is asking me anything. I just try to live my life in accordance with the word.
I am extremely humble in my approach off the board and even on the board to those who want to have a genuine question or comment or an opposing argument. But to those who are Bible-burners, I become the Bible-thumper.
