Is it to socially awkward to speak The Truth?

Does my life reflect what I believe? How about my words?

Is my faith in God the most important thing in my life?

Then why don’t I proselytize? By that I mean reflect God in my thoughts, words, actions, calendar, and checkbook. If I am doing that, am I stepping into the opportunities to talk about faith (proselytizing) with those around me?

This quote by an atheist hit me between the eyes. I found it on page 113 of a book by Phil Cooke and Jonathan Bock called The Way Back.

I’ve always said that I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. I don’t respect that at all. If you believe that there’s heaven and a hell, and people could be going to hell or not getting eternal life, and you think that it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward…how much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate somebody to believe everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?
