Are You a Bible Bully?*

Did you know that you can present you faith and Bible beliefs in an unbiblical manner even if what you believe is right and true? Many Christians mistakenly believe that being bold in presenting the gospel gives them the right to be a Bible bully. They bash faiths and other Christian denominations without concern for the people they are trying to reach. Using a no-tolerance and in-your-face approach they bully their beliefs on their subjects like a school kid robbing his schoolmates of their lunch money -- and their dignity. What is absent is the love of Jesus and the respect others deserve and require. 

When sharing you faith others, remember that you must earn the right to be heard. Instead of playing demolish-derby with their faith, try being respectful and listen. By doing so, you will earn the right to present the truth; and when you do, do so in a loving and kind manner. 

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger. James 1:19 ESV
