    In John we are commanded by Jesus to spread the word.

    Also.

    Ezekiel 3:17-21 warns us that if we do not spread the word those we could have told of God's word that sin and do wicked will not only bring themselves down but us also as we are responsible for those we do nt inform.

    easy answer is we are commanded to.

    No one will be saved apart from hearing the gospel.

    This question gets asked repeatedly by the non believers as they try to silence us.

    I am just providing context for those that are sometimes confused by the question. We have a few Christians here that are easily swayed.

    This thread is in response to previous threads by people demanding to know why Christians "bother" others with their faith. It is reinforcement for those Christians that are easily swayed by demands by non believers to leave them alone and not spread the word.

    So when Christians spread their religion it's A-OK

    But when muslims do the exact same thing you go crazy and even start a thread about it. :cool:
