    Hi! Thank you for this post. Actually, I’m not very familiar with this topic but after reading your post, it’s clear now! Keep up the good posts like this. Take care!

    Good post.

    I’ve always been concerned with the “confrontational” approach of Western Christianity and find that many people today (including non-Westerners) are very much “turned off” by this approach.

    I think Christianity would be more attractive to others if we spent more time trying to build bridges than constructing walls.

    This doesn’t mean that we don’t have to stop teaching what we believe to be true, but our “truth” should be used less like a hammer to bludgeon others with than a hammer to help build these bridges.

    Thanks for the insight.

    Enjoyed this post, Mike. Any good reading recommendations on the early Asian and African expressions of Christ-following?

    Hi Mike,

    I’ve enjoyed several of your entries and am interested in linking to your blog from our’s. I think you’ll also appreciate our blog as it has so many similarities to your’s! We talk a lot about a “Monday Church” and wholistic ministry. Grace and peace to you,

    People compelled to angry confrontation may need to evaluate their own sense of security about their beliefs. But the philosophic apologists who are “salt & light” while arguing their faith can be both attractive and assertive.

    Hey Mike,

    I really like this post. Confrontational Christianity reflects more on Christian’s insecurities than anything else. There is no need for it if we really believe that what we have is the truth. Instead of taking that truth and hoarding it, we need to find common ground with people of other beliefs and look for the pieces of truth they might also have since ultimately “all truth is God’s truth” (not in the sense that all religions are true, but to not be shocked or uncomfortable when a truth in another religion lines up with a truth of Christianity-just shows that it is indeed the truth). Jesus was about unity and not just standing firm in your stance.

    PS–I too would be interested on further readings about early Asian and African expressions of Christianity.
