The “Christian” Left would never make it in sales. Despite what their own book says they reflexively insist that all these religions lead to God. No wonder their denominations are shrinking!
These people don’t even have the knowledge and/or the guts to claim that their way is right. It would be like a salesman for HP saying that the potential customer should just stick with his current vendor.
HP salesman: Who is your IT vendor?
Customer: We currently use Dell.
HP salesman: Oh, never mind. They are all pretty much the same.
Of course, the HP salesman would be fired in minutes.
Yet this is precisely what the “Christian” Left does.
Now if you want effective marketing, look to the LGBTQX lobby. In a perverted twist on the able-to-sell-ice-to-Eskimos bit, these people have sold sodomy to school kids — and with the hearty approval of many of their parents! They took a God-mocking, disease ridden lifestyle and made it dangerous to even criticize. Now that’s marketing.
But of course, as Christians, we don’t have to lie and pressure people to “sell” our message. We just speak the truth in love. And if people reject it, that’s OK. Jesus warned us that most people will. But it still honors him to speak his truth, whether people accept it or not.
John 15:18–24 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father.
