Recently, a well known Christian media consultant wrote an article entitled "The Sweet Spot of Sharing the Christian Message."
Please understand that I am not trying to "nit-pick" his article. It's just that there are glaring statements in this article that keep tugging at me. If you are a bible teacher, you can relate to this.
In his article, he begins with how Christians are criticized for how we share the "Christian message with the outside culture". He writes, "Some are criticized for making it too easy - "On the other side those who preach a more serious message."
Then, he says this, "no matter how great your message, if no one’s listening, you’ve failed." Now, this sounds good however, there is a flaw in this statement. This is one area of his article where I respectfully disagree. Someone is always listening. A planted seed sometimes takes a while to germinate.
