Watch this SNL commercial and tell me it doesn’t seem like someone trying to evangelize… Just remember, it’s all about the attitude.

Evangelism Misnomer #221

When all else fails, just be an ass. For bonus points shoot for judgmental as well. 

Sorry folks, I know this has been one of those sacred cows of evangelism. It’s called riding that high horse. Only we never noticed it was us being the jackass.

When it comes to sharing who Christ is to others, just remember these two simple facts:

1) Nobody will listen to you unless they know you like them.

2) Nobody will listen to God unless they know God loves them.
