Fear and Laziness

I read this quote this week, and I have to confess, it convicted me.

"How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them?" - Penn Jillette (of the famed Penn and Teller, also a self-proclaimed atheist), after receiving a Bible from one of his show's attendees)

Don't you think this is a profound statement? I don't hate anyone that much. I can't say that I really hate anybody. So why am I not sharing what Christ means to me with everyone I know? This is my personal challenge, to grow and mature in my relationship with Christ and to be less concerned with what others may think of me.

Hearing Penn Jillette say this about everlasting life IS profound. I adore his social and political commentary. Thank you for sharing this quote.

Cheers!
