How much do you hate someone not to prosthlysize?

I have found this great Canadian radio talk show called The Drew Marshall Show. It is described on the website as Canada's Most Listened To Spiritual Talkback Program.

On the website you can go through and listen to old interviews, and also see different questions posed by listeners, and see his answer to the questions. One question on the website is as follows:


We want to help weird people talk about Jesus without freaking out Joe Public! What advice would you give to a socially unaware person when it comes to talking about their faith?


Here is the answer:

On a video recently posted by entertainer/magician Penn from Penn & Teller, Penn shares about his experience with a fan who gave him a Bible and tried to share his faith with him. Penn, being a staunch atheist, was impressed with the way in which the man did this and that he would do it at all. As a matter of fact, Penn asked the question, "How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize and believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?" But what seemed to really win him over to this "witnessing" attempt was the manner in which the man did it - polite, intelligent, nice, authentic. Why do weird people seem to tell more people about Jesus than normal people? What do you think is the #1 reason why mature and well adjusted Christians don’t share with others about their faith? Watch Penn's Video below.

Yes, that is a very subjective statement. But, I liked this because it made me think in a different way...I always like seeing things that make me think in a different way, a way that hopefully strengthens my faith as a Christian.
