Why I Witness

I have often thought about the primary reason Christians want to share their faith. I suppose that different people think of different reasons. I could list a few that I have heard:

  • Christians are holier than thou and just want to lord it over you.
  • They like to brag about their "goodness"
  • Just want everyone to agree with them because they have to feel superior

none of these really make sense, but after a little thought I was able to nail down why I feel the need to witness.

  1. The Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20)
  2. Love for my fellow man

# 1 seems to be self explanitory, so let me devote the rest of this post to # 2.

  • Love for my fellow man
    I feel an overwhelming love for other people. I sincerely believe that if you don't have a personnal relationship with Jesus Christ, you will spend eternity in hell. Regardless of whether I am wrong or right, I believe that to be true and if I believe that to be true, and I don't try to share Christ with others then I am condemning them to Hell by not doing anything at all. No one who truly loves someone else, would do that to anyone.

    Does that make sense?
