    I thought the article from Galli was rather alarming. It goes downhill from the very first sentence.

    “When Christians share their faith with others—especially those of other faiths—our conversation sometimes begins with an unfortunate assumption: that we Christians have absorbed the message of Jesus and that non-Christians have not.”

    He unfortunately lumps non-Christians and Christians into the same categories again and again, failing to note the distinction between the two given throughout the New Testament. I’d recommend reading it with Berean eyes.

    Peace in JC,

    Scott,

    I think his main point is a gospel one: we are all sinners in need of grace, and even once we’ve accepted the truth, we still need grace.

    He writes:

    We are tempted at this point to wonder, “But haven’t we Christians accepted that invitation, and non-Christians have not? Doesn’t that make a difference? Aren’t we called to invite non-Christians to follow Christ?”

    But of course!

    It could be that I’ve misunderstood the point of his post, but I think he’s trying to insert our evangelistic efforts with a good dose of gospel humility that shatters self-righteousness.
