If you wanted to know about God and Jesus would you rather them be like a lamb, kind and nice about it, or would you rather them come at you like a raggeing bull. Would you rather they talk to you about the Bible in a nice manner, or would you rather they keep sticking to what they say over and over, I am a Jehovahs Witness, and I am sure most of you know this by now. Someone doesn't understand why I don't argue or be firm anymore. They think I have added to and taken from Gods word, do you? I would like honest answers on my behavior. Now that I don't argue or be stubborn anymore?

Being kind and polite in one's answers certainly draws more people towards Christ than being "bull-like" about it which often drives people away. When sharing the word of Christ it is best to take on a christ-like stance and manner with discussions. You can certainly be bold and strong in your answers without offending others, it is merely a matter of how you word your answers. There is a huge difference when saying "Jesus is the way" and saying "In my belief it says Jesus is the way". Many times simply adding the predecessor of "My belief says" can avoid many arguments and open the discussion to learning about another's beliefs in a respectful manner.

I really think the intention behind ones words speaks the loudest, no matter what is being said or how it's being said. Someone can totally go nuts-so on me about their faith, but if I can see their intention is to prove something to themselves or they are fearful I will see that and not think of them as arrogant. While on the other hand one could be talking about their religion with a golden tongue, sweet and softly, but if their intention behind that is to "plant seeds" , I can see that too. Just my opinions based on my own experiences. So I'm saying if one always speaks with good intentions, what they are saying will be received as such
