Re: [jeanne53] IGNORING THE BIBLICAL TIME CLOCK
jeanne: Hi

I know there are those...and not just atheists... whose behavior would necessitate the shaking of dust and post haste departure. I despise crude behavior.

That is the kind of reaction I am thinking about, that would elicit dust shaking off of feet. We carry a message of reconciliation between God and mankind, not a criticism of other peoples views or behaviour. If we are unwelcome guests it is our responsibility to withdraw immediately and not give offense.

The shaking off of dust from ones feet is not so much intended to insult as to metaphorically demonstrate that we even shrug off any hard feelings that mightbe clinging to us and are prepared to move on without rancour or personal animosity.

Too much evangelism is carried out with an 'In Your Face' attitude. Probably because the 'evangelists' are themselves feeling embarrassed, so they come across a bit pushy.

.
In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 2 Cor. 5:19. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
