In Reference to: 16 August 1992 - BEING A CHRISTIAN CAN MAKE A PERSON FEEL LONELY IN THIS WORLD
This is what I mean. I certainly did not intend what I said to be received the way it was.
Of course we cannot accept sin. But you need to remember that they [meat eaters] truly don't understand that what they are doing is wrong. If you try to beat them over the head with your message, they're just going to think you're a kook and they'll run as fast as they can in the other direction.
This is what I was trying to say when I mentioned we need to walk with others at a speed they are ready for. I have assisted many meat eaters in changing their views. With some, you need to reach them through health-related concerns. Once there, compassionate reasons begin to creep in. It's a natural progression. Once a person has a true interest in changing their lifestyle, for whatever reason, they begin to do more research. As they research, they learn about the cruelty.
It doesn't matter how you get them there, just work on getting them there. Just like in golf, the score card doesn't show all of the miss-hits that got you good results -- it just shows the score!
Trust the process. Don't force change in a way that you see fit. Assist change in a way that works for the recipient -- without compromising your beliefs, of course.
