In Reference to: 19 May 1991 - THE SPIRIT OF LIFE

Dear Alex:

Thank you for your comments, and interesting questions.

We're not sure that we can quantify our time allocations in the way that you pose your question. Jesus tells us to be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect, and yet He also ministered and witnessed to sinners. It probably has more to do with our spiritual state of being than anything else. If we absolutely know that we are being loving and compassionate in everything we are doing, and that it's in the will of God, then we don't have to worry about talking to being a witness to those who aren't, just as Jesus did.

The other side of the issue has to do with the nature of our relationships. With family members it is usually best to be a silent loving witness, unless and until they begin to ask questions about our lifestyle. With non-family relationships, we are probable best to leave those who are against everything we stand for remain as acquaintances, but not as close friends. Our close friends should be of a like mind with us.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
