Being overall spiritual in the world - Good and bad.

Really not helpful to God sometimes heres why;

I remember Paul and how he said he would become all things to all people so he may reach them.
I remember him saying he would become like a Jew to reach a Jew and so on.

Because these people can not see God. So why do we act as if they can??
Do we want to save them or push them further away?
Im really not implying anything other than good discernment in the world.
Isn't wearing a cross enough of a statement that you are of God and work for Him alone? shouldn't we then be demonstrating the love of God so they will think?:smiley180:

This is weird, because I am writing this here, then I am about to write something in the evangelism forum that says be more spiritual, lol.
Heres some scripture to think about.
1 Cor 2:11-16 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.[c] 14The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment:
16"For who has known the mind of the Lord
that he may instruct him?"[d] But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Cor 9:19-23 Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law. 22To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 23I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

God bless and once again I am not saying to stop giving credit for God for what He is worthy for, just to discern your surrounding and act in a way thats of BEST benefit to God.
Sometimes its best not to say certain things to certain people, everyone of the unsaved needs slightly different things to find God.
Make the statement you are a Christian yes, for sure 100% - But act in a way thats of benefit to the unsaved so they may be drawn closer.
