From this we see:
- we are all born into sin and belong to Satan's dominion, until we decide to become believers and belong to God (Acts 26:18)
Personal experience: I know most people would be very offended if they were out-of-the-blue accused of worshiping Satan or being on Satan's side because they are not a believer. I have seen some Christians take this bully-approach when trying to "witness". It does not go over well.
I've even been attacked by a group of Christians in public. While I was riding the subway, suddenly a bunch of them jumped onto the train and started pointing straight into people's faces while yelling, "YOU ARE A SINNER AND YOU'RE GOING TO HELL!!!"
When it was my turn to be accused, I said, "I'm actually a Christian and I've been forgiven, so I am going to heaven." To which they quickly responded by yelling out again, "YOU ARE A SINNER AND YOU'RE GOING TO HELL!!!" Then they dashed away.
Wow. So NOT the way to witness. And even if it is true, we never see Jesus forcing His word on anyone. And never did he use the motive of fear and anger. In fact, even with Judas Iscariot being one of His disciples, Jesus remained very loving and patient while teaching them a little bit at a time.
Today's takeaway: the strongest testimony we have is our behavior. Like being a parent, it is very ineffective to just tell a child, "Do as I say and not as I do!"
