How do you go about it?
I used to live in an apartment where we had a Kingdom Hall on the same street and block,
there were two Mormon missionaries living in the down stairs apartment (they would
rotate in and out) we lived up stairs, and one of my two room mates was from Jordan a
devote Muslim. Needless to say we had all night discussions. The strategy I employed
was I didn't worry about it and I still try live by that.
It does not matter if I win or lose a discussion, it only matters I'm faithful to God. It is God
who is doing the real work not me, I cannot put a light in someone's life, I cannot break
the chains they are in. I cannot reveal God to anyone, that is all on God. So I just try to
love them where they are, be a good friend and neighbor and be honest and as real as
possible. If I can talk them into anything, someone else can talk them out of it. The best
thing I can do is show them God by being faithful to God by loving and caring for them
right where they are, sharing the truth as I can without forcing it.
