Every good evangelist needs to carry an imaginary abort button. The abort button should only be used in case of emergencies and when it is quite evident that you are speaking with the hardest of hardened hearts. A servant of the Lord is not quarrelsome, and will live to witness another day if he follows the leading of the Spirit. How do you know when to push the button? When your friend asks the waitress if she knows how to cure the problem of sin, and she responds, "Executions." Place you finger on the button and just wait. When she tells you that her ex-husband is a former youth pastor, get ready. When you tell her that God has appointed a day when he will judge the world in righteousness, and she responds, "Religions are the cause of all the suffering in this world."Get set. When she waits for your lips to stop moving so that she can voice her opinion about you, push. I pushed the abort button today. It's very hard to do, but sometimes necessary.
