<b><font color=#0000CC>Danger of Zealous Fervor</font></b>

Yes, the goal is to reach souls;
but at what further cost?
Unacceptable is using fear as mind control
for reaching those considered 'lost'.

When not as an example of victorious living,
the principles of God appear to lose credibility.
If not demonstrating a God that's loving,
then appeal of the Kingdom lacks desirability.

To berate skeptical souls with Hell's threat
will deliberately cause immediate offense.
Salvation is not a game with souls to bet -
Offer encouragement to get off the lukewarm fence.

Our responsibility is to share Salvation's plan,
not forcing people to immediately decide.
We are to be God's vessel to reach Man
and not propagate the Eternal Divide.

    There is a continuous fight between blind faith and reasoning power. But for me, 'God is love. Love is God.' If we know this, then, I think, the whole problem of ours is solved. God loves those who love their neighbours. Pride and prejudice never pays any rich dividend. This is what I have learnt in the 75 years of my life.
