For the past few months, a question has recurred to me: Do I care if other people become Christians? I used to be encouraged to pray for people to become Christians. I still am sometimes when I go to church, but I have become rather hardened to that message, to tell you the truth.
Why have I prayed for people to become Christians? Perhaps it was so that they would arrive at a state of inner peace, or become better (more loving) people, or avoid hell. The thing is, a self-absorbed, narcissistic, inconsiderate, self-righteous atheist can easily become a self-absorbed, narcissistic, inconsiderate, self-righteous Christian, only this time with religious delusions of grandeur or stamps of approval on his or her obnoxious behavior. Why should I care if such an atheist becomes a Christian?
I think that I should care because that can at least bring the person some sense of inner-peace, a loving God to lean on.
