Atheist Penn Jillette of the comedy team Penn & Teller believes in evangelism more than do many Christians. A Christian approached him after one of his Las Vegas shows, and Penn appreciated the man’s effort. In this short YouTube video, Penn says that he “knows” there is no God, but that it’s hateful to NOT evangelize people if you truly believe in Heaven and Hell. He also says that atheists ought not be so defensive when people sincerely share the Christian message.
If only more Christians thought more like this atheist!
By the way, I saw Penn & Teller’s show back in 2003. It’s certainly worth seeing.
