The Gospel, The Spiritual Gift of Hospitality, and Crime

Today’s BreakPoint commentary by Prison Fellowship Mark Early tells a story that speaks clearly to the best answer to our crime problem. Here’s the conclusion:

And as we go about doing what God commanded—visiting those in prison and sharing the good news—it won’t just make a difference in private attitudes, but in public safety. So that the next time [criminals and victims] meet, it can be across the pew instead of across the barrel of a pistol.

It sounds trite, but we must share the gospel, or they may kill us.

"...we must share the gospel, or they may kill us."

Well, that's one reason.

I highlight that one in my recent discussion of Islam, along with the fact that with Islam we can also lose our souls.
