People, not arguments (Os Guinness)

"It is difficult to be around people who always have to be right. They are frankly a pain in the neck, and when we behave like that as Christian apologists, we betray our Lord. We not only contradict the 'grace and truth' and the 'grace upon grace' with which Jesus presented the gospel, but we present ourselves as a flat out contradiction of everything we ourselves are saying (Jn 1:14, 16). Jesus said that his followers were to be 'fishers of men,' so it is people, not arguments, that we should be winning."

-Os Guinness, Fool's Talk, p. 169-70.
