Making Scripture Real/Relevant

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18  New King James Version (NKJV)

How often have you heard a Christ follower try and "prove" a point to a person unfamiliar with the Bible, by citing it?  Lots of people do it and don't realize they are.  I know that I have done so on occasion, , but honestly don't have a strong enough command of scripture to do so frequently.

So the next time a person asks  about something in the world, I'll try and do a better job of explaining my viewpoint in the context of Scripture, but not by rote recitation of it.  After all, the showing of a scriptural perspective to be true, is certainly more effective than just assuming others will accept that it is.

Don't quote scripture to non-Christians and expect them to give it credence.
