Respect

So I have been reading through the book of Leviticus lately and the one thing that really struck me is the amount of respect that the Jewish people were required to show people who weren't of their own faith.  It got me thinking.  Are we doing that today?  I worked with a pastor that routinely listed groups of people and how they were destined for hell.  Oddly enough he is one of the things that kept me from the the Church until I was 33.  We are doing a disservice by crusading and forcing our beliefs upon others.  If we are good examples of Christians, doing good things and living healthy lives, then people will come to us and their faith will be much stronger.  Just some food for thought.
