We "change" the world when we are living in the Spirit among the people, not when we force it to be what we want/think it should be.
There are a few posts here that allude to the same thing. I take exception to this argument, based on the following:
*Some people don't learn by example. Some people could care less about example. I wouldn't discourage anyone from doing so, but we live in a fallen world.
*How can anyone here talk about Christians "forcing" (a favorite buzzword) their views down the throats of others? Isn't this what the homosexual lobby is doing? We are merely defending our nation by opposing them, which is our right.
*If we only live by example, we are essentially keeping the Gospel to ourselves, and not sharing it with the world. And this, of course, is contrary to the Great Commission.
I will not retreat solely into example, but turn outwards and defend the Lord whenever I get the chance.
