When I heard this the first time, I totally was not expecting this from Penn. He "gets it" better than many professing evangelicals do. Sad. Great post, though.

This is a real interesting video. Penn obviously was take aback by this "really good man" that he encountered.

I think this video speaks volumes about the obvious lack (in my experience) of "really good men" that non-believers, and those of us who have reached a point where we can no longer believe encounter (and have encountered).

On the other hand, I could rattle off the names and profiles of the many charlatans and Elmer Gantrys I've come across while in church, and during my time away.

I do think it is helpful to catch people where THEY are. Find out what is troubling them and then address that issue. Then you can put a good word in for our Lord.

I an not saying that no one is ever saved by receiving a tract or by listening to a 'canned presentaion' (Way of the master stuff..."have you ever stolen...have you ever lied, etc.), but I believe in getting to know someone and using the law (whatever it is that has got them)to bring them to the point where the gospel can be heard.

Thanks!~
