“It should work both ways”
“We should not force anyone to hear it; if they wish not to hear, it’s their choice & consequence before God to do so just like our preaching has its choice & consequence too”:
The two verses below highlight these principles:
(i) “Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet.
“Truly I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:14 – 15)
(ii) “Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.” – apostle James (James 3:1)
