Christians: How do you manage to reach out to others who aren’t Christians?

I’m a Christian myself, and I have a dilemma about this. I don’t know how I’m supposed to relate to others who aren’t Christians, and then to try and witness to them or somehow plant the seeds of Christ in him/her.
EDIT: I’m not someone who tries to force my beliefs on anyone else, nor do I try to pressure them into conforming with my viewpoint. I’m just asking for friendly, sensible ways in which reaching out to non-Christians is possible.

    try talking about non-religious stuff. you dont have to convert them, just be friends.

    People are people, if you forget about religion when communicating then you shouldn’t have any problems.

    However trying to force your beliefs on someone has to be one of the things i find the most infuriating in the world.

    It’s called Brainwashing (Planting the seed of Christ) You’ve been doing it for years. It’s in your religions blood line, comes natural. Just up the Kool-Aid and Blind “Faith”. Oh and use those Sins to your advantage and don’t forget to threaten with Hell.

    I’m having trouble with that too. Until I have all of what I’m gonna do planned out, I just go here to answer questions. It has a small success rate, but it is slowly working, I can tell.

    don’t try to convert people, non-christians don’t want your mumble jumble

    With a thousand lies
    And a good disguise
    Hit ‘em right between the eyes
    Hit ‘em right between the eyes
    When you walk away
    Nothing more to say
    See the lightning in your eyes
    See ‘em running for their lives

    They probably won’t want to listen unless they bring up the topics themselves so just be prepared to present evidence. A great website to get you ready is Christiananswers.net.

    Just chill out and show by example, be a kind and compassionate person and people will seek to know what you are about.

    Just look for friends, and try to be a friend. The end.

    Be friendly. On the street, I’ve asked people randomly if they can recommend a church in the area. Then, we can talk about our faiths. If they are sick or injured, I have asked people if they need a prayer and can write their name down for the church prayer list and sometimes pray there with them, and ask about their faith. If they are smoking or buying liquor I have asked if they need a recovery group, and recommend a Christian church 12-step addiction recovery group and talk about faith. With unsaved friends, you might ask them what their faith is, what they think about God, do they believe in heaven/hell, if they need a prayer, who do they think Jesus Christ was, etc. There is a nice tract to give out called “Steps to Peace with God” at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website:
    http://billygraham.org
    You can invite people to church, and if you see the church has nice fliers about some event you can hand that out. Christian tracts and fliers can also go up on bulletin boards where they let you post them.
    This is what I tell people who have the time to listen:
    This is the basic Christian message and prayer — you need to accept God’s Son, Jesus Christ, into your life to be a born again Christian and follow God’s ways so you can receive God’s guidance in your life and get to heaven after you die. Knowing God can transform your life. When you know God, then pray about your life, God can help you live a better life. As God is love, life is primarily about love and relationships in order to have a rich and full life. Also, you need to know God’s Son, Jesus Christ, in your life as your Lord and Savior as Jesus died on the cross as payment for our sins. Having Him with you will give you God’s blessing and forgiveness, as you live God’s way. Not following God leads to hell, eternal suffering. Instead, there is an important prayer to pray to become a born again Christian. This prayer should be said with faith in God and a sincere heart:
    “Dear God, I know that I am a sinful person and I don’t want to be like this anymore. I know that Jesus Christ died on the cross as payment for our sins, and I want to accept Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and Savior so I can receive God’s forgiveness, guidance, and go to heaven someday. Thank you, dear God, for your mercy and guidance; in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
    This prayer can take you to a new place in your relationship with God and transform your life. After saying this prayer, you should check out a Christian church, like a Baptist or Lutheran one. The church can get you baptized and prayed for, and you can pray for yourself daily. Also, get into their Bible study group so you can learn more about God, Jesus, and God’s will for your life. The Bible is God’s instruction book about how to live a God-honoring life so you can go to heaven after you die. Ways to stay connected to God’s path include loving God and Jesus Christ, obeying God’s ways, daily Bible reading, daily prayer for yourself and others, getting to church, having your church prayer group and/or pastor pray for you, fasting with prayer for a higher level of prayer, getting with other Christians and doing a Bible study, singing hymns to God, taking communion with the church, helping and loving others, expressing your gratitude to God for His help in your life by telling others of your progress and helping them draw closer to God too. God guide your life.

    Sharing your personal testimony of what Jesus Christ did for you is always a good idea.
