On Missionary Work

Let’s get one thing straight.  I don’t really care if you want to come to my church or not, ok?  I mean, I like my church and it makes me happy.  But I don’t really care if you’re not interested.  I don’t want to sound mean or unfriendly.  On the contrary, I’d like to be your friend regardless of what you think of my church.  I still like to invite people to come to my church.  In fact, consider this post an official invitation from yours truly to check out my church.

I don’t care if you think I’m Christian, & I don’t care if you think I’m going to HELL.
