I can relate with the thoughts expressed concerning the truth that evangelism should not be conducted from a place of superiority.

When a believer sets out to condemn an unbeliever because of their lifestyle choices, they express a lack of understanding of the truth that what we see on the outside is only a reflection and overflow of what exists on the inside ( Jer. 17:9).

An unbeliever is expected to typically conduct his/herself in a way that is reflective of their depraved mind and unregenerate spirit (Eph. 2: 2-3). If a believer chooses to focus on their works and declares them unfit for the good news of Christ, again such a person denies the transformative power of the Holy Spirit (Phil. 2: 13). For it is the Holy Spirit who convicts man of his wrong doings ( Jn. 16:8), and brings him into repentance, which creates an avenue for such a person to be transformed by the renewal of their mind ( Rom. 12 :2).

So, a believer who chooses to condemn an unbeliever misses an opportunity to present the free gift of salvation to such a person ( Rom. 10 :14), as this is the most potent remedy to their misconduct. The transformative work of the Holy Spirit on their mind is guaranteed to produce fruits of ethical living, powered and sustained by the power of God.
