Want to really convince someone of the gospel? Here is the secret.
The best and most effective apologetic I have ever seen both in scripture and in real life is a life truly living out the faith. I would estimate that genuine faith lived out has brought more people to Christ than all the arguments, theology, creeds, and tracts put together.

To those who say that “playing games” or “entertainment” are pointless in the eyes of God, read this!
