Is it worth the time to change someone’s mind? Has anyone ever thanked you for showing him or her his or her mistake? “Thank you Mr. Jones for showing me my error” No, they will fight to their last breath to defend themselves even if they know they have wronged. Why even spend your precious time to argue with people? Their minds have already been determined.
It is the same with religion. We cannot change how others think, especially when it comes to religion. Reasoning and logic go out the window. Then how do we bring people closer to God? In the Tip of the Writing Brush, it is said that we cannot bring people into our faith by ourselves. It is God who prepares them, and brings them to us when they are ready. We must spread the truth, but we must be patient. We must not argue with others when they are not ready. We must have faith in God.
