I'm not a fan of In-Your-Face Christianity in any form. True witnessing involves our consistant daily behavior over a long perion of time. Any words (and keep them few) are only validated if they follow our long and consistant behavior of acting with true love, honor, virture, truth, etc. both in our lives and towards others.
Men want so "see" instant results. They want to say a few words that will cause people to want to "accept Jesus" So they preach scary sermons to try to scare people into heaven. Preachers tell about an angry God who will send "unrepentant" sinners to a Hell where they will be tortured forever and ever. "Come to Jesus and escape the flames of hell."

Although my wife is mathmatically challenged she has been homeschooling our two children. My wife has been doing what she could, but she hasn't been holding my son to the line, making him work out all of his problems. Although I've told both of them repeatedly that my son needs to work out the problems completely, Joseph has still been mostly just writing down only the answers, not the answers with the formulas. A couple days ago I told my wife that I would take over working with my son and his math. I have been making him work out all his math problems and label everything correctly.
