We are Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, but we are to share the gospel message in a secular world. Even the people the apostle Paul preached to had some semblance of religion, though in most cases pagan. Now, today, in many circumstances if you mention God in any form except as part of a curse, at best you are looked upon as a rather quaint person who still believes in mythology. I encountered this attitude in grad school and I was studying religion! Not all those studying religion are believers I learned. How do we approach people with the gospel then? I believe it must be through sharing God’s love with them. We have to be the most honest, giving and forgiving, loving person they know. And, so we aren’t caught up in this world ourselves, staying close to God through Bible study, meditation and prayer is vital.
