I understand you hate the OSAS doctrine. I understand I might not be able to convince you otherwise. In discussions it helps to be kind. You know how it says a soft answer turns away wrath but grievous words stir up anger?( See Proverbs 15:1) I trust you that you don't hate the OSAS crowd as you say. I know someone who tends to be blunt and speak with sarcasm. It took me some time to learn that this person does care about me.
In the medical world, ER physicians have switched tactics when it comes to defibrillators. In the past, they would start out with low voltage and with each unsuccessful attempt, they'd crank up the power more and more little by little.
Today, research as found that with each unsuccessful attempt to jumpstart the heart, the heart responds by becoming increasingly resistant to each successive attempt to jumpstart -- or in proper medical terminology -- "CONVERT" the heart. In other words, when the goal is cardiac conversion of the heart, doctors are now told to start out hitting them with everything they've got, lest it becomes resistant to the point of no return. I think there's a lesson here when it comes to evangelism.
