Hi Sangha, this may sound like an odd question, but you are used to that from me. But let's say you deal with a person who calls himself a Christian, but doesn't act like it at all. In fact, they can be downright unkind. They have no interest in Buddhism, may even look down on it. But they do revere Christ (at least they say so). Should you quote snippets of the Bible or Christian teachings to them (especially the parts that seem to overlap with Buddhism) in an attempt to prod them into acting a little more kindly? Or is that a bad idea?
Since they won't listen to Dharma, the only alternative would seem to be to let them continue on their path of unkindness, and to let karma take effect (which as we know can result in a long painful grind).
