Yes, I get their permission to record, and half the time, they actually see their own faces on the screen. No one goes home angry or upset. In all of my videos and interactions, I am polite and respectful. I keep an open mind. Many times they thank me for the conversation. A few bloggers have commented that I don't preach or teach enough. I admit that's true, but if I came off all preachy in the beginning, I know they wouldn't listen. So I listen instead. I wait for them to ask questions. Sometimes they do, and I share the gospel. Sometimes they don't, and they leave the car without the gospel, and some people comment that I've failed. That's possibly true.
But one thing that's not true is that I'm forcing a religious conversation or rudely invading their personal space. I have high ratings in Lyft and Uber, and I only drive 5 hours per week. The Mormons I had a debate with actually tipped me $8. because even that was a friendly debate.
and that really pisses people off. It pisses off Satan. It pisses off the many atheists who watch my videos (I was even featured on an atheist website) (and why do they watch my videos?!!) I don't think they would mind if they saw me get pummeled into fear by an atheist. I don't think they would mind if they actually saw a video of a heated argument and the passenger flicks me off. They would laugh and say "that's what you get!"
But instead, they see that my reasons are logical, my points are sensible, and I respect people who disagree, not like the caricatures of zealous Christians they see in the media. People are responding and turning to Christ...and it pisses people off. So they report to Uber, but Uber doesn't care if you're not the passenger. And passengers love it when they see me rolling up. There's only like 5 of us with really fancy cars doing Uber.
One of these days, a passenger might get angry. The gospel has a way of offending people in just the right way. And when he reports, I'll have the video to prove that I didn't cross any lines.
If and when they kick me out, don't worry. I'll show people a hundred other ways to evangelize. and that's a fact.
