    I have always tried to avoid being perceived as a “Bible Thumper,” which is defined as a person who expounds or follows the teachings of the Bible in an aggressively evangelical way. It is a slang term for a person that tries to push their faith on others and is associated with preachers who pound or thump their Bibles when making a point. I don’t think this is the type of fire Jeremiah or John David are talking about, but I do believe we have become overly timid when it comes to proclaiming the Word. To be “fed by the Word and led by the Spirit” is a worthy goal for a Christian. The God we worship is a “consuming fire” and His Word is powerful and should burn in our hearts (Hebrews 12:29). We should not shrink from sharing or standing up for God’s Word, but we should do so humbly with grace and boldness.
