A tardy response, yet it is prompted now: There is the saying for physicians that they do no harm to their patients, and the same is true for true Christians who are to be in obedience to the Master's (Jesus Christ's) commandment to preach the Gospel to those who have not yet believed and teach the Gospel to those who have. In this is the prayer of the true Christian directed, that those who are recipients of the Truth take it to heart, and in the heart make their own prayer for salvation. To that end, for everyone who does make that prayer known to Almighty God through Jesus Christ makes the heart of this Christian content. Where no attempt to receive Jesus Christ personally and know Him after the witness is made is cause for this Christian to pray for salvation of those who are hesitant still, until there is no further chance for it to happen (meaning the death of the unbeliever). Then it is up to the person and the LORD in eternity to deal in judgment with the unbelief in this mortal realm.

As for debate in this Christian's faith, there is none; only the witness for the greatness of Jesus Christ in any man, woman or child's life, and the eternal life promised for believing in His death, burial and resurrection. Believing in that is the only blessing this Christian can pray for and know it is in the will of Almighty God to do so. Believe in that blessing for yourself (and this goes for anyone who reads this), and He will be faithful and just in Jesus Christ's name to forgive the sins of any who ask. It is the blessing He bestowed upon me decades ago, and it is the blessing available (in His peace) to you now.
