Stop speaking about Jesus?

At the end of October it was reported that the Church of England is to tell Anglicans that speaking about Jesus to others is more likely to do harm than good.

This is based on research originally commissioned by the Church of England, the Evangelical Alliance and others. In a survey non-believers were asked if Christians had ever spoken to them about their faith. Of those who replied positively only 19% said it made them want to know more, compared with 59% who said the opposite. Although 23% said such witness had made them feel more positive towards Christ, 30% said it left them feeling more negative. Sadly, 40% of those surveyed did not think that Jesus was a real person who actually lived.
