Tigh tlines is an expression of encouragement to a fisherman to ensure that the connection between himself and the fish has no looseness. Otherwise, the fish will spit out the bait immediately before the fisherman knows the fish is on the line.
All evangelists who seek to bring people into the Kingdom need to have a fine balance of being convincing, enthusiastic and encouraging without displaying negative features.
Their witnessing needs to be powerful, emotional and attractive. They are presenting an alternative lifestyle and salvation to people.
