Had a weird weekend. Do you ever have one of those moments where you get caught on the hop in a conversation? I had someone talk to me about my faith which I wasn't really prepared for. Just sitting chilling with some friends and then I get put on the spot by an evangelistic atheist who was trying to convert me to adopt his humanistic world view!!!
It always seems ok for people to have a pop at the christians, in all honesty I felt like telling him to shut up and leave me alone. Especially when I wasn't even preaching at him.
You start to get asked your views, on this and that! but no one else around the table gets asked!!!! I know faith sometimes provokes a response but it is worse when the other person is the aggressor!!!
It made me think, here I am sitting around a table and some guy I have never met before is telling me to change a belief system that I have spent the last 20 years incorporating into my life, it wasn't going to happen.
Christians are not the only evangelists, there are all sorts of people out there trying to get us to believe and adopt their philosophy!!!
