midniterider Posted January 23, 2019 Share Posted January 23, 2019 Well, I'm planning a several day trip which will include an overnight stay with a fundy relative. I will be in their vehicle and at their mercy so I'm planning ahead in my mind how to kindly counter any questions as to my current religious status. I think it might be kind of fun to have this conversation. I dont necessarily have a problem getting across that I've returned to my heathen ways but it might be fun to kindly put forth questions such as : 1. Does Jesus have a personal relationship with me? If so, why do I need to read the bible. Is his personal relationship exactly like everyone else's personal relationship? And if so, that doesnt seem very personal or unique. Sounds more like boot camp. 2. If Hell is a possibility for non-compliance then how can my love ever be sincere if I'm not really that interested in Christianity? Does faking it get you into Heaven? It would be fun to hit my relative with some questions. Though these ex-c debate ideas aren't anything new, I'd like to find a kind way to present them. This relative may not actually ask me if I'm still a believer or not, but I'm sure I'll be hearing about Jesus while I'm there. I'm interested in the angle of "why" would I want to be a follower of Jesus when I have no interest in it. Because that's my feeling towards Christianity. Anything you want to throw at me, I'll consider presenting. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
