I have a fundy relative who was at long last curious as to what I believed. She was already aware that I wasn't a fundy, but she wanted to know the specifics.
"Well, I want to know because after all, you know all about Christianity."
I said, "You'll just be insulted. It's the opposite of your religion."
She said, "Nah, nah. I want to listen and learn."
"Okay, then. I believe that Jesus was a human just like any other who preached and then died. He's not better than anyone else who lived."
She's infuriated. "How could you say that! Jesus is God!"
I told her she would be insulted when I told her what I believed. And guess what, she was insulted.
Has something similar happened to you? I always giggle when I remember this.
