Being Polite

In a world that becomes more anti-Christian every day, you’re sure to eventually run into some people who tell you that your beliefs are ridiculous.

Although I probably haven’t, I feel like I’ve heard it all.

“What, you don’t want women to have the right to choose what happens to their bodies? You’re so sexist.”

“You can’t say homosexuality is wrong! After all, it’s love, isn’t it?”

“Of course a man can pretend he’s a woman or vice-versa! After all, what they were naturally created to be doesn’t matter so much as what they feel like being.”

“I can’t believe you support {insert candidate here} … {he/she} believes in {insert belief here}.”

“Believing some sky-god created the universe is so stupid.”

“Then your God is racist/sexist/homophobic!”

And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The world honestly wants to crush Christianity. I’ve seen it time and time again. They pretend they want to support all beliefs … but really they just want to support all the beliefs that don’t contradict their beliefs.

But that’s really not important.

What’s important is your response.

How do you react to the world’s heckling? Do you fly into a rage? Do you engage in venomous debates?

Well, you shouldn’t.

When someone challenges you about your faith …

Be polite.

As Christians, it is our duty to take the higher road.

As Christians, it is our duty to be kind and loving to everyone.

As Christians, it is our duty to represent Christ in a godly fashion.

Be the kind of person who makes other people want to be Christians. Stand firm in your beliefs … but don’t be caustic if they are challenged. Turn the other cheek.
