Have you found yourself to be guilty of practicing religious relativism (meaning one church or religion is just as good as another)?
I know once in a while I get lured into that trap because I don’t want to offend people. Also, considering where I went to college and where I live now is pretty liberal it kind of becomes an ingrained response to not want to offend others and take a smug attitude that whatever works for different people works.
However, I do realize that my faith tells me that it is the only one which contains the body and blood of Jesus at every mass and is essential to eternal life (in short). I also know of my duty to proclaim that message to others. But how does one do it without making others mad or shoving my religion in other’s faces.
My actions alone do not make people think that I act that way because I belong to a particular church. It’s tough, it’s tough.June 8, 2004 at 8:51 pm #2955
I have encountered this kind of thing before here too. I can’t give an answer other than prayer. It seems like the times I have encountered others of different religions, I don’t feel lost for an answer or how to act. I think that is because the words and actions have origins other than myself. ” title=”Wink” />
I am not talking about big theology arguements, just little things that I probably would not even notice if I don’t stop to think about them.
