At the dentist office.

Took my kids in for a teeth cleaning. She asked if I had been saved. I told her "no" and that my beliefs are different from hers. She said they weren't. I told her politely I wasn't interested and I respect her beliefs, but to please respect mine as well.

She said "ok, but what about your kids?"

We got called in shortly after.

Did you throw her a bone as a consolation prize?

As a Christian (non-saved type), sometimes people try to convert me to... Christianity! I tell them that I am already a Christian, and attend church once a week and they still persist.


They really shouldn't, because then I sin and get pissed off.


Edited to add: Post 556, cool.

I went to the Doctor today.

I reminded him to vote Republican in Novemebr.

He looked at me and said: "But of course!"

If she persisted AFTER politely being told that you're not interested - THAT would seriously cause me to lose my cool!

You should have said I am Jewish, part of god's chosen people. Thanks for offering but I am OK.

And most real Chirstians would have said OK. Remember Christians are supposed to try to reach the unsaved, we are commanded to by god. But we know god has a special plan for Jews.

"Have you found Jesus? " Shit, NO, goldarn it, is he lost again?" or variations on that theme, depending on the questioner and the location.. "MMM, no, did you try down at the river he and his cousin John were playing down there last I heard."

"what is it about my appearance that you don't like and suddenly assume I must be a Sinner, Do I look like a prevert? Don't have any Satanic tattoos, well none that you can see unless you really want do. You wanna see it? My hair is combed, my clothes are nice. Why do you assume I need to be saved?"

"No I went to Confession and Mass last night, I'm good for another week at this rate. Although everytime I think of loose women I loose a little time, Darn down to good for 3 days no. Look whut you done to me?"

Whoa, back up the bus there sparky. You're commanded by God to ask people invasive questions about their personal beliefs?

Everytime I go to the Chiropractor a Korean lady askes me if I know Jesus, which I do, I just smile and say, "I certainly do." every time.

You should count it against her if she doesn't try to share her faith with you. Remember, from her point of view the unsaved will be separated from God for eternity, and keeping silent would be like letting a blindfolded stranger walk off the edge of a cliff.

I absolutely love the people screaming "TURN OR BURN!" at others from street corners. Way to spread the Word.

Beware of dentists who appear eager to use general anesthetics.

They're usually the ones with the "Convert-O-Matic" machines in the back room.
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 3:48:17 PM EST
When asked if I have been saved, I usually ask "From what?" They get a huge look about them when I say that.


THen I go on to say "From what? A swarm of bees? The Religious Right? A bear? The Yellow Hordes? A burning building? Cancer? The Benifits of Long Distance Savings? Be specific!"

As a Christian, I'll apologize on behalf of my misguided sister.....

Some people really take it too far.....

I tell them, yes Im saved and I know that for sure. It justs shuts them right up. When I get people asking me to join the NRA, subscribe to a newspaper, etc. I always tell them I already get whatever they are selling. They always say, OK and hang right up.

No, they found him in the temple. Remember?



Hey, Tac:

Repent and be saved.
(if you have already repented, please disregard this notice)
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 6:36:27 PM EST
"Saved? Why, no, but he hasn't thrown me away yet."


That saved stuff is something I just don't get. Get "saved" and then you go out and be a reprobate and still get into Heaven? No, you still have to seek forgiveness for your sins.

But that's a different discussion.
