.....I feel bad now. *sad smile*
I had a debate tonight with my sister over the phone about religion. She knows about my new life style and I told her several times I didn't wanna get into it and that I didn't want to make her question her faith, but she kept pushing for it so we ended up debating about it for a while.
.....And I feel bad. I think I made her question her faith a little bit. I've had debates with my Mother about it as well and they both started taking in that same tone of voice when they began losing......
It's hard to describe the tone but it's a tone of being unsure and a little angry, and their whole argument is..."No, God is real...I know he is....".
I felt so bad for her that I brought up a few good points that the Way of the Master has brought up before just to make her feel better about her faith...things she didn't know about, and to let her know I hadn't given up on Jesus.
.....But I really feel bad. I feel like I need to hug my sister now. lol. I feel like a jerk. I don't wanna take away my family's comfort.
When you're an agnostic atheist I know you're gonna get challenged by Christians and they really shouldn't ask for it if they're not prepared and really shouldn't be so cocky.
But still, I think next time, I need to just either refuse or not ask so many hard questions or not make so many harsh statements. Of course, if I do that, the Christians will think they won and will wanna convert me.
So I dunno...but I feel really bad.
