Your reply here is among the posts that I mentioned to her that I sometimes cringe to associate with my beliefs, brother. We're taught, "Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ." - 1Pe 3:16
Dr. Paul's example isn't about wearing his faith on his sleeve, but neither is he ashamed to address it when appropriate. Many of my post don't raise faith issues, or quote the Bible, unless I find that it fits to my understanding of question or issue raised. "Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." - Col 4:6
Keeping a good conscience and seasoning with salt have helped me make peace with some fierce opponents. Wendy is tame, compared to some.
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
