Another pet peeve I have is that often when the argument is clearly not being won by those who try to convince me of faith in Christianity, they resort to simply quoting Bible verses. This goes back to the idea that the Bible can magically change people. I don’t believe it can but can see how if you believe this you’d think differently.
However, I want you to know: I know the Bible. I’ve been soaking in it for years of my life. And it didn’t change me. I don’t need another quote about sin or God, and I certainly don’t need to hear the gospel again. I don’t mean this offensively. It’s just a waste of my time.
So if I tune out or seem disinterested when you start, don’t be offended or think I’m “hardening my heart toward God”. I’ve simply heard it and understand it, but don’t agree and don’t want to spend my time rehashing it.
