fishers of men or just fishy

I work at a hotel front desk.

Sometimes guests will come to the desk to chat. Some of them do it as a pretext, because they actually want to bring up the god topic. ugh

I want to be civil and polite, but I don't want to just agree with them either. Lately, I've taken the strategy of telling them I'm a Christian, have a good church, etc. Is that a cop out? I just want to get them off my back.

Tonight a guy just starts telling me about the confrontation he had with his 21 year old nephew who he said was "going off the path, but was trying to justify it biblically." Oh gee, I had to listen to all his brilliant arguments, finalizing with "How do you think the moon got there?" Apparently there is some debate about scientists as to how this happened, and since we don't completely understand it yet, it must mean "God did it." He was pretty happy with himself.

I am starting to get real fed up with dogmatic religious people. ugh


  1. I don't like confrontation and especially don't want to get into something like that with a stranger, so when I'm approached by do-gooders sharing the gospel, I nod and let them know I'm a believer - we all smile and they move on to another target. I am sure many would think this is a cop out, but it's what works for me.

  2. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post
    to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Many thanks
