This is just one (very tame) example of how many conversations between Christians and non-Christians go--and many between Christians. I share it, not to criticize the person that I interacted with yesterday; because, as I said, I have been guilty of doing the same thing in the past. Rather, I share it so that others might be able to learn from it and avoid making the same mistake. Don't engage in "drive by" apologetics or theology, no matter how enticing it may be. In the age of social media, this often takes intentional effort. But we must not get in the habit of answering questions at the expense of answering people.
*There are bound to be a few Christians who will read this post and say, "This is just pansy, pacifist horse manure! I wouldn't be caught dead apologizing when it is the other side who is really guilty of doing this to us." I am not saying that non-Christians don't do the same thing, but I can only take responsibility for my own actions.
