Common ground with non-Christians
John Fischer writes about, “Why I’m (practially) not a Christian” below. I am beginning to remember why I liked some of his early books like Real Christians (don’t) Dance. Read the whole post here and subscribe to his daily post at www.fischtank.com
One of the things you will find out if you start to listen to non-Christians is why they don’t like Christianity. My guess is, when you hear their reasons, you may actually agree with some of them, because the Christianity they are against is quite often not true Christianity anyway. So right there you can have something in common. You can both not like Christianity (the wrong one, of course). I know that seems odd, but these are strange days anyway.
How ironic is it, that the thing we would have in common with non-Christians is the fact that neither of us like Christianity? Believe it or not, you can turn this “anti-Christian” commonality into an opportunity to talk about none other than Jesus.
