As a Christian, there will be many challenges to your Faith... People will purposely have certain conversations around you just to get your input, which in most cases lead to Debates ..... People will ask you questions concerning your Faith, just so they can voice their opinions AGAINST your Faith ..... When faced with insincere challenges to your Faith such as these, SILENCE may often be the best response.
In the hostile situation of Jesus' exchange with Caiaphas (Matthew 26:57-64), Jesus chose silence at first (verse 63). He understood that Caiaphas wasn't interested in the Truth (verse 59) ..... We have to use this same discernment today! ... Sure, we'd love to clear up the misunderstandings a person may have about GOD, but if their PRIDE has hardened their heart, they're not gonna receive what you have to say anyway ..... So in situations such as these, HOLD YOUR PEACE (unless led by the Spirit to do otherwise).
And don't forget to PRAY for them ... We want to see everyone make it to Heaven, amen?? ................... God bless!
