    I do not think teaching them "the truth" is necessarily about talking to them about religion. I would hope that if an atheist was working along next to me would see the truth as being that people that are Christians do not always fit into a box with their behavior. If they asked questions I would be willing to share what my faith means to me.

    I would agree, and think that is a two way street - hopefully Christians working next to atheists would learn that they can go the whole day without eating even one baby!

    I mean, Gloria, RG and I all consider ourselves Christians but I don't want to her what you both consider truths and I know you don't want to hear mine.

    Why can't everyone just work together and leave the personal stuff out of it?
    I'm pretty sure you think whatever you believe is the truth, otherwise you wouldn't believe it. I didn't say anything about forcing anyone to listen to me. Believe it or not there ARE people who are not close minded and are interested in discussing religious matters in order to learn more and do want to listen. I love to discuss the Bible with people and you would be surprised to know that there are a lot of other people who study the Bible a lot too and like those kinds of discussions.

    That's not what you said. Religious discussion and debate are one thing. When someone tells me they are hoping that others "learn the truth" does not seem to me like you are open to discussion and debate but to convert.

    Of course I would like everyone to learn the truth as I know it. It is a wonderful thing. That doesn't mean I stand on a street corner trying to scream it out to people walking by. There is no point discussing something like that with someone who is not open to it.
