Every now and then somebody will ask me about Catholic beliefs. I’ve noticed it’s easier talking to Atheists than Protestants because Atheists seem more open whereas Protestants seem more steadfast. This post isn’t really about evangelization per-se, but rather apologetics so I’m not sure where I should post this.
I was talking with one of my bosses today (he’s an Atheist) who is always fun to talk to. We were discussing some science stuff when the tide drifted to religion. I remember telling him somewhere along the lines that Catholics don’t take the Bible literally, especially Genesis. I also ran into some blanks along the way. Some other questions that were difficult to answer were those along the lines of “the earliest forms of the religion seem the most logical (i.e. Judaism, etc.)”
I know we are to educate ourselves, but I have a poor memory and I can’t really recall stuff that well on the spot without having to study stuff, which I must admit is kind of boring.
What should I do in the future? I suppose trying to steer the conversation to another topic is an option.
