To put this in the most accurate context, I’d like to remind readers that I’m only sixteen.
Anways, my family had invited a neighbor for a visit tonight. He’s a very close family friend so I was quite happy to hear he’d be visiting. The visit, however, quickly took a bad turn as he wanted to talk to me specifically about Catholicism and Christianity in general. He’d brought some flash cards and decided to teach me what he believed to be the “truth.” The “truth,” evidently was some sort of New Age teaching with the blasphemy factor up 200%. He tried to tell me typical anti-Catholic teachings, but he also tried to tell me that each person can become equivalent to the Father and that Lucifer was actually female and originally the Father’s wife… among other things.
The problem wasn’t that I couldn’t prove to him he was wrong. The problem was that I just nodded my head and said nothing. I was just afraid to say anything and I’m not sure why. Midway through his lecture, I just wanted to cry because I felt like a traitor against the Lord for not saying anything. I tried to throw small hints toward my parents in the room to bail me out of the situation, in a sense, but it was to no avail. Ultimately, I just waited till he was finished before I retreated to my room.
My question is as the title asks, but I also wanted to know how I should have handles the situation.
