As I said, a friend of mine asked this and I thought it was interesting. This is NOT intended to be mean spirited or bashing, it's a purely academic question asking for opinions from Christians. This question arose from various conversations with people of diverse faiths and we were all curious about it, so I decided to post it here in hopes of getting some mature responses. Thanks ladies.
"As a Christian, if someone were to tell you that you were going to go to hell because you are worshiping a false God, idolizing Jesus of Nazareth as the son of God and that to save your soul, you must renounce this false teaching and repent of your wicked beliefs, you would think they were crazy/devil possessed, right? This is how it sounds to people with other beliefs when they are told that Jesus is the only way. So, how do you evangelize to people of other faiths and expect to be taken seriously?"

I don't evangelize. The way I figure it, if someone is interested in the Christian faith, they have so many different books and programs and churches with way more qualified teachers than me to learn from. My husband's family (I have been married almost 25 years) doesn't know I'm a Christian. My family does because they are all Christians. My hubby isn't one and other than explaining my faith to him way back, I don't say anything to proselytize him. There are obnoxious people in all religions.
