I have been thinking about that question a lot lately. But not in a theoretical way. I am really considering the point of my Christianity to the people around me. Specifically, to people around me that are not Christians. And even more specific, to those that I care about and/or care about me. This really stems from a lot that I have been reading lately as well as conversations I have been having. And this question then opens up a whole host of others:
- If you knew me before I became a Christian, do you see any positive differences in my life?
- How about in our relationship/friendship? Are you treated better now than then?
- If I quit Christianity tomorrow, would it change how you see me? For good or bad?
- Do you avoid certain things/areas of life with me because of my Christianity?
So does it? Does my Christianity even matter to you?
