Two weeks after you started working at a new place, a secular place, a copy of "The Beginners Study Guide for the Bible," showed up on your desk one morning. What would your reaction be?
Man. I was somewhat offended. The more I thought about it, the angrier I got. I knew right away which of the 20 or so people I’d met over the last couple of weeks had done it. This person had never spoken to me about religion, we’d spoken very little about anything, really, but I know it was her. Maybe it was her condescending, self-righteous attitude that she brings to the work place that clued me in.
My first thought was “What makes her think I don’t already know this stuff? Why is she assuming I don’t know the Bible, I don’t ‘know’ Jesus and I’m not ‘saved’?” I am all of those things that she arrogantly assumes I’m not (don’t start people.)
“What makes her think she has to teach me something without even getting to know me at ALL??!!” It just pissed me off!
