And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction... Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Matthew 10:1, 34-39 (ESV)
Basically, it doesn't matter how you approach Christianity - people are going to hate it and be offended by it no matter how sweetly you say His Name. So just say it. Just pray, just worship and don't look to the secular (G-dless) community for approval. Hey, don't even look to your fellow believers for approval - look to G-d, because He's the only one who is equipped to properly judge your heart. There is no pastor, rabbi, or teacher who can take the Mercy Seat as his own, so believe that the L-rd is True in all that is written, and follow Him.
JESUS WASN'T JUST A GOOD MAN... He IS G-d.
So many people who are on the fence about faith claim "Jesus was a good man." The truth is, Jesus was either G-d, or furniture chewing crazy. There is no middle ground on this. You either believe Him or you don't. When you attempt to take away His Divinity to make a more comfortable presentation, you're really just displaying your own insecurities and doubt about your own faith. The secular community ALWAYS jumps on this, because even they aren't blind to rot. JUST BE FEARLESS in your presentation, be BOLD, be COURAGEOUS, be a vessel for contaminating impurity by refining the waters of the unrighteous, that ALL may partake in His Sovereign Goodness.
