People

I often don't understand the asinine things people do. Is it for attention? Are people really stupid? Are they just not taught?

Something that really bothered me the other day.

I was on the train. This lady gets up and starts blubbering about God.

No one likes these "mobile evangelists" and this lady was just inarticulate. Some people could say she was nervous. I sometimes become inarticulate when I'm on the spot and don't know what to say...but this was a whole 'nother level!

Someone asked her, "How do I get to know Jesus?" She sputtered and said, "Ask your Pastor. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light. He's the Lily of the Valley. The Bright and Mo'ning Star!" Basically, the euphemisms we've been taught since Sunday School which don't mean much if you're going through a situation...yes?

I was sooooo pissed! THAT is why people don't trust Christians...half the time, we don't even know what we're talking about.

I had to get off the train just as she was saying that. I would've answered his question. I felt bad.

Dudes..I just don't get them either. Why say things in the street like.."Thick girl!" "Big girl!" and walk away? Clearly, you're not trying to talk to me...you just want to say something. It irks me.

Maybe because I'm a person of few words...I usually speak when necessary. So, people who just talk bother me...

I'm just venting.

Man I hate that! Don't evangelize if you don't have anything to say. And at the very least one should know how to tell someone to accept Christ! I'm irked by that myself. She said ask your pastor??? Umm clearly he must not have one idiot!
