I’m a convert to the COC and my family and friends come from a Protestant background.
I try my best to live like Christ and the saints:
I don’t curse, I try to find peace in everything and if there is a problem... I be sure to bring it up to the individual in a peaceful manner, after their emotions have calmed.
However... I’ve been told that I am too much of a push over by doing these things. I tell them that the Bible commands us to follow what it teaches about these matters... but they refuse and say I am “preaching” to then.
I feel like a black sheep.
These are supposed Christians who won’t follow the Bible and call me a push over because I do.
So are Christians supposed to be pushovers? It seems like Christ made it sound that way because our reward is in Heaven.
What would you do if others view you as “Too Christian” and a “pushover”?
