Imitating Christ No one wants to sound silly or become something like a religious nut. If you choose to be a Christian, you will live, speak, and act as Christ does—but in your own way. You are who you are. You are special as you are. At the same time you are growing into a better, happier, and more peaceful you. — fromCatholic and Confident (from the minute meditations email) ******* I think this has, and is, my biggest fear about being Christian: coming across legit. Before I became Catholic, I guess I was Christian, but I wasn't a very good one. I especially hated when people tried to convert me. I believed in God. Wasn't that enough? It's uncomfortable when people try to talk religion to you, when it is not your religion. I am getting over that though. I have recently really enjoyed speaking with others about their religion. It makes me realize that people that get uncomfortable speaking about theology, are the ones who don't know their own theology. It always goes back to being self conscious, to not knowing who you are and then mirroring that negativity onto others. Now that I feel more confidant in my faith and WHY I believe what I believe, I am more at peace talking about theology. I know my purpose, I feel like I studied it and in turn, earned it.
