LOL That’s a good one, Randy!
I still go to church, and people know I believe something weird. I post stuff fairly often on Facebook for all to see. People sometimes argue against me, but rarely stick with the conversation for long. It seems like most people really aren’t all that interested in theology, or are content to believe that it’s all been figured out, long ago, and they’re satisfied that it should be so. Until people hunger and thirst for something, it’s rarely any use to offer it to them.
I don’t push my beliefs on people, don’t tell people the pastors are wrong (I say, “That’s the common view, but I understand that a little differently …”), don’t often talk about UR at church or at church events – not unless it somehow comes up in conversation, and then I’m very casual and brief about it. If I was different, I might very well find myself “in trouble.” LOL There have been many stories from people here of having been excommunicated, or asked to leave, or just made to feel unwelcome.
Personally, I don’t think our doctrines are as important as the day to day living out of following Jesus. It seems to me that people would follow him better if they understood UR, but maybe not everyone is ready for that – God knows.
