Last night I asked Faith (my wife) what her current thoughts are regarding her faith stance. She confessed that she didn't really know, but generally still considers herself a Christian even though she thinks Muslims and Jews and others will get into heaven apart from Jesus. I found this very interesting, as you might guess. I asked her how she could still call herself a christian while denying the exclusivity of Jesus as the way to heaven. She didn't know. After a few more equally puzzling answers to my questions, I asked her if she thought it would help our marriage if we were closer to being on the same page regarding some basic elements of reality. She agreed it would. I further questioned whether the benefit our marriage would receive from such a stance is motivation enough for her to consider the claims of humanism. She was very offended. Saying that I was pressuring her to give up her faith. I tried to repeat over and over again how I meant nothing but respect toward her when asking her for defenses for her faith. I never asked her to change her views just for me, but I did suggest that our marriage might be worth at least considering another point of view. I don't want her to claim views as her own just to please me. Did I step over the line? I really don't know what the next step would be in this conversation. How do you think you would approach such a hot button?
