Depends on the person and why. I usually only get upset when people question it that i hold dear and know better. Thats just hurtful and depending on the situation i get mad.
I once wanted to correct a sister in Christ when she was telling it all over that she was fasting..which we shouldnt
She then talked behind my back and the youth leader attacked my faith... hard...so i got pretty mad..it took me over a week to cool off.
But like here when people say im not christian and things like that i dont care. They dont see my fruit.

no

what I don't like, is when someone who wants to get point, goes 'and you call yourself a Christian' for some normal human response

that used to get me ticked...now, I would say...no, the Bible says I am. doesn't mean I'm perfect...or something similar

I don't. my experience and observations have taught me that only those who don't know why they believe as they do get upset.

Nope.. That is when i get the opportunity to share my Faith and the good news of the Gospel with them..

Yeah sometimes you will get people with a mocking attitude and others will come at you with hate but i can take that 1000 times for the opportunity to have that one genuine seeker who will listen to the answer and genuinely consider it..

Hi Marie, I guess it all depends. On the one hand, it could end up being a wonderful opportunity to witness/evangelize/preach, to share what I know about God and the Christian faith, to share why I finally became a Christian (and how they can become one too :)), and to correct any misunderstandings as well, etc. We are commanded to do so, yes .. Matthew 5:16; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 3:15.

On the other hand, if the person(s) doing the questioning are not honest, but abusive, such that they seek to demean or sully God, His word, or even us, His witnesses, then I believe the Bible gives us clear guidance about how we should choose to handle that scenario as well .. Matthew 7:6.

Yes and no. If they're willing to have an actual conversation I would talk about it. If they're just calling me an idiot or something then I would be annoyed. It's also hard if they're very emotional about something that's preventing the belief. I just leave it up to God and move on.

I use to have a roommate who would laugh at me every time I mentioned something religious and would call me names. Yea...she now believes. So I try to look at it as a lack of understanding at that moment. Not going to say I love being called an idiot though. :p

I love it! I pray for God to give me opportunities to witness all of the time. Even if the person is asking in a derogatory manner, seeds are getting planted. Even if the asker is a hard soil type, perhaps someone else listening in is of the fertile soil type.
