Just like anything else, people believe they know best. And everyone does it. I know I do. I just want people to try things the way I do them, maybe they'll like them. Maybe they'll be more efficient. I know for a fact most people are like this.
Now me, not being a religious person at all. Not one bit. I definitely believe in God now, did not before. I am not in a specific religion because this is very new to me. But my beliefs help. They definitely help me. No, I will never try to get someone to believe the way I do. But I will definitely let them know what I do. The things that I try. Just to maybe have that person to the same, and see if they receive help the same way I do.
Most people that push other religions down you throat want the best. It may not seem like it at the time. But what they do, and what they believe in, they live by it. All they want is for you to try it. They want you to be on their side. Just to see if it helps you the same way it helps them.
Now, don't get me wrong, there could be people out there that only do it because they think they're better than everyone. But there are so many different kinds of people in this world, that you may never know.
To avoid this, I definitely hold my tongue when religion comes up. Of course, I'm not now. But only because I felt like I could relate, I guess. Whenever there's a group of people talking amongst each other, there's no saying what could come up. But if it's something about God, or something about what they believe in, everyone notices how quiet I get. Because like I said, it's definitely new to me. I don't want to have an input about something I definitely have no knowledge on.
Hopefully this helps, in some sort of way...
