There's an enormous difference between hitting someone over the head and telling people what you believe. If someone believes you're going to hell, shouldn't swaying you from that path be important to them? Obviously banging the Bible over you is not the way to do that, but if someone believes what the Bible says and doesn't say anything to anyone about it because they might offend someone, what does that say about them and what they believe?
It's a sentiment I've seen elsewhere, including this thread, so I wasn't just singling you out.

A negative person might call it cognitive dissonance. However, I think it reflects a certain amount of worldliness and introspection in most people, who realize that a personal experience with religion is just that...personal, not shared.
