Beware whenever someone asks you a ‘yes or no’ question in religion.
When you feel you are being interrogated, it often means the person is less interested in understanding than in power. The only gift you can give someone at that time is to gently point out their presumption of superiority. ‘I am interested in a conversation with you, but this feels like you are asking asking me to justify myself to you.’
The role of inquisitor is actually a kind of mental quicksand the person is trapped in. The unfortunate inquirer does not often even realize that by asking the questions he or she is also defining terms and therefore winning the ‘debate’ by default.
Our task, if possible, is to turn the debate into a conversation.
