What's the best way to address a Christian asking you if you have Jesus while you're at work?
So, what's the right answer? I don't want to get too technical with these patients like telling them I'm a pantheist like Spinoza and Einstein -- this is just too much information that can be confusing to most people. Plus these thoughts are my personal belief system and I'd rather not go into this at work with patients.
So, what do you think would be an appropriate answer that would allow me to both tell the truth while giving them a satisfactory answer.
And I'm serious here, so please no vulgar stuff because I wouldn't say that to a patient under any circumstances.
Now, I don't feel I need to have someone take over for me when a person is wanting to inquire as my religious beliefs. I also don't feel I need to get a chaplain involved because this person isn't asking for something like prayer or that their religious convinctions be respected; it's more about finding out what "kind" of person I may be and/or "helping" me.
