Six months ago, I lost two young friends of mine. As a person of faith, it's been incredibly difficult to think about the afterlife in their regards since neither believed in God. Many Christians have been shoving Heaven and Hell down my throat, claiming that final judgement reached them. How do you handle losing someone of different beliefs in relation to your own faith?
I would cut these people off by the middle of their second sentence. I would say enthusiastically, "That is not my understanding of God's Love and grace, but hey! Thanks for sharing."
