    Never argue over someone’s FAITH, because you can’t force the person to believe whatever you have to say.
    The BEST you can do is to accept what the person have to say, so it just look like THE ARGUMENT DIED BEFORE IT STARTED.
    You cannot change someone’s belief or opinion, it takes the GRACE of GOD. YOU CAN ONLY SURVIVE AT YOUR OWN PACE.
