  • My answer would be, "Yes, thanks for asking." It gets annoying to me too, but I know they only ask that because they care about me and love me.
  • Ignore him first, and then if he got in my face, I'd say "That's none of your business. Worry about yourself and please leave me alone"
  • I wouldn't. I would give them a pained smile and return to my book or iPod. Just because someone asks you something doesn't mean they are entitled to the answer. Most children learn this at about the age of five or less. :o)
  • Well, if they had to ask me that, this would suggest a shaky faith on their behalf, since I thought that it was absolute for Christians that Jesus is, indeed, our savior. If, on the other hand, they were asking me if I acknowledged this, I would say no, if I had the energy to actually argue with some random dude on the bus. Otherwise, probably just shrug and engage in my GTFO face.
  • I would tell him yes and consider him as my brother.
  • I would look at them, and say "I do not discuss religion or politics except with close friends. Please preach elsewhere. If you continue to bother me, I will report you.
  • "So if I pray to him, will he save me from people like you?"
  • Were I fast on my feet, I'd say "Yes, but how do you know he's yours? Can you explain to me substitutionary atonement and tell me what it means to you?" I seriously doubt that many such folks actually are in line to be saved. They're far too often so far theologically misguided as to be off the straight and narrow.
  • I would answer with something like "Yes. I was talking to him just last night. He warned me about you". But that's just me.
  • "middle finger", leave me alone, or ignore.
  • I would be bewildered I think. I would never ask or answer such a question !
  • with a simple YES or NO, IF he was directing it at me personally...but asked during a sermon ? either i would listen or NOT...:)justme
  • I would glare at him/her and, if s/he asked me again, punch him/her in the face. But that's just what I WOULD do, not what I think you SHOULD do.
  • Whenever someone is trying to sell me something I always have the same response, "No thanks, I'm not interested." Actually, whenever I know I'm going to be on public transport for a long time (like a train or plane) I always bring a "just in case" book with me in case someone starts talking to me (about anything) and I don't want to return the conversation. It's usually a book that has "OCCULT" or "SATANISM for Dummies" in big letters on the front. You'd be surprised how quickly people pretend like they didn't just say something to you.
  • I would say: Yes, Jesus is my savior. He is the savior of the entire human race. For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3) With love in Christ.
  • "No."
  • I'd tell him politely at first "No thank you." If the idiot persists, then he's gonna discover my fists of fury.
  • I live on the edge of the Bible Belt and this happens quite often. Most of the time I simply tell these jerks that I'm jewish and, unlike the pitiful Christian, I have the same blood as their savior running through my veins and feel no need for their inferior beliefs. None of it's true, but screw them. My relationship with my God is personal and I have no compulsion to discuss it with strangers. I consider the question a blatant attempt at invasion of my privacy and it pisses me off that these idiots don't have the sense to know this. I've noticed that they've become more aggressive in the last few years. They often follow you, or block your passage. They are more reluctant to take no for answer. This may require a new strategy with a firm message attached. So, in light of this, I have formulated a new plan. The next time one of these pompous evangelistic assholes, who are invariably male, ask me if I know Jesus, or if I've been saved, my answer will be to move in close and in a low, menacing voice I will ask them, "How many times a week do you fuck your wife?" I won't give them time to answer, I'll just make sure they can feel my hot breath on their cheek. "Does she take it up the ass? Does she swallow? How about you? You like it up the ass? A little prostate massage to help get you off? What's the matter? You got a problem discussing intimate relationships with strangers?" If the asshole gets physical, I am perfectly prepared to put him down. If done properly, under the Florida "Stand Your Ground" Law, I can actually get away with this. I hate these people, there are many people besides me that feel the same way, and the assholes need to know this.
  • "No, he's my gardener".
  • It's really NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
  • "Nope, that's the flying spaghetti monster's job" :3
  • That assh0le? Hell no. That generally shuts them up.
  • He is not my saviour but he does a great job being a prophet. That'll do me.
  • no your mom is. hahaha
  • I would make some comment like, " That's nice - now would you quit bothering me about it?". If that didn't work, I'd jump on him and start expounding all the benefits of worshiping Satan or The Buddha. And if that failed I'd get up and tell the driver that there's a deranged person on the bus harassing passengers.
  • I would tell him that I don't take kindly to folks preaching to me. Go preach elsewhere.
  • A menacing glare and a very loud, "GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM ME YOU PIECE OF SHIT!" usually does it. That will get the driver's attention as well. But, if they want to rock&roll, it would be my pleasure. I hate these guys. I treat them like any other aggressive street person who blocks my path, accosts me in a situation with little or no chance for evasion, or simply won't leave me alone.
  • I'd like to say something really snide and abrasive, but I know in that actual situation, I would simply say "no". But.....if it went further than that, I'd love to dismantle their fairytale beliefs.
  • I would certainly not deny him as he has been with me all my life and carried me through many difficult times when I needed him. It doesn't matter who is asking me or where he/she is, Jesus is my savior and that's what I would say. However there's no need to listen to an entire speech about some other religion after that. I'd prob. try to duck out of that part.
  • Just say "No, I gave Jesus up for Lent" and keep walking. Or say, "Jesus saves at Washington Mutual, but I've moved on to J.P. Morgan-Chase." They will understand.
  • I usually say no, and then tell them I am Agnostic. Or I tell them I was raised Catholic.
  • I would just say, "No, he isn't and I couldn't care less about whatever you want to talk about." But then, I am an atheist.
  • I just say no..most times they go away but if that tempts them to try to convert or school me, I can be more tactful.
  • I think the world has already some knowledge of who Jsus is. (unless you are one of those who speaks only "£$$£$$%^&*()!£$%%^^&**) AND lives deep in the ends of the unexplored corners of this world or on the mooon. Otherwise you would find it really new..and interesting. These people need to know who doesn't know and who doesn't want to know. LOL
  • I would probably give a weak smile and say something like, "Not interested."
