As a teacher of Adult Bible Study Curriculum you need to be sensitive that people may walk in to the room with a variety of varying viewpoints. This is not always a bad thing. Some view points will have to change and I believe as God works in their lives they will. What usually happens though is we either freak out when someone disagrees with us or we do not even consider that someone might disagree with us. Then we go off on tangents assuming everyone in the room thinks they way we do and people end up getting hurt over some trivial soapbox moment we wanted to have. I do not mean that you should back down from what you believe in if it lines up with scripture. But do not turn people off to the Gospel over an issue that does not even matter. It will render your teaching of the Adult Bible Study Curriculum useless. It will also do great damage to the reputation of Christianity as a whole. So think things through before you say them.
