I have a friend who claims to be a Christian, but he denies many of the very fundamental truths of Christianity. He thinks that all religions are just as legitimate, just different cultures. I've tried to witness to him some, but the fact is, he does intimidate me. He's very caustic and argumentative about a lot of things, not just Christianity. He has a tendency to 'get in people's faces' and turns a lot of people off.
So, he was laughing at one of his co-workers who he offended by singing the song, 'Jesus Christ, Superstar'. The co-worker is a Christian and thinks it's blasphemous. My friend obviously doesn't. He thought the movie was great. I told him I disagreed, that I found it to be blasphemous. But it'd been so long since I saw or read anything about the movie that I couldn't remember the key points. He wasn't looking for a debate about it. It just came up in conversation. But it has bugged me to no end that I didn't tell him specifically what was wrong with the movie. (By the way, I don't work with him. He was relating the incident between his co-worker and him to me.)
This is what I would like opinions on. I've found an article from Faith Free Presbyterian Church that describes why the movie is blasphemous. I've considered sending it to him through email, but I know how dismissive he is about everything, and how he has a strange way of deciphering things. Should I send it anyway, or should I let it go? Have I failed by not explaining to him why it's wrong?
He doesn't even grasp the fundamental truths of Christianity, even though he claims to be a Christian, so it seems like it's pointless to argue about the blasphemy of the movie.
