Almost fired today because of my christian beliefs

By
Real Estate Agent with Co-Ka-Ne Consultants Inc.

I got an email from a listing client today saying they wish to cancel our agreement. Stumped, I called and asked what the problem was. Did they decide to keep their ranch? Had I done something wrong? The response was a rant about how they saw on twitter that I was a christian and they don't believe in that nonsense. I answered " And how does this effect me working to sell your property?" They couldn't come up with a coherant answer, but really had a problem with my beliefs. Finally they relented and said if you can sell the **!!!**!! go ahead and sell it.  This is the first time that I have experienced such hatred towards my faith in Christ. Any other stories out there?

JIM!!!  You know, we are NOT of this world, so.... worldly loves their own.  I think you handled it alright and the Lord will get the Glory out of it.... ask for wisdom on how to proceed, then duck and remember, this stuff that is happening to you is PROMISED.... think it not strange....

Be encouraged!  This SHOULD be happening more and more as the days get darker and darker.  The GOOD NEWS is that HE is there WITH you and will NEVER leave you, and though you may walk through the valley.... (you know the rest)... Count it all joy now, ya heah??

Very interesting - bet ya did see that one coming when you picked up the phone - definitely something not covered in new agent training - a script to defend your beliefs to a seller!

What would REALLY be neat is if the LORD were to work in some way through the transaction so they SEE your faith and belief(s).... that might OPEN thier eyes and they might get redeemed.....

Our Lord LOVES to show off his love for His creation.

We will see what happens!!
