A guy invited me to some fellowship thing while at a friend's dinner. My friend, who is in the same church as this guy, immediately stated that I was not religious. Kind of threw me off guard but I respected that he did that because my friends, who are very Catholic, understand that I'm not. The guy pressed on for a bit but I just told him that I was not interested.

Religion is like insurance. You pay a premium now by going to Church and get ur payout when the terms mature, ie when u die. Any no one likes insurance brokers.

^^ But despite what you think, everyone still needs them
You have a mortgage + wife + no life insurance? glhf.

To the OP, it sounds like you've already tried this, but you need to tell them as explicitly as possible to stop asking you about church because you are not interested in Christianity, and you have your own beliefs.

They are fed this idea that you need to spread Gods word in order to be a good Christian. And by fed, I mean brainwashed. It's best just to be honest with the guy. Tell him nicely, you appreciate the materials, but you are finding it somewhat offensive lately because you believe in _____ instead.
If you actually know what you believe in, then by all means, fill in the blank. The problem is, most people, including Christians, don't know what they believe.
Now, if you're gonna used the term brainwashed, let's use it both ways. You're being brainwash with secular humanism, but that doesn't make you any better or worse than a Christian. Most people in this world are being brain washed with secular humanism; who's the sheep now?

BTW, I define secular humanism as a 'religion' because most people will define a religion as being functional, and not substantive.

If you actually looked into the Bible, you'd see that any church that preaches 'we are good' is, right off the bat, preaching the opposite of what the Bible supports. Also, I should note that if you're going to bash the historicity of the Bible, let's save that for another thread.
