1. Never attack someone else's beliefs. 2. Declarations of sincere belief are always welcome. And if you wish to rebut someone else's belief, then do it by expressing what you believe, NOT by pointing out which points of doctrine you find to be silly, erroneous, or misguided. 3. If you want to know what members of another religion believe, go to them and not to their enemies. 4. Always judge a church by its best members, never by its worst. Those who fail to live according to the tenets of their religion are not representative of that religion. 5. Leave room for divine envy. 6. Everyone has the right to believe or not what you are saying. 7. Listen (in this case read) for understanding, not to plan on what you will say to refute what the other is saying.
