I'm so glad I decided to re-watch The big Kahuna......In any given Kevin Spacey movie, there is always some deeper meaning than the simple plotline. The discussions on religion and the way Danny DeVito tells the new guy that he is just as much of a marketing rep for steering a conversation with a potential client towards Jesus and such was SO undeniably true. You can have a personal relationship with Jesus/God, but the second that you walk out your door and start conversations with people about Jesus/God, you are essentially marketing something/someone. You asking someone about how they are feeling, their family, etc. is MUCH more personal, and MUCH more genuine. Try asking someone how their day is and get in depth about their life, instead of focusing on saving a person. You might just find that they are happy the way they are. Religion is a topic that you bring up way later down the line. Otherwise, you might just alienate the person, or look like you are looking down on them for their lack of religion. Try getting to know the person for who they are, not for how often they pray or go to church.
