An Atheist writes, "Don't try to shove it [meaning Jesus Christ] down my child's throat."
This type of remark is actually a bullying tactic. It is meant to intimidate you and to keep you from fulfilling what God has given you to do. Keep in mind that God has never commanded us, as Christians, to try to push anyone toward God. God doesn't force Himself on anyone. However, we are to be obedient to the Holy Spirit and speak the Utterances of God. When we do that, those who hate God will be offended. Some may try to hurt us or at least bully us. This is usually a tactic of those who are insincere and merely trolling, that is, they troll for Christians as one would troll for fish, with provocative statements or questions but a mind that is totally closed and set on destruction. Here is a page on how to handle trolling.
An easy way to handle these people is to tell them the truth:
Every evidence that is used against God consists of made-up stories (lies), arbitrary assumptions (lies), or irrational statements (insanity). We have not followed cleverly designed made-up stories, arbitrary assumptions, or irrational statements. Rather, we follow the Living Christ, Who leads us and speaks the Utterances of absolute, genuine fullness of Life to us. Just take evolution for example, a story that is told to directly conflict with what God is telling us in and through Scripture: "When evolution is seen as a storytelling game rather than a serious attempt at scientific explanation, it suddenly makes sense."
Whatever they come back with will consist of made-up stories (lies), arbitrary assumptions (lies), or irrational statements (insanity). This is true whether they say "Evolution is science," "There is no God," "God doesn't speak to you," "You are stupid," "You don't understand science," "I don't have enough evidence to believe," "There is no evidence for God," or any other thing, so just say some variation of the following:
Thank you for providing an excellent example: Every evidence that is used against God consists of made-up stories (lies), arbitrary assumptions (lies), or irrational statements (insanity). We have not followed cleverly designed made-up stories, arbitrary assumptions, or irrational statements. Rather, we follow the Living Christ, Who leads us and speaks the Utterances of absolute, genuine fullness of Life to us. (example using this on an blog)
This is an extremely strange challenge since the ungodly, through public "education," push ungodly doctrines on Christian children every day. The ungodly have basically had their way in the schools systems from preschool through post graduate--especially those institutions funded by tax dollars. The dogmas of the ungodly are being taught aggressively and consistently.
The best solution, if we are not going to teach religion, would be to eliminate public education. Then the ungodly could send their children to ungodly schools that they pay for and followers of Christ could send their children to godly schools that they pay for. (Read More)
Just a note to Christian parents: You may allow your Christian child to watch some nice, non-violent, non-vulgar cartoons or children's programming on TV and find out that they are being indoctrinated with Atheistic, New Age, or some other Anti-Christ philosophy. Some of these dogmas that are being secretly taught to your children would include Evolutionism, Materialism, Naturalism, Uniformitarianism, Socialism, Old-Earth-ism, and Human-Goodness-ism.
In addition to the programming on TV, you have the same thing being pushed using movies, books, video games, web sites, news media, magazines, and even some Sunday School Classes. Not only that, but many activities are laced with music that has an ungodly spirit, even when you are shopping or eating in a restaurant. All of these have a terrible effect on your children (and on you). Listen to the Holy Spirit and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and your family into righteousness.

2 Corinthians 6:14,17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? ... Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
2 Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
Genesis 6:12; 1 Peter 3:20b And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh [the majority] had corrupted his way upon the earth. ... 1 Peter 3:20b Once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

Matthew 7:13,14 Enter ye in at the strait [restricted] gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth to life, and few there be that find it.

Therefore I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my Salvation: my God will hear me.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Galatians 1:6-11 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ to another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the Gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other gospel to you than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel to you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the Gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

Galatians 3:1a O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth?

Luke 6:22,23 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in Heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers to the prophets.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
John 17:14-17 I have given them Thy Word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth.
1 Peter 4:2-4 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
