Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments OK, this is Christian related, but I'm not sure where else to put it!

One of my best friends is an atheist, and I'm really uncomfortable about talking to her about Christianity, because she disagrees with everything I say. I haven't put any of these comments that I make here on my update feed because of her.



I don't know what to do!

You don't have to "force Christianity down her throat" (let me tell you, Raven's gonna give you a hard time about that if ya do!), but you also shouldn't just… hide that little light of yours. Sorry to quote a little kid song, but that's one way to put it. :) Matthew 5:13-16


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Yes I know but she knows I'm a Christian so whaddoido?

i'd say we should prob. try and move this to one of the groups alex has made - the one about if you need advice or whatever . . . lolz. just look at the groups and you'll prob. find the one i mean xD

but yeah. if she's disagreeing with you all the time, just bring Christianity up when you can (this is nothing against you, Your Friendly Neighborhood Grammar Nazi - i just think it should still be brought up sometimes ;) ). for instance, and this is just an example, something you could maybe try doing is if she says 'hey! how are ya?' say something like 'i'm good by God's grace!'. or something ;) like alex said - bring it up when the time is appropriate - but also like what sandy said, let your light shine too. the bible says that - Let your light so shine before men . . .

so yeah. i'd say don't shove it down her throat, but also don't just leave it be so much it's like when you're around her you don't even believe in God.

hope that all makes sense x)

and while i might civilly disagree with her shoving it down someone's throat, sandy, i wouldn't "give her a hard time" :P buuuuut you were joking around. lol. :D

in the beginning of your comment, I think you mean "discussions" when you talk about "groups." Correct? :D

Well, you were saying that sooooo much to me back during the debate with Kira and Jules… it got really, really annoying :) sorry but you used it waaaaay too much back then ;)

hm...you're at quite a dilemma. main point is you still need to try to help her become christian but not in a forceful way and make sure not to forget mentioning christ to her completely because then your not helping anybody. sorry i can't say anything helpful but you're going to need to talk to her.

yups i did :)

well, sorry, little man! but i'm sure there was some reason i was saying it (not that i remember all that much of it lol xP):P

(and yes i call sandy 'little man' - the only reason i can offer for that is my absolute insanity xD xD xD)

yeah . . . it is kinda a dilemma.

i'd also say pray about it. "Pray without ceasing" the Bible says. whenever we have a "dilemma" in life we have to just keep coming to God and asking him to give us wisdom, you know?

i'll pray about it too ;)


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Yes.......thanks for the help guys!

Well NOW you are. I got sick of waiting. Now I'm on again.

Lol, and I'm saying this on GR instead of just chatting to you :)

Well, does she disagree about EVERYTHING? I mean one of my friends is an atheist and I don't have a hard time talking with her.


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments well, not everything- but she's that kind of person that you can't argue with out loud (or maybe i'm that kind of person that can't argue out loud) and so there are loads of things that she says that I definitely don't believe- and I don't know what to say to her....


message 17: by Aoibheann (new)

Aoibheann | 47 comments Just say that you don't really believe that and if she'd mind talking about something else now. In other words, change the subject after telling her what you think.


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments yeah thats a good idea- cool! tnx


message 19: by Aoibheann (new)

Aoibheann | 47 comments Glad if you like it:) I wasn't too sure if it would be helpful.


message 21: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 373 comments Mod
Ah, let me just say, don't be the Sandy of last year and start arguments with atheists left and right. It's really stupid.


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Me? I don't. Seriously, I (unfortunately) have more arguments with Christians then I do athiests, since I believe in evolution and gay marriage.


message 23: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 373 comments Mod
Yep, that's me too. *sigh* Are you the one I was debating gay marriage with? In that case I'm one of those Christians :)


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Yeah.......I think so.


message 26: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 373 comments Mod
Send me some cheesecake please! Your pic is taunting!!!


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Well.......I find it taunting too so don't feel bad!
Also, cheesecake doesn't travel by comment, so that would be technically impossible! But I could try.....

Hang on, let me just try one thing...

ACCIO CHEESECAKE!!!!


.....


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments noooooooooooo it didn't work.. :(

ah well! BEE HAPPY!


message 29: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 373 comments Mod
Huh?! What are you talking about? IT DID WORK! THANKS FOR THE CHEESECAKE!!!!!


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments ANY TIME!!!!!!!!!


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments wow....accio works...should use it more often!

My advice would be to just agree to disagree. Accept that you both have different opinions, and agree to be respectful of each other's beliefs.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments Who loves the beach? :D

Hiking? :D

Walking in a park?


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments I DO!!!! All of them! But mostly climbing mountains...


message 35: by Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (last edited Jul 12, 2010 02:32PM) (new)

Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments Climbing mountains is awesome. :D What mountains do you like?


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments The Italian Dolomites in....ITALY! How did you know that...


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments I've never heard of those, but I've seen pictures of Italian mountains that looked absolutely gorgeous.

Ha ha. XD


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments They are! And btw, the Dolomites are in the Alps, but in a certain part of it.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments The Alps? My goodness, that must be amazing! I am so jealous of you! :D


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Hehe- my family come from there! My dad's side anyhow! :)


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments Cool! My heritage is Irish, Scottish, and Polish (in the summer, I don't tan....I burn).

I'm going camping! I'm going camping! I'm going camping! I'm going camping!

I shall be gone until Sunday. I might get a chance to come back on before I leave this evening, though. I'm going to be in the White Mountains! My favorite mountain area (and the only one I've ever been to). :D


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments I TAN!!! yey!

*talks to wall* I wonder where the White Mountains are...


(and same- the alps are the only mountain area i've ever been to!)


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments Well, the alps are a pretty good set of mountains. XD

The White Mountains are in New Hampshire, though they extend a bit into Vermont too.


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments In America? Ok.


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments Yep, in America. I've never been out of the country before.


Chiara  ♪*CheesecakeLover*♪ | 684 comments Oh- I've never been out of Europe.

Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments I'd love to go to Europe one day. It sounds beautiful.

Camping was tons of fun. Three of the canoes tipped. XD


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 200 comments They're in New Hampshire, and run a little bit into eastern Vermont. We drove to New Hampshire and canoed for eight miles until we reached our Vermont campsite. It was lots of fun, though my hands are a bit blistered from the paddles. But I have a Spongebob band-aid, so it's all good. ;)

Mexico! I would love to go somewhere that speaks a foreign language. And those gorgeous Caribbean islands most definitely count! That must have been an amazing experience. :D
