I Have a Friend Who Bacame Christian

She is an awesome girl, very funny, very understanding, when I met her she was trieng everything to become my friend, she is one of the sweetest persons I've ever met, and very shortly we became best friends. we had calsses together and after school we used to talk on the phone for hours.

She used to drink alcohol and she smoked and went to parties and did a lot of illegal stuff, but now she doesn't drink anymore not even a drop of alcohol, she stoped smoking and doesn't go to bars, now she goes to church everyday, her whole family is like this and now she decided to become like them again. She dropped out of school because she wanted to work and donate the money, and all she does now is working and church. I havent' seen her for months or talked to her and when I called her yesterday for the first time she didn't seem to be happy to hear from me. I wish she would be like she used to be so I can have her back as my best friend but it was her decision and I accept that but I have the feeling that she is throwing her life away. But everytime I tell her that she gets mad.

I agree as people use religion to control other people's lives because of their own little hang ups and insecurities. Religion is a tool for hatred. A real Christian is some one who loves everyone and does not use it to attack other people or put down minorities or judge other people. When you start hating other people then you are not a Christian but a Satanist.

It is really hard to rehash the good times you two had with her life changes that she has made. A lot of Christains and other religous groups don't like to be reminded of their wilder partying times where their new peers in the church look at that as such a sinful time! I believe in God but I have a problem with organized religion. I went to church a lot when I was younger. We were very poor and didn't have much. It was so awkward to walk in to church with everyone looking and judging. There are a lot of hypocrites that go to church. I think a lot of it people do for status. I don't think you have to be a bible banger to make it into heaven. People get real wrapped up into that if you don't do this or live like this you are going to hell! I don't believe that. People get brainwashed into thinking that. Your friend will probably never be the same unless she falls of the Holy wagon.
