Okay so here is the thing. I love my boyfriend and I love my church. But here is the thing, my boyfriend is Catholic and I am Baptist. I have problems with the Catholic faith and refuse to convert. My boyfriend is just doesn’t want to convert because he hates change. I don’t know if we ever will figure out this issue. I realized today that I want to have him in church with me. I want him to share my faith with him more than anything. I am just praying that he comes to see his need for a relationship with Jesus more than just on Sunday morning. He says that if we get more serious, he will start going to church with me but I wish he would start going now. So that is the first thing I have to figure out if I am walking away from. The next thing I have to figure out is if I need to leave my church. I love the people in the church. I teach the 3-4 year old Sunday school and Wednesday night classes and I love the kids in my classes. But here is the thing, I am the only college student who regularly attends the church. This has bugged me a little before but I have never felt like I do today. This weekend our church had a youth retreat and had Higher Ground from Southwest Baptist University (a college traveling ensemble) come and lead worship. The band stayed after the retreat and lead worship at my church. After church, I got to hang out with some of the band members and just talk with them. It was so nice to have people my age who love Jesus as much as I do in the church again. It made me realize that I miss fellowship with Christians in the same walk of life as me. Now I have to decide if I am leaving this church to find a church with more people my age or just grin and bear going to church without friends in the church. Advice on either issue is helpful!

Ok first thing: Honestly I have never had a boyfriend so I don’t really have any authority on relationship advice. But I’ll give you a little anyway. lol. All I’m going to say is that in a relationship I think that having at least some of the same religious views is very very important. Because ya’ll could have very different opinions on important matters.So While I can’t determine if you should end it, ya’ll should work out the whole ‘different denomintation thing’ unless ya’ll are the kinda people that don’t care. But it sounds like you do care, so I’d talk about it with him in depth before going any further in the relationship.
