Hey guys, I’m getting into the college mode of things, as my senior year of high school is quickly wrapping up. That being said, I will be moving away from (most) of my immediate family– I will be attending the same college as my brother. The thing is, I don’t agree with the religion of my family, and have kept it extremely private for fear of being kicked out of the house if anyone found out. In college, I will have to attend church with my brother… I just don’t know what to do… I would like to consider myself nondenominational but with my family being so incredibly convinced about the denomination they are involved in, its nearly impossible. If anyone has any advice that would be so very appreciated, thanks!

Hey! Is there any way you can apply to more colleges yet, or is this the set one for you? Also, can you possibly live on-campus and away from your brother so you don’t see him, or no? I’m a senior, too, and am also trying to get away from overbearing parents, too, to be honest

This is definitely the one for me–it feels “right”, and my parents are kind of set on the two of us going to church together every Sunday. :/

Is it in a town far away from your parents themselves? Because if they are, you could try to talk to your brother without them and tell them that you love him and care for him, but you want to take your faith into your own hands.

It’s a town about two hours from my house, my parents will contact frequently.

I know it will be difficult, but I advise telling your family and parents the truth. Scripture says that “the truth will set you free”. I’m guessing that they’re going to find out eventually anyways. Pray to God for strength! 🙂
