So I found myself freshman year longing to be in the drama nerd group…and I fit in there. There were good Christian people there, or so I thought. As a senior, the past three years, I have grown close to some of the girls, and the closer I got to them, the further I realized they were from Christ. It hurts my heart…One girl in particular. We are not close, but we talk as if we are (the magic of high school friendships). We got onto the topic of religion, and we both have the same denomination, but when the topic of gay marriage came up, she faltered. One of our joint best friends is a guy, who has a boyfriend…he knows my stance, but nonetheless he is one of my best friends. We all have our sins, why would I judge him for sinning differently than I do? The problem is, she condones his behaviors. She likes to, “Stand up for the small guy.” But as a Christian and follower of Christ and His Word, would she not know His opinions on this from what our joint belief is? That is just one instance, the way she talks, and carries herself, I do not sense Christ around her. Where I am struggling is the fact that the bible calls for us to hold our brothers and sisters accountable, do I talk to her? Do I try to lead her? How do I handle this?

So by no means take what I’m about to say as the only truth. But if I were in your situation I’d try to find a time where she was calm and willing to listen, and I’d explain to her everything that’s on my heart in LOVE regarding her and how’s she’s been acting lately. Hope this helps 🙂

If you do hold her accountable I suggest you talk to her in private first
