    Are You Compromising Your Christian Values For the Sake of Friends?

    Ladies, friends are an important part of school life. In some cases, we take our close friends with us throughout our lives.

    But what if your friends don’t share your Christian values? In fact, what if they reject them? Would you set those beliefs aside or compromise them in order to please or appease your bffs?

    Girls, your friends are important, but they should never stop you from loving God, following Him, praising Him and glorifying His name. If they do try to hinder your efforts to follow Christ, then you should ask yourself whether they’re really your friends!

    1. There are never enough poll answers to these types of things! None of those answers cover how I deal with friends that don’t share my religious views!
      With friends they always know that I’m a Christian. People that don’t respect that don’t have to be friends with me, and I can respect friends that don’t share my views. As long as everyone is nice to each other there isn’t really a problem. I don’t believe that’s compromising my values.

    2. I have several Christian friends whose beliefs are different from mine on certain issues. In that case, I just don’t talk about it with them too much. But if I had a friend who rejected Christianity (which I think I might; they haven’t come out and said it directly), then I would just pray for them and try to open up spiritual conversation with them. I wouldn’t compromise any of my beliefs right now for anything. 🙂

    3. My friend has mentioned once that she was never baptized or has ever really been to church. So, basically I just continue with my friendship and don’t really mention my beliefs around her. I have other friends for that. I don’t feel sad around her. It’s not like Mar is a bad person. 🙂 She just doesn’t really want to go to a church. I don’t even mention it around her, honestly. <3

    4. I never compromise my beliefs for my friends. So far i have managed to stay friendly with just about anyone i meet, so as long as we all get along i dont have a problem with it. I do pray for those who seem lost or reject God in any way. Some of my friends i have kept at a distance, but kept them all the same because even though they are very far from Christ i still want to pray and maybe be an influence on them through my actions and spirit! I never would compromise anything to please them still, however. 😀
