Hi fellow CD members, I made this thread in the A&A sub-forum
not too long ago and I would really appreciate thoughts from everyone. It's to do with a little situation between me and my grandma:

Coos, I guess I don't really know what to say. As a Christian, I can understand your Grandma's concern for your soul. She loves you and hopes to spend eternity with you.

And if his grandma was an atheist, you wouldn't have even resorted to that statement.

She loves you and it concerned where you will spend eternity. That's only natural when you know the joy of being saved.

He asked for advice, not a whole bunch of excuses as to why this in-your-face approach is justified.

I understand. The only thing I can think of, is ask her to take her concerns to the Lord. Shoving it down your throat won't help...As a Christian, I hope she knows only the Holy spirit can bring you to God. Sharing your faith is one thing, but Grandma is going a bit far, IMHO.

Tell her to keep praying for you....and that your uncomfortable discussing it at this time...and youll let ker know when your comfortable enough to talk....that your not ready. and the loving thing to do would be for her to give you time and space....

keeps her busy praying (which wont hurt you any)
and lets her think maybe at a later time there can be a discussion....

Wow Haaziq you are a bit negative!!!!! This is an open forum where people are allowed to express their feelings and opinions, hopefully without someone being unkind back to them. As a grand mother that was my heart response to that.
