Depends on how it was printed and the materials used i guess..but some costs $6?

I can relate to your situation though..i have a boyfriend who is not a christian and now the church knows about him they gave me two choices..God or my boyfriend..its not hard to choose, but its hard to move on and let go maybe..i chose God because in Him you'll find all the happiness there is in life..but i love my boyfriend and encouraged him to study the bible. Why dont you try it..God Uses your girlfriend so He can reach and talk to you..give it a try..you wont lose anything! In fact you'll have more than what you have right now ^^

She is trying to get me inducted into her church thing, and tells me that we can't get engaged unless I do, and bla bla bla. However, did she really just get me nothing for Christmas? Please tell me they are selling them for atleast over 50 dollars?
She's clearly looking for a convert, not a husband.

The Holy Spirit works in His Time, not in ours. Absolutely the wrong approach!

One of the signs of a Jerk guy is one that complains about his girl in public.

She should dump you.

Well, it depends on the reason for the complaint, how public and the sentiment behind the complaint.

I'm not completeley convince that this guy has a girlfriend! lol

If they he did and their relationship had any depth whatsover, whe would know his girlfriend well enough to have not been blindsided by such a gift!

Maybe they are just young and don't know what a waste of time it is to be in a relationship where each thinks they can profoundly change the other.

Fair enough, I will clarify.

Based on the guys complaint, he's a jerk and she should dump him.
