I don’t really know what category this fits under,apologetics, family life, etc…
However, I have a relative who is suspicious of organized religion and recently wrote me this in an email:
***Now there, young niece… I do NOT hate the Catholic Church…I am suspicious of ALL organized religion…but that does not translate into hate. I recognize and accept that for most people, they need the structure of a church environment. I am totally non-judgmental as far as another person's beliefs. Where I draw the line is when someone tries to pull me in that direction. ***
What do I do with that? Its so frustrating and hurtful, but then I think of Colossians 4: 5-6 and I have to answer him as lovingly as I can but also I feel defend my faith. I’m not the intellectual snob type, but really need assistance and want to do more than just pray. And I don’t mean that prayer is in anway bad, wrong, or less important, but I feel action needs to be taken with his statement. I can’t just let it lie there! Please guys I need your help!
God Bless and thanks for your thoughts! :shrug:
