If you have Christian friends (Catholic and Non-Catholic) that go to church on Sunday but there actions the rest of the week dont show any signs of Christ living in them what,if anything would you do?
Example 1, I have several friends, acquantices that go to church on Sunday but that’s it. If you didn’t know they went to church on Sunday you wouldn’t even imagine that they did go to church. I am not condemning them. It bothers me as their friend and fellow christian brother to see them do this. I do pray for them, but if you were in this situation how you handle this? Would you politely engage in conversation and see where the Holy Spirit leads you?
Example 2, It also bothers when I see a fellow christian brother or sister wearing some sort of cross or religious symbol of that matter and the first words out of there mouth are @#$%^$&. I know they believe in either the Jesus, God and or the Church because of the jewelry they are wearing. But my heart aches because to the non-believing world this is a wrong representation of Gods love and Christianity. Again, I am not condemning them, but in my heart I want to say something. I do pray for these individuals when I come across them. How would or do you handle this situation?
I dont want to be rude but I am also sure that there actions are probably not pleasing to God and if I could help them as a christian brother I would love to.
