So recently I chatted with one of my friends who has turned away from Christianity. We discussed a number of different topics such as why God let’s bad things happen, and the principles of free will and forgiveness, and so on.
However, one thing I’m not sure how to handle, is the overall idea of how God uses us. Like for us, it’s such a captivating idea that the creator of the universe wants to use us in our everyday lives to reach out to people and help them in their journeys. But how do you discuss with someone that despises this? She doesn’t like how God can use her against her will, even bringing up that it was unfair he even uses the devil. She said she doesn’t want to love God at the moment, but still wants to love others. And is angry that she can’t love others without loving God. She hates that she has to ignore her own self in order to get back at God.
I can tell a lot of this is just hurt she’s experiencing from a recent event, but I would really love to know how to discuss this with her as I can’t seem to find any articles on it.
Thanks, and God Bless
