Are we morally obligated to remain friends with people who encourage us to live a sinful lifestyle?
I’m a man who personally struggles against same-sex attraction and I believe homosexual sex is sinful. I recently reconnected with an old girlfriend from high school who now has 2 lesbian daughters, and she does NOT believe that a homosexual lifestyle is sinful. When trying to engage her in a discussion about why it is sinful, she told me she firmly believes God has led her to believe it is NOT sinful, and thus she will not change her beliefs. Despite telling her I believe homosexual sex is sinful/immoral, and explaining how I struggle with it, she has still told me she thinks I should find a man to be in a relationship with.
To me, it is clear she will not change her position, and I’m starting to wonder if it is a wise idea for me to continue trying to rebuild a friendship with her after all these years. What should I do?
