I know this young male who has had some bad experiences with his 'old church'. Well, since he is 20.....he finally left this church on his own. Now, you have to understand that he was raised in a church that was very strict and believed men could only wear long-sleeved shirts and pants all year long and everywhere you go and that women could only wear dresses......this person is a young adult and feels very rebellious against all things involving church and the people in it all because of his experiences with this one church. They weren't allowed to watch movies before and now they are doing so out of rebellion, not solely because they want to. They are also drinking what they say is a "little" and they are going to clubs with unchristian friends that they just met at work.....this person has NO Christian friend(s) except myself.......I don't know what more I can do. I give them devotionals, bible scriptures, and talk with them and encourage them without condoning their behavior. I love this person dearly and would hate to see them totally separated from God forever. They believe that God does not love them anymore and does not answer their prayers. This person's own dad told them that they are praying that something horrible happens to them to open their eyes. All this person knows are strict rules from a church that basically made them up.....because they aren't in the scriptures. They got yelled at for every little thing and critized all their life! .....and have basically been driven from church. Please, please pray for this person. That they may see what they need in life....and that is a close and personal relationship with God. While, I thank you for any prayers you can offer. I am also asking.....what more can I do besides what I've already been doing? Another thing I should tell you....that might help you understand how much this is hurting me is.....that I really love this person and I believe that God placed me in his life for a reason......and I know he needs to get right with God and that he needs to do that before anything else in his life but I don't really feel like I can do much besides pray....and try to get other to help me by praying for him also. So...anyways prayers and advice would be much appreciated! Thanks! UPDATE.....BAD News.... Well.....he has no money....at all....not even a dollar.....he has negative $220 in his bank account because of bills....he owes a restaurant $10 for a meal he ate because he was hungry and his check bounced......right now he isn't eating at all....unless he gets food credit from work.....which when he gets that he only eats one meal a day......but he doesn't get that everyday. He told me he is probably going to for bankruptcy. He feels like a loser, a misfit, a sorry nobody. He thinks he's a failure and that his whole life is screwed up. He is totally devasted. I feel near tears just thinking about him.......he's suffering a lot. His parents won't help him at all......he has nobody.....no money....no food.....no nothing. PLEASE just PRAY like crazy! I don't know what to do!!!! He can't even buy gas.....he had to borrow $10 from a friend to get enough gas to go to work. This is so DEVASTING!!!!!!! His Birthday is January 12th....also....what a great 21st birthday.....I feel so bad............I feel like I am going to burst into tears........
