So me and my girlfriend have been together for about a year now....and she is a really big christian, and I used to be but never really got very serious about it, and Abe's stuff feels so much more right to me.  Everything is Always good between us, and I have always respected her beliefs about chrisitianity, and with abes stuff it never causes any problems until.... she just recently went away to a christian college.. everything is good until tonight she calls me telling me how the pastor at her college was telling her if her bf isn't christian it isn't "right" for her to be with me.  I tried to be like why would you listen to your pastor?? but then realized that since she is a huge christian she thinks that everything about being a christian is right.  I know the best thing to do is let it go, but its hard to let it go when I feel like their is someone telling my gf what to do and just bc they are in a certain position in a church she believes it!!! can I get some feedback please... thanks everybody.

Hi Matt--


Good question.  Do you want to re-create the same intolerant energy that is being directed to you? Or instead, Christlike, can you allow their resistance?  Can you allow your girlfriend to think what she wants, and same with her college pastor? Can you model Christian tolerance by trusting that your girlfriend can find her way?  That's what Jesus did.  He said, "Forgive them, Father for they know not what they do."


Abe would say that when you are able to allow others who are not allowing you, that is the height of deliberate creation.  Finding reasons to feel good despite the circumstances. 




I'm so glad you asked this question. This is the Teachings of Abraham at work.  Can you find better feeling thoughts about this situation with your girlfriend and her pastor, and Christians in general?  I am sure you can.




But first, before you respond--






:)  IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!  :)




This forum will no longer be used for New Threads or replies.  As a result, this thread is now closed--Please copy your thread starter and create a new one at:

[Notice the difference from this site address, THEabeforum.com)

Please bookmark the new site address, http://www.AbeForum.com. :)  It is operational now with substantial improvements, new features and more additions than can be covered in this announcement. 

All of original Abe Forum content has been imported to its new home as of August 20th at 6AM EST.  Any content after that date has not been imported, and so further postings need to be made just on the new site and not to this one any longer.

Eventually, all threads will be closed here, we are starting that task now.  Please watch for announcements on the top thread on the new forum,
http://www.abeforum.com under the Abraham Teachings and you.


Matt, I will copy my response there, if you start the new thread and pm me the link once you've done it. I'm sure you'll get some excellent replies.  And actually, there are some other threads on a similar topic that you will find helpful--search "dating a non-aber".

See you at http://www.abeforum.com
