I myself have just found christ and need to let my friends just like another post i just read from “dresserandkeeper” I know as it is actually something to be proud of not ashamed. I feel i will loose a life long friend and most of my friends within my group if I do as we are a very tight nit group.
To be honest without even knowing until late they are actually closer to the path of destruction than i realised as my best friend recently whilst drunk took me down to his garage where i actually physically felt sick and like i couldn’t breathe, a minute or two later he pulled out an on tape cover of a band i used to listen to and only found out he still does, it was a Deicide cover (deicide meaning Dei= god cide=kill) and said “this is my bible”. Another friend within my group who is a good man just making stupid choices quoted on his facebook page a song line which goes “Who needs a god when you have saTan” this really concerned me for my friends emotional and spiritual wellbeing”
I feel i must break free of my old friends as i am fighting for my own soul, but know it will be hard as we have been friends for a long time and there are some very good people (infact they are all good friends some are just misguided) within my group but if i loose my best friend i basically lose them all.
At the end of the day I know my new found friend and personal saviour in jesus is more important than my own friends but i know i will struggle with this aswell. I wish they would change their ways aswell but I am doubtful that would happen, which makes me sad
