MamaB,

Thanks for responding back because this has really been bothering me. Just want to clarify too, that I understand how precious one's faith is, whether it's christianity, catholism, etc.

Her faith and belief in christianity and the "truth" isn't what I'm concerned with. What bothers me is that she seems to be pushing it on me and is developing a closed-mind towards other types of faith, thinking others have chosen the wrong path.

I've went with her a few times to church now because I am interested in developing a stronger relationship with the spirit. I like the church and it's worship, but I'm having a difficult time with the preaching aspect of it.

Being preached to has never worked for me. Rather than being told what to do, it has served me best to be guided or directed towards finding the answers myself, if that makes sense.

I believe in God and prayer. Yet, I feel so much more confused and distant from God and myself after spending time with my friend, and not necessarily from church itself.

I guess I'm not sure what I'm asking. I'm really confused about all this. It's making me doubt what I believe to be true and what has been working so well for me up to this point.

I also understand what you said about newbies being so excited that they want to spread the joy, yet i really don't think this is the case with my friend. What's she spread to me is confusion and self-doubt. I still wonder if there's a correlation between bi-polar disorder and obsession with God??

Trying to make sense of it all.

Arrianna
