i have practacly the same situation. If you attend a youth group maybe ask em nonchalantly if they wanna come check it out one day but don't try to push it on them just ask like once or something. but if its boring maybe don't ask em to come... it might just make them more sure of themselves. learn to shake off ignorant things others say and except them no matter what they believe... you know the truth

tell them what jesus has done for them. try to invite them to your sunday school or church and see how they like it. if they do, ask them if they would like to be members of your church. *its up to their parents though

Seriously, OP. No. You are the kind of Religious person people don't like (mostly Christians but others can be to). I'm an atheist and I think it's absolutely fine to have believe in a God or higher power (I'm not like you), but it is COMPLETELY unacceptable to shove your beliefs down other people's throats. If you keep going through life being ignorant of others, than you will not go far, my friend.
Reread your post and think about what other people think.
You sound young btw, if you are under 13 you are still learning, but if you are over 13, than you are old enough to know how to act respectfully.
"I just want the atheists to believe in their maker, but I can't seem to do so. Can you help?"
"the atheists" That's a label and that's not acceptable.
"I can't seem to do so."- *shakes head*
"in their maker"- excuse me, who are you to say that? How do you know God is the Maker... ???
I'm not saying this to be mean, but live and learn.
-Peace and Love-

Don't try to change your friend. I am an Atheist and my friend Sarah is always inviting me to her church and trying to teach me everything. It makes Christians seem very touchy and unwilling to except. What i do is just go with it. Instead of telling your friend about your religion and trying to convince her ask her about atheism. Trust me, its a huge relief. plus she might loosen up a little. Just try to feel as comfortable as possible with other religions because Christianity is not the only religion. As you get older there will be more and more Atheists.
