Freedom of religion. Don't try to change your friends they should believe in what they think is right and have their own opinion.

i have just about the same problem!!! Except i sometimes have troble with following god and not my friends. I grew up in a family that went to church until we got too busy and just stopped going!i have family members close to me who don't believe!

It is up to God, to convince people to follow him (John 6:44, 16:13). The Bible also says that a Christian is supposed to "pray in the closet" (Matthew 6:5-6). Which means you are not supposed to pray in public view to impress."

HI! I ACTUALLY HAVE "THE SAME" problem. One of my really close friends is an atheist. And as a Christian, I believe that one of our duties is to "spread the word". But I also understand that this amazing person is my friend, and I have to accept her for who she is... and not pressure her into anything. Believe it or not, pressuring people into religion is not a good idead. People's beliefs need to be respected, you need to draw a line. If someone came up to you and started criticizing Catholics and their beliefs, im pretty sure you'd be upset. Please accept her(them) for the amazing young ladie(s)/gent(s)that they are! I'll be praying for you

I have a different religion than most people in my town.I don't feel like disclosing which because I have been attacked because of my beliefs before. Many of my friend are catholics and they don't always understand me and make stereo typical jokes about people from my group or try and convert me. You need to understand that trying to persuade people to your beliefs once they've made it clear they're not budging. Sometimes when you try to sway people you hurt them.Religion is a sensitive topic no one can win so it's best to avoid it.

Oh, I am Catholic and this made me uncomfortable.
Freedom of religion babe! You can't make them just "believe in their maker"
If you really are friends with them, then you accept that they aren't necessarily the same religion as you. My best friend is Muslim, I have many close Jewish friends, and one of my besties is converting to Buddhism.
