I have a friend who is asking questions about Christianity. She is in a bad situation, and at the end of her tether. What should I say to her?

Depends on the questions she is asking. Remember, WWJD? He wouldn't condemn - ever - nor would he make her feel worse. He would love her and guide her into understanding of His salvation. You should so the same.

This was one of the last posts from Donna2277. I really miss this Lady. If anyone out there has heard from her, would you please let me know. I reread many of her posts tonight. She was correct about the walking wounded.

Donna I understand your discouragement. You are a light in a dark place, however without that light the darkness is absolute. I will miss your post & so will the ones who are helped by your gentle quiet spirit. This is you, never forget it. It is the Fathers blessing through you to all you come in contact with. Stay sweet, your prayers have been heard & answered, receive the answer with complete confidence. The hairs on your head are numbered, you are one of a kind. Be blessed

Donna2277 - Are you really going? I sure hope not.

Just listen to her,let her vent be her sounding board she is speaking from a wounded place right now. Answer w/wisdom, truth- but covered w/much love. Pray and fast for her if U can fast- some can not due to an illness. God is big enough to handle her anger, questions all of it. He does not need a defense lawyer.

Joseph --Thanks. it's the way I USED to be. But reading these blogs every day....the bitterness the's rubbing off. I've started to become that way myself. Am leavin CN. Want to get back to what's really important. Please pray for me, if you think of it.
---Donna2277 on 11/6/06

I have not heard from her since I spoke to her by phone last Thursday. Please pray for her, that something that I say may have helped her onto the right path. She lives far from me.

I will let you know when I hear anything. Thanks all for your help - for now.

Well said Donna2277. Now this is the Donna I remember from the first time I saw your name here. Gentle, caring, compassion, loving, understanding and patient. You have a marvelous way of tenderly yet directly articulating your thoughts. God Bless. This statement I believe is profound because trust is vital to ministry. "Don't share information about her problems unless you feel someone is in serious danger" Amen.

#1 Listening is SO important in a situation like this. She won't listen..or even HEAR..what you say, if you haven't listened to what she says with 100% of your attention. Ask God what scriptures would speak to her needs. Does she feel trapped? Lk4:1819,frightened?-Ps 34:15, worried?-Lk 12:29,31 feeling guilty? Ti 3:5-6 Rom 6:23 Is 1:18, Overwhelmed? Mt 11:28. Give her only 2 or 3 verses...any word to spark HOPE. Then you can use ANY verse she responds to as a springboard to the Gospel!

#2 Avoid long discussions about WHY God allows bad things or if there are contradictions in the Bible. Answer briefly then get back to HER needs. If you can't give an answer because you don't know, promise to look for an answer for her. Don't be pushy.. but stay available. Pray for her any time you are with her. Don't share information about her problems unless you feel someone is in serious danger. If you feel another person should help, a professional perhaps, don't call on one without her permission.
---Donna2277 on 11/3/06

Answer each of her questions as they come. Then listen. Prayer and fasting will help you respond to her questions with Godly wisdom. The Holy Spirit will help you both.

Tell her she needs to meet your friend Jesus. Tell her that Jesus cares so much about her that he sent you her way to tell her about Him and the depth of His love for her. Tell her to come to Jesus, to invite Him into her life and be Lord and Savior of her life.

Offer a prayer for her & sit with her (or talk via phone)use the bible, but do not force anything on anybody. You can find all the answeres you need in the bible.
