    Prayer for family. A question.

    I honestly do pray that my family will see the truth. That they may have hearts of flesh instead of stone.

    I often wonder how I could start a dialouge with my brothers. They can both be rather trollish at times. Their theology is rather bad. They advocate subjective morality at times. How can I talk to them? How can anyone talk to them? I know it is possible. It happened to me.

    Source: Luke 12:11-12

    11 “Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. 12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”

    Pray about it, study apologetics, but don't try to imagine what you'll say; just listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Humility tends to work much better than overwhelming argument.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    never give up. I didn't become a Christian till I was 40. and as I look back a lot of the reason I did was that I had some good Christians in my life. I looked up to them and their character and unconsciously I tried to be like them even while I sometimes mocked them for being "goody-two-shoes". So even if you can't reach them directly, be a good example for them. Even if they don't acknowledge it, they will be impressed by your character and integrity and associate it with being a Christian.

  5. Amen Jedidiah, TheWall amen'd this post.
