she was brainwashed by a friend that said she needed to be savedVisitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
I am currently going through a breakup at the current time. After 2 years she became a "born-again" Christian, in which case makes it worse. Even after knowing the real her for 2 wonderful years of being together, before she was ever suckered into this, and also having a very strong relationship, and having the same beliefs, she was brainwashed by a friend that said she needed to be saved. "Saved by what?" I ask myself. Her individuality, or from society? To me religion is a belief, and not a solution to one's problems. And yet, it shouldn't surpass one's love for themselves. In my belief, God would never allow that to happen to someone. Some people need to wake up and see the real world and not confine themselves to just religion. She put God in front of herself and our relationship and also everything else that she cares for.It kinda takes away one person's individuality in my opinion. How can you love anyone or anything, including God, without loving yourself first? How do you deal with such a situation anyways?
As I understand it, "saved" means that you have accepted Jesus into your heart and therefor are saved from eternal damnation (i.e. hell). You also are expected to live your life in accordance with Jesus's believes.
The rest of your question would require the talents of a theologian, which I am not. Suggest you contact your minister or her's for more info.
Good luck with your situation!
