if you are a christian, who speaks openly and often about your God, to whomever you meet- Would you continue a friendship when you found out that someone you met and liked was an atheist?
If you had automatically assumed they were christian as well, and they never indicated otherwise, but then you found out they were an atheist, would you continue with the friendship?
I recently met another mom who often speaks of her faith in her life. (NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME!! I totally respect her) I really like her, and am a tiny bit nervous of her finding out that I am not in fact, a Chrsitian as herself. I wouldn't want her to think I am an "immoral, evil, satan worshipper" as so many people here have mistakenly believed.
As a christian, would you continue the friendship?

that's hard, because according to your religion, you're supposed to close your door to anyone who denounces Christ, but at the same time, it's you mission to convert people... maybe have a second look at Christianity and all of it's double standards and contradictions. seriously, i'm not trying to insult you, and i'm not an atheist. i believe in God the Almighty, and Jesus the prophet. but have you actually read the bible, cover to cover? if you're looking for answers in that book, it's no wonder you're so confused!

This very thing happened to me at work. I was great friends with this woman- we always took our breaks together and joked around on the job. AND THEN the subject of God came up and when I told her I was an Atheist, she thought I was joking. When she realized I wasn't, she got really disgusted and never talked to me ever after that.
