  • Do what you feel you need to do. Spirituality is a personal walk. I know he loves you and will support your decision

  • I would just go anyways. Just don't push it on him unless he is open to it.

  • well i know he is not into it at all....we've been together for 8 years this month....we are not married but might as well be...but obviously this is a sin in the eyes of the lord.....we don't plan to get married for financial reasons but i don't plan on leaving him either....i'm not sure what the church will think of this...

  • Go alone and leave him be. Don't worry what the "church" says about your situation, it is my opinion religion is YOUR personal relationship with G-d, not the church or the congregation if they aren't supportive.

  • i wouldn't worry what the church thought. you go ahead to church services, if that's what you're feeling led to do. you can strenghten your own relationship with God, and fellow believers can pray for you and help support you. you may even find that you are not the only one(gasp!) who's partner isn't a believer. there are plenty of 'singles' in church, who happen to have partners. you're attending church should be for you; if you want to go, don't let someone else keep you from it. if he truly loves you, he won't mind. its a 2-way street.

  • you can't only give some parts to the Lord and sin in other areas. I will pray that you would be changed completly. Surrender to Him and pray for your bf.

  • You each respect the other's beliefs. You can go to church, he doesn't have to. Easy enough.
