  • Continued prayer. Lead by example but don't shove it in his face. He has said he is not interest. You have planted the seed, your job is done.

  • You dont. You cannot force someone to buy into your religion....its not what Christ had in mind, thats more what greedy church leaders back in the day had in mind.

    So get off your high horse and put your misplaced and misguided fakey fear away and let your father believe what he believes because its HIS path and HIS spirituality NOT yours.

  • Stop worrying about something you can't change and live your life.

  • You don't. You let him live his life as he sees fit. He is not harming anyone else.
    Goddess... if I posted about converting my dad from Christianity to Kemetic Orthodoxy, you would give me advice on how to do it?

  • I was trying to make a point... smh.
    And, within my path. trying to convert a person is a no no.

    Answer by Kaelansmom at 5:18 AM on Jun. 21, 2011

  • I agree with Kaelansmom. You can't force someone to believe as you do, whether through actions or prayer. Would you change religions simply because someone you loved believed you were wrong in your faith? Probably not.

  • Your dad is old enough to make his own choices. Stop trying to interfere in his free will.

  • Just worry about this life with your Dad and let it be- you don't want to waste what time you have with him now-

    Answer by soyousay at 9:37 AM on Jun. 21, 2011

  • If I were you I would focus on the time I have with him now and not worry about it.

  • is that a real question? or are you trying to make a point that you can't convert someone...
