womanholdingbibleDear Te-Erika,

I keep meeting women who don’t agree with my beliefs. In my mind one of the criteria for dating women is how would they react to me not being a Christian. Some years back, I got reacquainted with an ex from back in Jersey. Her religious constitution was like mine; neither of us could care less. Well, when we picked up where we left off, it was a good convo and she shared that she attends church which was no big deal. I had no clue really regarding Pentecostal followers. I decided to explain my beliefs as diplomatically as possible, having left that off the table from my end. She went fire and brimstone ballistic and hit me with the 2×4 of the Lord! LOL She would not take any of my calls after that. I have spoken to her since then but you best believe I closed that proverbial friendship door.

My REPLY:

You are not under any obligation to share or convince anyone to agree with your beliefs. Your beliefs are your own choices. Maybe you think you need someone to agree with you but you shouldn’t. You don’t need validation for your choices to be correct. You are your own authority. Your beliefs are correct because you decide they are.

Let your light shine without having to preach or get someone to believe with you. Let them have to come ask you, “Why are you such a good person?”

Even then, you can just say, “I live this way because I want to.”

Stop worrying about if they will accept you. Those who are truly at peace with their beliefs will be able to love someone who does not agree. Anyone who judges or condemns you because you have different beliefs does so because they feel judged and condemned by their own belief system.

Go out and meet women and be good to them. If they want to run away, allow it. If they want to stay, allow that. The best way to hold on to someone is to be willing to let them go.
