I have a dear friend who, in my opinion (which really is presumptuous of me), needs God badly. She is going through some really tough times, and it would be excellent if I could help her find her God. But how do I do that? Or should I? Should I wait?...I should say that her parents are Christian, and have rubbed their religion in her face all her life!
I am trying to be a good example, and I do pray all the time for her.
So, how do you approach others about the LOA, God, and all things spiritual?
Thanks in advance!
Blessings and Much Love to all Inward Questors, Jaianniah

Since I don't know the specific, I cannot be specific. You could tell her something like, "Have you noticed that when you think this way (be specific to the situation, like negative, etc...) you find more people and events that match that thinking? " (Give examples that are pertinent to the situation.) Tell her how your friend noticed that you were thinking in a negative pattern and your life experiences matched the negative thinking. Then your friend told you how to change your thinking to change your life experiences and then tell her the results.
Have you ever noticed that if you ore someone close to you gets a new car, new used car, then you start noticing more cars just like it? Like if you get a blue toyota corolla, you start seeing tons of blue toyota corollas everywhere you look.

Well, do you want her to find her own beliefs or adopt yours?
Introduce her to herself then when she finds herself she finds God. Let her begin her journey within and this path is for her to discover. Point her in the direction of self.
I wish it was as easy as handing someone a pamphlet :)

most do not need to be shown, When you are living correctly they will see the progress and wonder how you dd it, THEN you share ! If you try to tell them advice or show them it is fine BUt just like my source says" "you must not try to change ones ways, you will never change ones mind as they cannot yours, even if it is done with "respesct", when you try to change ones heart you are trying to change all that they are, even if you are trying to "better them", you are only realy enslaving them, you are making them a slave to what they are not truly ready for ,and if you love and respect them,you will not do this" Treb Bor yit-Ne
a person must be who and what THEY are. It is in our nature to want to see someone we love as happy as we feel in the beliefs we have come to embrace. BUT not evryone will be happy with the same beliefs that have made us that way! i know what you mean and i used to try to help my wife understand but now that i understand tryng to change her belifefs are the same as tryng to change her. in the past few years she has seen the true changes i have been through and knows WHY i changed. She has addopted the parts of my beliefs that resonate with her and i never had to "lecture, or beg" her to do it. We both are much happeir for this!

The worlds full of various organisations who are more than eager to introduce people to their god and their belief system.
Most people are fed up with empty doctrine and mis interpretation of the so called facts.
Ask yourself this,would so many people still be attracted to Jesus Christ if He had failed to turn water into wine,failed to raise the dead,failed to provide for His team,failed to rise again?
Results,what works,what improves your lot,what adds value to your life.
You cant give what you havnt got.
Learn to demonstarte the Father within,learn to allow His manifestation.
You then wont be introducing,youll be fighting them off!
Jesus gave people something they couldnt get anywhere else.
They found it within themselves,and the people we want to introduce have a within.

every one is spiritual in essance! the cause of it why your friend went away from it is religion! so onless she see it and accept it there is not much to do everything happen when it is the time for it to happen do not force the issue!
