My xtain friend has cancer
I didn't know how to file this post but maybe this is good enough. I have a friend that is xtian. She has allowed me to debate her on religion and has actually agreed to a lot but still holds on to the bible for a source of morality and comfort in her life. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer a couple of months ago. She is undergoing chemo right now and I am going to visit with her tonight. Btw, she is very intelligent and a cool person who believes everyone should be able to think what they want.
This brings me to my dilemma. She is sure that there is an afterlife. I am going to indulge her. I was just wondering how anyone else might feel about a situation like this. I mean I want to be real with her but if it makes her feel safer and not as scared, it's the right thing to do...also she is in her late 20s and I am scared for her too as she is a good friend of mine. I don't think she is on her deathbed yet. I hope she comes out of this the winner. (Then maybe we can go back to our friendly debates).
