Kay. I like having fun and meeting people but here are some problems:
I’ve had lots of folks tell me that a True Christian ™ will always end up alone and without any friends since friends only serve to corrupt and lead astray. Likewise, they’ve told me that a True Christian shouldn’t enjoy dating – it should be to check for compatibility for marriage and that you shouldn’t date a woman you aren’t prepared to marry. Likewise, leisure time should be spent in prayer or in service to the community. Laughter and frivolity are frowned upon because those who laugh now will cry at the coming of the Kingdom and those who cry now will laugh.
I find it difficult to believe that following Christ means I have to be miserable as fuck my entire life and act like a complete jackass to everyone I meet. I find it hard to accept that I shouldn’t enjoy my life.
