Hi Matthew, I recently joined RZIM connect and was so amazed by this platform full of deep and very respectful discussion, especially we get the chance to ask our own questions and get very thoughtful answers. I feel so blessed !!!
Before I ask my real question, I am just wondering whether you have been to China ? The introduction mentioned you have been to Asia, so I am just curious Me and my son love Japanese noodle and Sushi
Okay, now real question. I have a very close high school friend back in China, who got very sick in college. Modern medicine didn’t help at all, then she turned to other ways. Then she found Indian “Sahaja Yoga”. Following their physical and also spiritual practice, she miraculously got cured ! She told me she would never leave the “mother”—-the founder of “Sahaja Yoga”
I have been spreading Gospel through articles and podcasts to thousands of people in China for many years. But she is the one that I care so much but I even dare not talk to her about religion issues. I am sure she sees all the materials I have shared and I know she is still perusing her way through social media posts. She told me once that we should not mention religious stuff when we talk, just let it be.
My biggest concern is her health. I know that sickness and the great pain almost drove her crazy, and almost caused suicide( according to her description) . And I know one reason she would never leave the “mother” is the fear that it would come back if she “betrays”.
I know our Lord is BIGGER, I know I should not have the fear, I know the eternal life with God is definitely much much more important than the short lifespan on earth. But, I think only a mature Christian who is sure about the truth and the way and the life would be able to say “okay, if I will be sick for the rest of my life, but I still have God, it’s fine.” I am afraid, if with my help she comes to Jesus, and then she gets sick again, and her husband and her son and all the other family members will blame me…and she doesn’t want to talk about it anyway…
Should I just pray for her and leave her alone as she requires ? Or do you have other suggestions? (After typing these words, I realized I shouldn’t be afraid of the blames, if that’s the cross I need to carry, right ? But what about “leave me alone” part?)
Thank you very much !!!
