Religion and Friendship

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Being a true friend is helping another person to discover his own path. "You can't teach a person anything. You can only help him discover what is in himself."

A religious mind will try to make that person like onself.

When Jesus encounted the woman who was caught in adultery, he did not try to "convert" her to a religion. He merely said, "neither do I condemn you. Go and sin and more." In effect, he was telling her to find that part inside her that calls her to the higher way.
