I think I worry too much about a person close to me that seem to be backsliding and I can't do anything about it, I do pray and nothing much seems to be happening, so what is the best attitude to have? It bothers me because their behaviour is very closed off to the the things of God and they obssess about the world and are very self absorbed and I just feel I can't be real/true friends with them. The Bible says friendship with the world is emnity with God, so when one friend starts obssessing over worldly things I don't know what to do, I have kind of distanced myself and not joined in with their activities and tried to keep mentioning God but I am just feeling tired of the joking around over things that aren't really funny, and the focus on themselves and their appetites all the time. It made me wonder are they really saved because they don't act like it, and aren't serious about God only at times when they want something. Many times I had thought it would be easier if I dropped this friend and she found someone she had more in common with and did the things she wanted to do instead of me, because at times I've felt like she has used me and put me through the wringer, and even put me in temptations way without even realising it. Just because she indulges she kind of expects me to as well to feel better about herself? After a time I realised this friend had all the symptoms of binge eating but obviously thinks I don't know about it. It's kind of like trying to being friends with an alcoholic - but with alchoholics/addicts/drunkards you get them into rehab but I don't know what you do with people that have eating disorders. Does the bible say anything about that and is there any hope she will stop overeating or do I just have to think of something to say when she asks 'have I put on weight?' all the time. I don't know I am not a scale. Or do I say I don't care how much you weigh you're my friend'. or something along those lines. Is gluttony a serious sin because I'm feeling a bit repulsed by it now. Apparently binge eaters eat at nighttime when nobody is looking and they hoard junkfood. I only see her during the day and she doesn't eat much when I'm with her but she's always talking about food and obssessing about diet, but as far as I know gains weight no matter how much exercise she does, and she goes to the gym all the time so it must be she's eating at night time?? I don't want to meddle with her relationship with God but it seems like its not really happening, her mind isn't on Him it's always on her stomach. I'm afraid she might end up in hospital again when all this overeating is going to catch up with her but if she won't listen to her mum who's concerned about her health she won't listen to me. I feel like I can no longer handle it when she lusts after a coffee and cake and uses me to get what she wants. I am sure having 14 dental fillings is not really normal but she's not quitting. She can quit cigarettes but sugar is another matter.
