Pet peeve: "you know deep down you still believe..."

"You know deep down you still believe in God."

"You still know that God exists."

These statements get on my nerves. Mostly because one just got thrown at me. If you keep up with my posts, you may remember a while back that I mentioned one of my friends removed me from her Facebook and decided we were no longer allowed to be friends, etc, etc. Well I woke up this morning, checked my email, and found a Facebook message from her. It was a little apologetic, but not very much. She said we could be friends again if I wanted to keep in touch with her (gee, thanks).

She said "you know deep down you can't deny the fact that God exists," and she also said that since I know the truth, I'll be responsible before the Lord.

Okay, why can't people just let me make my own damn decisions? I'm so sick of people assuming that I'm an atheist because of my boyfriend, or because I'm "a follower," or because I just wanted to rock the boat.

If I still believed in God, I would still be a Christian. I thought this would be obvious, but apparently it's not.

But I think the thing that most annoyed me about this message is that she claimed to know exactly what I was thinking. You do not know what's going on up in my mind. That's why it's MY mind, and not yours.

Assuming makes an ass of you and I!

I'm trying to save my relationship with this girl because we were friends for such a long time, but... I really don't think that's gonna be an option.
