So a lot of mine and my husband's family claim to be Christians but def. don't walk the walk or talk the talk of true Christ-likeness and when my husband and I make choices to not do things that Jesus wouldn't approve of, we catch so much stuff. For ex: my husband stays faithful to me and I to him by changing the channel when something "bad' comes on and we catch so many rude comments from our family for not watching that stuff. My brothers give my husband a hard time because he doesn't want to drink (I know the Bible says it's ok to drink a little but neither of us want to drink at all so that the temptation of relying on alcohol doesn't get put in our paths) and my brothers say I'm a "bad word" cause I don't let my husband do anything...which isn't true. He chooses not to do the things that they want to do. I really wanna grow in my walk with God and grow to be a spiritual Hercules, I just don't know how to deal with family members (seems to be all of em) that cut you down for wanting to grow. How do you guys handle it?
