Help Me: Im 20 years old & my parents forcing me to go to church?As I sit here writing this no one in my family is talking to me nor have they spoken to me for the past three days. Here is my story:sorry it's long.
I came home for spring break form college and didn't go to church with
my family on Easter Sunday (I'm have doubts about organized religion) so this Sunday I didn't go neither so my parents sat my family down to have a "prayer meeting" they basically said that if I kept on this pattern
I was destined for Hell.
Then my dad proceeds to give my 18 year old sister 100 dollars for "good Christian" behavior because she goes but I don't. And told me I should be more like her. my sister just lost credit in her senior calculus class
because she never goes and when she does she's late by 15 minutes
her report card came in the mail on friday and she has yet to show it to them I found it in the trash she failed most of her classes (even gym)
and she never had a job(doesn't want one unless it's Special & she can
make her own hours) plus she lied to my parents about getting her
acceptance letter from a college when the truth is she didn't even
apply.(so basically there rewarding her for lying and bad grades)

Me on the other hand I'm a biology major planing to go to medical
school and I work and pay for everything for myself plus my grades are
good and I play soccer (which helped me pay for most if my
tuition)and I shadow Doctors on my free time at the university hospital
in Chicago. My dad told me that even with all my education it means
nothing if I don't go to church I still believe in God but don't want to be Baptist or follow their practices.
I wanted to come home this summer and work plus take classes online through my college so I can start paying my student loan(5000) but I
already brought my air plane tickets (I'm originally from new jersey but
i go to college in chicago) I have no place else to stay but with my
parents for the summer.(which they threaten to kick me out if I don't start going) how can I make them understand I'm not interested In
church at the moment and that i am an adult -for God's sake im going to be some body's Doctor someday you would think they would trust me to make my own choices-I know if I go I'm going to be mad about it
and it's going to show. I'm not good at hiding my feelings when I feel strongly about something.
And my sister was loving ever second of this-please no rude comments
