I hope my reply finds you in good spirits. I too was against Christianity. It seemed to be the root of so much evil. Only recently did I suddenly receive the revelation that it was humans (and Satan's influence) not God who did all these hate filled things. Christ teaches love and forgiveness. Man who became corrupt can twist religion to serve his own purposes of greed and lust. So many evil things are done in the name of God but God Himself does not do them or sanction them.
I was lost for most of my life because I did not understand the difference. If your friend can see that God WANTS us to choose, and sometimes that choice is made very, very difficult maybe he will see the way. It is a challenge for sure! I used to think that faith was something you had or did not have and you couldn't force it to come but I felt a tiny spark and I read and I prayed for it to grow.
I will pray for him, as others have prayed for me.
