Krew - Unless someone else would care to make the thread? I can make the new one soon.
Babsa - I can look at it as both a father and a son, so my thoughts: As a father I think it would be wise to honor your father's wishes and not tell him one thing and do another. The dishonesty in that regard would be more hurtful in the end. Plus he has the advantage of having made mistakes and learned from them.
As a young man: It isn't your fault that he didn't take you to church more often when you were younger and the feeling of being pressured to do so now would make me feel like I had to somehow make up for his mistake if I was in a similar situation.
Going to Church and reading the bible won't make you a Christian, all it would do is expose you to Christian (hopefully
) and biblical teachings. Unless you act upon those teachings you will continue to have no/little faith. I suspect, but don't know, that your father already knows or suspects that your faith is lacking (for lack of a better word) and he is only trying to encourage you to re-new/build upon the faith he wishes you to share with him. But I don't know the full details and that can only be speculation.
I hope that helps, and if I'm off base I apologize. I believe open and honest lines of communication are the best policy. As difficult as they may be, the results of less than honest are much more destructive.
