Long story short this particular person does not like my beliefs and is making all attempts to sever the relationship between my gf and I.

That's too bad. Tell this person that you believe what you believe and your relationship is your business.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

I can't post what I think you should tell that person, but I think you can come up with a something appropriate.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Lord have mercy!

Is your GF "charismatic"?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

If there is one thing I can not stand it is people who try to break up other people's relationships. I mean what is the point? Are they jealous? Do they seriously think that they are so special that the other person should be with them instead of a person they disagree with? I have never been able to stand people like that.

Lord, have mercy.

I am praying that this situation turns out for the better, whatever that may be.
