I am sending my 12 year old child to Catholic Sunday School. I got a lot out of Catholic Sunday School. I have recently reverted to Catholicism. I love it. However, for the past 33 years I have been attending Protestant Evangelical Churches. For the most part, I loved those churches too. But now I feel I am home again. I believe Catholicism is a much deeper faith.
But I cannot stop wondering if I am doing the right thing by putting my child in Catholic Sunday School. On the one hand, the Sunday School Classes at the Evangelical Churches did not have much substance. It turns out she/he was not going to any Sunday School after a while, and was not getting any religious education. That is why I took this step. But I have not taken the time to thoroughly study the doctrinal differences between Born Again Protestantism and Catholicism. I do know the fundamental differences. I will start studying in-depth this week.
I teach my child that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World and that we must pray to Him for Salvation. We must repent of our sins and lead good lives. This is where I get troubled. For the Evangelicals teach is it by faith alone lest no man boast. I guess this is what is troubling me.
