OK so I’ve been emailing this guy on Yahoo!Answers inthe religion&Spirituality sect. He’s anti Catholics, and doesn’t think Catholcis are Christians. I asked him how we weren’t, because we accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and redeemer of the world, and followed his word.
He said because we were pharasees becuase we di donie thing when the bible says another… I said that there wasnt a single cayholic Doctrine that contradicted sacred scripture and I said if he thought there was one to tell me and I could probaly explain how it really didn’t. And he replied
“well i just got out of an argument with a catholic saying mary is mother of the Trinity, if ur not a catohlic you go to hell, and many other things…”
I didn’t really believe a Catholic would say that, but I pretended I did and replied to him
" that “Catholic” was very misinformed than. That is NOT what we believe, I apologize for their ignorance.
Mary is on the other hand often referred to as “Daughter of the Father, Mother of the Son, and Spouse to The Holy Spirit”
But "mother of the trinity is blasphemy to the name of God.
Secondly, that is also not what we believe. We believe Catholicsim is the only real truth, and that it is the church that God intends for us to be apart of, but it isn’t the *only path to heaven. Of course we do believe everyone in heaven will be Catholic, but that they’ll become Catholics after purgatory and when they’ve recieved the truth in Heaven(this probably just confused you though, but it’s teh best I could explain.)
What else did tehy lie about!!! Please excuse them, they are mistaken!"
"how are Catholics not Christians?
Message: oh after me and my friend (she calls us protestants but we have no denomination) told her a short testimony she still says ur not Christina until ur catholic…
anyway purgatory isn’t Biblical. it may be found in one of those 7 extra books but it’s a lie. we are made perfect in the blood of lamb. there is no more cleansing. Jesus is all we need. our flesh rots but spirit is made perfect in him"
so I said " “purgatory isn’t biblical”, oh but isn’t it? it is found throughout the new testament." then I gave him the scriptures about purgatory they haev listed at this site askacatholic.com/holyquotes/documents/_all_catholic_verses.htm#purgatory
and I explained how the word purgatory wasn’t in teh bible, but neitehr was trinity, but the concepts were.
He hasn’t responded yet. Do yall think I’ve handld it well? I don’t know whether I should give up on trying to explain to him, but at the same time, I feel if he did understand, he would realize teh Catholic church is the truth(That’s what happened to me, I was fed by all those anti catholic myths by my family and friends, until I learned the truth.)
SO what do you guys think?
Thanks, Oh and sorry if this is the wrong forum& about any typos(I just got this laptop for Christmas and I can’t type well on the keybpard lol)
