Are we Catholic or Christian?


I have friends of different religions, and I am often stunned to hear their reply when we are discussing religion, that you are catholic but not a christian. I do not understand their response, they are very religious as I, and I am often confused at their response to being catholic. My friends were raised in a penecostal home when they were younger, but have both gone separate ways from their roots, but both continue to go to church, one to a baptist, and the other to a non denominational church. Please help clear up this delima! Thank you and God Bless!:slight_smile:
