Perhaps, but perhaps he is poking my conscience not to attend. I have to examine both possibilities, but my conscience seems to be pointing the opposite way.
I respect my wife, and her families church and their continuing to be Protestant. Does not going to a family member’s Protestant Church amount to disrespect in any case?
The reason not for going is not that I think I will become Protestant if I go, or my wife will become Protestant again, but that we as Catholics have no business attending a service for the sole purpose of greeting people, when we are both uninterested in the sermon and service.
In the end, only me and God know my heart, conscience, because those are things only a person can know. To be frank, you don’t know my heart or conscience, so you are better off not making judgement on it, because what you said was wrong about me. Don’t take me saying that as being coldhearted either, it is just the facts.
I have been to her church, many times, some have said and my conscience has said too many times, more than I can count.
