My nephew is a member of Calvary Chapel and has been told some incorrect things about the Catholic Church.
He visited recently and stated that Catholics put Mary above Jesus. I said no we don’t. He said yes they do.
I said, I’m a Catholic, we don’t do that.
There are former Catholics in his congregation and I guess they just spew whatever inaccuracies they wish.
I’m glad he’s found Jesus but I do have an issue with what he has been told by former Catholics and by what they seem to teach in general.
My understanding is that they teach the Bible, book by book, verse by verse. Basically they don’t have a worship service, they have a Bible study.
I’m guessing they are confusing that with worship. I didn’t say that we worship God and leave Bible study for other times but I will in the future.
Guess my question is: How do I gently teach him without antagonizing him? I am an excitable person and need to be calmer when discussing these issues. So any prayers would be appreciated.
