Right now I’m in RCIA. I intend to join the Catholic Church next year. This is something I’m not taking lightly. I pray daily and ready daily about the Church and her beliefs. In fact, everything I learn only deepens my belief that I’m making the right decision.
Here is my question/challenge: can I be convinced to not join the Church? I know this question depends greatly on me.
In other words, what are the things hardest to swallow about the Church? Or for you Catholics, have you learned something and just been like, “Whoa, I don’t like that”?
I honestly don’t think it’s possible, but I want to know. For example, when I was joining a baptistish church it would have been very, very to convince me to not join had someone showed me some simple verses such as John 3:5 (never seems to get mentioned by people who think baptism isn’t necessary for salvation).
It might be worth mentioning I’m a very logical person, or at least like to think of myself as such. I’m thoroughly enjoying Frank Sheed’s Theology and Sanity. Any argument to convince me to not join will have to be very well reasoned.
