So I was at dinner tonight with some dear Protestant sisters , and we started talking about faith .
Long story short ( 4 hours later short ) I was being attacked for my Catholic faith, and being shot at constantly with questions on my beliefs-
As a 33 year old cradle catholic , I was able to stand my ground, but I also have room for improvement when it comes to returning fire , ha!
Here’s what I need help with - and please remember I will be bringing these answers back to my Protestant sisters -
Argument from them-
1-The Eucharist is not real -
I found enough bible verses to inialate that statement-
2- Every sin we commit is the same in God’s eyes. Saying a curse word is the same as murdering someone in God’s eyes ??? ( Lord have mercy)
3- Baptism is just tradition -
4- As long as we are “saved” we go to heaven if we believe in God and have asked forgiveness . It doesn’t matter what we have done as long as we are sorry. There is no purgatory - there is only heaven and hell.
5- It says no where in the Bible that you have to go to church. You don’t have to go to church on Sunday to keep Holy the Lord’s day.
6- how do Catholics prove Eucharistic miracles , Mary appearing , etc .
7- Mary was NOT Without sin only Jesus was. She was blessed and God found favor in her but she was just an ordinary girl.
8- the Bible says we are all saints ? Period?? She sent this to me after dinner . IMG_0610.jpeg
9- There is no such thing as mortal and venial sin.
Ok my dear brothers and sisters-
Send me my ammunition!!!
