I honestly feel sorry for the man...I wouldn't want to be in his shoes, spending my life attacking Jesus' Church, His mother, the Sacraments... :(
I totally agree! However, I wonder if Jesus will have mercy on such people if they do it out of total ignorance like most people who believe what Chick tracts teach do. I am inclined to believe that Jesus will be merciful to those who attack the Church in total ignorance. But still, I wouldn't want to be that person on judgment day. I mean, I'm sure that even though Jesus may be merciful to such a person that He would still have harsh words to such a person who attacked His Church, His Mother, and the Sacraments and such. If such a person was forgiven of their sin of attacking His Church and His mother and the Sacraments, they'd probably spend a lot of time in Purgatory for having done so. Keep in mind that this is all speculation on my part and I honestly don't know how God will deal with those who attack His Church, His mother, and the Sacraments.
That said, mention to this man how Chick Tracts are so wrong. Show him an example *of a few things on where Chick tracts get things wrong and offer evidence of how they got this wrong. In other words, *offer proof! Proof would not be hard to come by. Just show them an article, quote from an encyclical, quote from New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia, or a Catholic Answers tract as an example. It is up to this man whether or not he accepts the truth once you present it to him. If he rejects the truth, he will be held responsible when he comes before the Judge of all the earth.
It is your job to defend the Church to the best of your ability in as charitable a manner as possible. It his job to take a look at your claims and decide for himself whether he will accept or reject the truth. So don't feel bad if he rejects it.
May God truly bless you for your efforts. :thumbsup:
