So, I am seeing in these forums, and in my own experiences that the following seems to occur.
A man/Women will come up to a Catholic and say, You know, The Catholic church is Evil and Bad. Nothing Good came out of it.
A Catholic Strong in his/Her faith will defend, but usually to no avail.
Then something Odd happens
If the accuser is generally a charitable person as well as someone the strong Catholic see on a regular basis, over time, the accuser will say, well, I believe you are saved as you have the right love for Christ, But the Catholic Church is still Wrong…
And thus, the Contradiction: At the Meta level, they are willing to defend to the death that the Catholic Church is a flawed belief system. However, on the Micro level, it seems that humble, true faithful Catholics are always seen as true Christians by the same individual.
And so the question arises. How is it that if the Catholic Church has such a flawed interpretation of Christ, that on the individual level, those that truly adhere to what it teaches are almost always considered some of the strongest Christians by the very person making the accusation?
