Recently, my mother requested that I go onto Amazon and purchase a book for her, using her account, because she was busy. When I asked her what the book was called, she replied, “Threads: The Reincarnation of Anne Boleyn.”
Now, as those of you who have seen my earliest threads probably know, my parents, due to a series of events which, if explained, would make my post incredibly long, have begun to believe in New Age doctrines such as reincarnation, communication with spirits through mediums, and the like. However, they believe that they are still perfectly Catholic/Christian and silence me whenever I attempt to explain to tem that the opposite is, in fact, true.
Upon finding the book, I asked my mother to come over to confirm that the one which I was about to buy was the one which she wanted. She confirmed this, and I became very sad to discover that this was another New Age book. She noticed, and warned me to “not judge” and to “keep my opinion to myself.” I said, “It’s not just my opinion. It’s stated clearly [in the Bible]. It’s not a matter of interpretation.” She didn’t respond, and I said, “‘It is appointed for mortals to die once, and after that the judgment.’ Hebrews 9:27.”
Did I violate the Fourth Commandment by doing this?
