Two of my friends who don’t know one another, one belongs to a mega church and the other to an Open Bible church and both have reached similar beliefs, however they contradict what most protestants believe. Also the members of their churches seem to agree with their beliefs.
When my one friend’s father passed away they prayed to him to have God bring two transplants for her youngest brother who would die soon without them. Well within a couple of weeks the needed organs were transplanted. She believes that her father asked God to save her brother. Although the church is against Catholics praying to those saints or others who have died.
My other friend who belongs to the mega church is very anti catholic and doesn’t believe in praying/asking the saints to pray for us and especially any apparitions of the BVM or any saint. However, when her husband died her friend called her to say she saw the husband riding in a chariot at least twice. Than recently her son saw his father sitting on a branch of a tree and spoke to him. Third a week ago in church while watching her cousin the pastor on stage, instead of him she saw her husband and the pastor’s wife told her that she was all aglow and what happened. I really don’t understand how they can contradict their own beliefs and seem to not be aware that what they are seeing or what is happening is a Catholic belief and they are going against their own doctrines.
Of course I am glad that God has chosen to reveal to them the truth of the faith, even if they don’t understand that what has happened is a Catholic belief. But would like to have some protestants explain to me how this could be according to what they are taught. Both are of sound mind and one often casts the Devil out if she feels the need.
Yours in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
