I’ve only been a Christian for about 1-1/2 yrs. I’m 31 yrs old and my wife is 27. I have always believed in Jesus but never truley accepted him as my savior untill I was almost 30. My wife of 6 mo was the one who witnessed to me and led me to Christianity. She has been a life long Evangelical Protestant. We go to a very upbeat church - contemporary worship music, people praying out loud, dancing and raising hands. Lately I’ve felt the need to research and study the Catholic Faith, I think mostly because I’ve also been studying Irish history more indepth (were both of strong Irish backgrounds). This curiousity of the faith has turned into a real desire to know and understand it. My wife has formed very strong feelings against the Catholic Church’s beliefs, but as for me, I am not bias. All I’ve known since my coming to Christ is Non-Denominational Protestantism and I want to know why so many non-Catholics are against the faith. Since I’ve began to study the faith I’ve learned alot, and for some reason find myself defending Catholicism when in debates with my wife. I feel drawn to it very much so. I can see myself becoming Catholic in the future, and the deeper I dig into the Faith the more I can see it happening. It worries me though what my wife will think. I don’t want to be a bad leader by separating our beliefs but at the same time I feel my relationship with Jesus will grow stronger by converting. I know God is most important and is the center of our relationship but I know my wifes opinions toward the Catholic Church are deep rooted and may never change. I pray daily for the Lords guidence. Has anyone delt with an issue similiar to this before?
