I have a co-worker who is a non Catholic Christian. When I asked what denomination he was from, he gave me the “Just Christian” answer. So in my head I was like "Ok, he is of the non-denominational denomination lol )
I seem to have gotten him to respect Catholics more, because he told me so. We talk like brothers in Christ but I told him to make no mistake in that I believe that The Catholic Church IS Gods true Church. I believe I told him that after he started in with the “It does not matter if you are Catholic or Christian just as long as…” speech.
He kept trying to tell me afterward that “God has put it in his heart that it does not matter whether you are protestant or Catholic” (only he did not say protestant, he said Christian) I explained to him that if he tells me that God told him something and The Catholic Church tells me something else, I am going to believe my Church not him lol. I guess he kind of understood but tried to tell me the same thing again “God put it in my heart to tell you…” or something a long those lines. I noticed this is typical of the "evangelical type. I also think he does the whole “Randomly open the Bible and whatever page you open, that is what God Is telling you” thing. Any thoughts on this? What do you typically say/do when a evangelical claims that God is telling them to tell you something that conflicts with Church teaching? Maybe he did not directly say “God told me to tell you…” but that is what it seemed like. But I have gotten the “God told me to tell you” speech before by evangelicals. BTW I use to be a protestant Christian and I was not to Crazy about all of that even before I became Catholic.
