I am currently going throug the RCIA process to convert from Lutheran to Catholic. This whole process has really changed my life and I am very excited to share my new beliefs and faith with others. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t want to hear about it. I got into a conversation with some co-workers today about lust. Out of the blue, someone said that “everything is a sin for a Catholic.” That really upset me and I didn’t know the right way to respond.
Up to this point in my life, I wasn’t very smart. I made a lot of stupid decisions and my reputation precedes me. As a new Catholic, I’m trying to start over and really live my life the way Jesus intends us to. It’s very difficult for people to swallow that fact - it ends up being a joke to most. Nobody gives you the benefit of the doubt and thinks you can change. As a christian, I’m taught that I should care about others and try to show them the light… but in this instance, I just don’t see how that’s possible. :mad:
