I recently got the e-mail below from a collegue. The subject came up regarding a Catholic’s obligation to attend mass on Sunday. In other words, the writer, who is Protestant, is saying that Catholics don’t need to got to Mass. Anyone have any ideas on how best to answer this e-mail politely and briefly. (I thought “Hit the road, Jack” might work, but on further reflection… )
I respect your Catholic faith. But remember that the Word of the Lord is the important part of the service on Sunday, not the Faith you follow. I am in no way putting down anyones faith.
This is only an option that I am showing you. The following Bible verse show an example:
Colossians 2:9,10 (NIV) For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in the bodily form, and you have be given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
Isaiah 29:13 (NIV) The Lord says “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men”
I am in no way trying to start a flame bait or an argument. I am showing Cyruss one possible option (for not going to mass on Sunday).
