I’m so mad.:mad: But I shouldn’t be, I should be ashamed. I was talking with my step-mom(protestant) about the Catholic Church and how its truth. She turned a conversation on theology, into a morality conversation. To sum it up she says she doesn’t want to hear me talk about the Catholic Church untill she saw that I was outwardly living the faith. When I tried to bring it back to theology and what the church teaches, she went back to morality, saying what are basics? Then asking me “why I am not living it”. It seems as though she didnt want to talk about theology. She made me look absolutly ridiculous.
To give her credit, she was completly correct, I should be doing more. But if im correct werent the Jews obligated to listen but not follow the ways of the Pharisees? Now Im not saying I can be a hypocryit(spelling?), and teach it to people, but is that really a fair argument to use?
She is a social worker and is really good about getting into peoples heads, she admitted to useing that tactic on me. I think that was sneaky. I know I have a lot of work to do in outwardly living the faith, but im still learning and I want to live the faith but my will to live the faith is low.
