If you’re a former Catholic, why did you stop following Jesus, despite your screen name?
Thanks for asking Edyson. My fiance’ at the time had been in a horrible accident and was banged up pretty bad. We had a one year old son at the time and I had to be the sole provider for him for some time. I come from a traditional Catholic Hispanic family where the man o’ the house does his best to provide for his family but leaves much of the care of the little ones to the woman. I was scared out of my mind! I needed God’s help. I started reading the Catholic Bible on the mantle.
As for now I don’t belong to a church. It’s just me and the word. And Jesus who I can’t see or touch. The separation I feel from my family and the alienation are what hurt the most.
**Just you and the word, huh?
How does this fit with the infallible Word of God that says, “Let us not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some?”
And Jesus said, “Touch Me and see it is I Myself.”
And as it is also written, “O, taste and see that the Lord is good!”
None of this explains why your fiance’s accident steered you away from the simplicity of the Gospel to the “do your own thing” mystery of iniquity.**
