I am a devoted Catholic, I however seem to have problems defending things, like she says stuff to me like "we don’t believe in
baptism as an infant. You are only saved through accepting Christ as your savior (asking him to come into your heart and life and save you from our sin), that he died on the cross, arose on the 3rd day and is coming back. How can you do/believe that as an infant?! We also don’t believe in confessing our sins to the priest. They can’t save you, only God can. I know there’s also something that Catholics believe about the Virgin Mary. We believe that she bore Christ, but we don’t pray to her. "
I am confused, mainly because besides this I really like her a lot and we have a lot in common. Is it possible to be a devoted Catholic and date a Baptist? Also how do I respond to what she said?
Since you asked,
I collected some answers to questions that you surely will be asked. I tried to collect these by subject. If/when you get the question, if you don’t feel comfortable giving the answer yourself, then maybe she would like to read the answer for herself. Bottom line, Don’t let her make you her project. Know your faith
