Ever since I started pursuing Catholicism and been learning more and more about it, like I’ve said before, I came to realize that it’s THE Church. Well, it does make sense if you look at the history of it like the early Church fathers, apostoles and their passing on of the teachings from Jesus, etc. etc. and could go on and on.
Well, forgive me for saying this but I’m going to say it anyway. Now that I’ve come to the knowledge of the Truth, I felt that when I was a Protestant, I was being taught some “false” stuff…I’m not saying that what they taught was false, it’s just that they were preaching and all this the way that really wasn’t intended maybe. Now that I’ve been going to Mass for approx. 6 months, I realized that this is what feels and seems TRUE in reality, as if what Jesus intended, like obviously I sense a true presence of our Lord!
Now that I’ve come to know the Truth, I just have this terrible desire to go out and tell non-Catholics that oh, the CC is THE Church and the teachings, etc. are great and True and oh boy, this and that, that and this, etc. but I DON’T want to because I try to respect the freedom of choice for people and their religion and all that. Yet I also do feel that EVERYONE SHOULD know the Truth and how it SHOULD be taught!
Could anyone give me some nice advice here?
I also want to point out that I feel anti-Protestant!! Not that I want to be or anything and I shouldn’t. It’s just that everytime I get something that’s non-Catholic in the mail or whatever, I get this feeling like, oh they don’t have a clue what they’re saying teaching and all this and that and I struggle to not think like that but I can’t help it! I try to pray that I would love ALL people regardless of religion and stuff and pray that I would understand better and accept it. But if I do try to accept non-Catholic stuff, than something deep down inside of me is saying something like, you’re suppose to be practicing and learning Catholic! Don’t look at this stuff!
Help me! :banghead: It’s probably pride, eh?:eek:
How and what do I do than?
