I was invited to a Non-Denomination Church today. The service was no different. There was “speaking of tongues.” I admire the preachers zeal but none of it convince me to convert to their faith.
I was ask. “If you die today, will you go to heaven. Are you saved?”
I replied, “I am saved through the baptism.” I then had a discussion with one of the worshippers there. I show him in Scripture is that baptism that it saves you. He back step.
I then went to a dinner with them. On my way back to the barracks, we got into a discussion about my reversion story to my Catholic faith my discernment for the priesthood.
I told them the Eucharist kept me Catholic. Because Jesus is truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. They tried to show me it was not symbolic, I cited Jesus own words, “This is my Body.”
He said, “It is not his body.” Where is that said in the Bible?" I also pointed out why the disciples left him in John 6 verse 66, and they just try to change the subject by refering to Romans about confessing Jesus’ name.
I noticed how they try to avoid the issue which is the Jesus and that he lives in the Tabernacle.
I admire their zeal, and don’t blame them for their belief. I never really have an in real life discussion with anyone about my faith until this night.
It only proves to me that the CC is the One Christ Church. We did discuss the Reformation, but they lost that argument as well.
I use Scripture and historical facts to support the Catholic faith.
I hope I enlighten something in their zeal, they invite me again tonight.
I won’t say anything about Catholicism unless it is brought up in discussion, which I am happily to protect.
Oh, I did not part take in the worship. I made clear it that I came as an observer; nothing more.
If I should have any other encounter about this again. Do you have any advise?
