I was born and baptized into The Church of Christ. And that is were all of my family are members …however I realized that I was not getting a closer relationship with God…so i moved to the Baptist church. There i became an active member who attened Sunday School and the Wensday night services. (Basically every time the doors open). However, recently i had some friends intorduce me to the Catholic religion, and have loved every minute of it. I agree with everything that i know about the religion so far (especially the bread and wine being changed into the actual body and blood of christ *)
Anyway, last Sunday was The Fifth Sunday (the day the baptist church takes communion). And before we take communion the preacher gives a sermon…this Sunday the sermon was about the communion…he said that the communion that we were about to take was only a symbol and was nothing more. I, however, could not accept that, for the first time, the church that i was attending actually said it…“it is only a symbol”…a view that I did not agree with. So, during that service, i truly beleive that I received a calling from God to convert and become a Catholic. I am 16 years old.
Ok, now I get to my question:
I told my parents and they were agains’t the idea from the very first second…they have proved to be anti-catholic. I have argued with them, and proven most of the the things that they don’t believe in to be true ( IE. Purgatory), which was most of their arguments to keep me from becoming Catholic, but now all of a sudden, after they have realized that I wasn’t going to take there arguments as fact untill i read up on it, they have told me not to argue with them because the bible says “Honor you Father and Mother.” I do not want to go against the bible…but I also want to become Catholic. Could you please advise me on my situation?
