As I am journeying in RCIA, I getting excited about my Confirmation, but I admit I sometimes fall into a certain viewpoint which is probably wrong:
Basically, one of the things I love about the Catholic Church is I feel it is much more objective than the Protestant background I came to faith in. Whereas many people, especially more Evangelical types, complain about all the rules of Catholicism, I find them comforting. After all, as a Protestant, people talked about subjective ideals like “listening for the voice of God” or “seating Christ on the throne of your life”, etc. etc. As a soon-to-be Catholic, I feel like it is much more objective. There are rules to follow (i.e. go to Mass every Sunday and on all Holy Days of obligation, don’t commit mortal sin, etc.). In many ways, it seems easier than the Protestant (I am not saying all Protestants are like this, but many of the ones I dealt with and were involved with were like this) view of where it seems more subjective like “just let the Spirit guide you” or “just do Christ’s will”.
Also, I find it easier to seek to serve the Church than to serve Christ. After all, the Church is quite vocal (I do not mean this in a negative way) as to what it expects and wants. In some ways, I guess it feels better for me to feel I seek to serve the Church.
Is this a wrong view theologically? After all, I do want to serve the Church, I am drawn to the Sacraments (especially Reconciliation, which my Priests tell me I receive way too much, and, when I am Confirmed, the Eucharist) and I believe that the Church is the original Christian Church (at least, from my readings of history, I have not found an earlier church that can show how it has been in operation since the beginning).
Sometimes, I feel a rebellious attitude towards Christ, but never towards the Catholic Church.
