Hi. I’m actually a recent convert to Christianity in general from Unitarian Universalism, Wicca and New Age. However, I have been seeking God (admittedly for quite some time, there, in all the wrong places) for a very long time, and have never settled for anything less than the truth. Now it comes to Christianity, I look at the various sects, remember Jesus saying “A house divided against itself shall not stand” and realize, "Hey, one of them has to be the right one."
Catholicism has simply had the right answers just about every time I’ve heard them give one.
But I got turned away at the door.
Now the (Vicar? Pastor? I’m new, please be patient with me) had his reasons-- I was asking to join the church when, in two years time, I’m supposed to be moving (God willing) to a bigger city to pursue my career in Graphic Design. So with me leaving, he didn’t think it good to make me a part of that particular family.
But I’m scared out of my mind! I have mortal sins on my soul and no one to confess them to!
I’ve read the scripture, and I know I’m not Protestant. I’m still researching Greek Orthodoxy, but they say some things that seem against scripture to me, so here I am again, scared out of my mind. "Catholicism is right, I need to get to confession."
He also told me that I might as well go back to the church I came from because all protestant churches were simply “reformed catholic churches”.
What on Earth do I do?
