[quote=joe_cuban]I’m debating back and forth with my brother-in-law right now who is a Mormon. I was a member of their church for several months, but I left after I lost faith in Joseph Smith. I’ve posted this elsewhere in the forum (twice, whoops!): forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=56888.
I would find this tough, tough, tough: defending a faith that you’re just coming to know. How do you do it?
[quote=joe_cuban]One of my friends, a marginal Muslim, has basically stopped associating with me. It’s sad, but it’s his decision.
Yes, this sounds sad. Was this because you simply stated your intention to convert, or were there disagreements?
[quote=joe_cuban]Most of the maternal side of my family is excited since they are largely Catholic. However, I think my dad is freaking out inside and my wife remains very skeptical.
My goal is to show them, slowly, but surely, Christ in my life. And to explain their misconceptions when they arise, to the best of my ability.
Sounds wise, mature, and charitable. Hopefully, they will be moved by your doing so.
[quote=joe_cuban]August, and the RCIA classes, seem very far away right now!
Lot’s of caring, supportive, and encouraging folks at CAF. Perhaps, we could help to get you there.
