Wait a second here, not once when reading scripture or reading articles from CA did it say Catholics worship the same God which would be Allah (I’m considering to become Catholic).
Is Steven John confused or wrong?
The reason I want to become Catholic is Jesus’ teachings, they make sense, nothing about diets or what clothes to wear or petty things like that. No offense Steven John, I didn’t like the Koran, didn’t seem like it was from a divine source to me like the Gospels (some parts actually sickened me, no offense, maybe I misinterpreted some things).
So tell me it’s Jesus I would be worshiping if I became a Catholic and not Allah in disguise. I don’t like to find out down the road that there is a connection between the Jesus and Allah, because it’s clear to me from reading the texts the two are polar opposites.
I really love Jesus’ teachings, I don’t know why each day I grow more close to what he says, a priest said it’s the Holy Spirit calling me, whatever it is, there is something special about Jesus.
If Catholics worship Allah then I’d rather be a Protestant. I don’t want to worship Allah, when I do commit to worshiping a higher power, I would want it to be the God that Jesus speaks of, the Father, not the God that Islam speaks of. You do not know (well, you guys are Catholic so you do know) how comforting it is to view God as a Father not as someone far away and unknown (I have a close relationship with my own father and in my own way I relate to that type of relationship).
The reason I choose Catholicism is because it can actually trace its origin to Jesus the other churches start with Martin Luther and that to me is a red flag of inauthentecity. Still I would rather search them out if it’s true what Steven John says.
So be honest with me on this one. I’m talking to this priest I meet from a church I visited and I’ll ask him to (really cool down to earth guy, didn’t push anything on me, no take RCIA now!, gave me some pamphlets and let me borrow a book too).
I’m pretty sure your wrong Steven John, but best of luck with your diet and fasting.
