You only need to read up on the catholic Church and Protestant Reformation to make your decision. Then you must commit yourself to your faith. Catholicism mirrors Christ’s life. It is hard. It is a sacrafice, but it is in every since of the meaning, living your life for Christ as He taught His Apostles. It is the one Church where you can be in the Actual Presence of your Savior. But you already know that.
You will read and hear many things about the Church but you must discern for yourself by studying and praying.
There were only two covenants given by God. The OT in part, is an account of the Law of Moses and the Commandments. That is the covenant given by God to the Isrealites to give them faith and lead them into the Promised Land. Moses was their prophet and their guide.
The NT is the account of the New Covenant as God forshadowed in the OT. God sent His Only Begotten Son as the New Covenant so that we could be in Heaven with the Holy Spirit. Jesus in order to fullfill God’s promise, had to be sacrificed. Before that was accomplished He gave the authority of all that He’d taught to His Apostles and made Peter His “Rock” but also promised to never leave the Church. From there the catholic faith has been in exsistance. For 2000 years Christ’s church has been a living, breathing, Body of Christians married to Christ through Baptism.
The other denominations did not come along until after 1500 and were started by men or women who didn’t like a particular aspect of the catholic faith and decided on their own to form a new church.
So I chose to be a part of the original Church Christ spoke of when He made Peter it’s Rock, not one of the churches that didn’t like the church and therefor left.
By calling yourself a “Protestant” you are protesting Christ’s teaching as handed down by the Apostles. Even Protestant Chruches admit that they are so because they don’t follow catholicism or they don’t follow another Protestant Church. SDA is one such church, they are broken off from yet a Protestant church and even further removed from Christ’s Church. But you know all this, you are catholic. So what has made you doubt?
I will you God’s Blessings in your journey. He will let you know where you should be. Just please be well informed. Don’t go into anything blind.
Peace Be With You.
