Ok, so last night, I was in the car with my girlfriend and we got into a “conversation” about how her sister was angry at the people of their protestant church, which btw is rented space in an office building, (they are Pentecostal Born-again Christian) because they are so anti-Catholic. Her sister feels that everyone should agree to disagree on matters of doctrine and just get along. She said that it doesn’t matter what you are, as long as Christ is your Lord and Savior.
So it was nice of her sister to defend the Catholic faith in the sense that she got mad at the people of their church for being anti-Catholic but I wanted to help clarify some things to my girlfriend. What I said to her was that you can’t just go around picking a church thats right for you. That’s the whole problem with all these protestant denominations! God leads you to His Church. I explained that when you read the bible, Jesus clearly states: You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church MT 16:18. He doesn’t say 30,000 different denominations of my church. So anyway, I was explaining to her that you can’t just pick a church because they say what you want to hear. It doesn’t work that way. It’s pretty sad that they are feeling this way because it is totally unbiblical. So she of course, got angry (as she does whenever I try discussing my Catholic faith) and said that I was “knocking” what her sister was saying, whom btw she calls her “spiritual mother.”
Long story short, we got into a big argument about this. She claims that everytime she thinks about become Catholic, I lead her away from it. I have no idea how I do this when all I try to do it share the faith. It is so frustrating because it is so evident and clear that the Catholic Church is the One true Church that Christ commissioned. We have historical and biblical evidence. She does realize this, she knows and understands that we have Apostolic Succession and that Peter was our first Pope. Why is she so stubborn and so thick-headed to not accept the Church!?
Someone please give me some insight and help! I pray for her conversion everyday!
