I would like to thank everyone here on the apologetic section of the forum. I have two siblings but I have always been closer to my brother. He attends a very fundamentalist church called the WOrd of GOd. Considering how evangilical some fundamentalist can be, especially where love is concerned, I was nervous about announcing to him that I was considering RCIA. He said his only problem with the Catholic Church was that they worshiped statues. Well I have read all the posts here on Dave’s Allegation that Catholic’s Worship Statues. I asked my brother if he would ask me to pray if his wife was sick. The expression on his face was definitly duh, but he answered, “of course.” I told him that was all that Catholics do. And then I briefly explained that Catholics believe that the saints in heaven can hear us. It was easy. I was prepared for more questions or at least something more difficult. I went a little bit in to my problem with Protestants-the removing of books from the bible. I wasn’t trying to convert him, just make him understand my view point. He seemed open and not condeming which was all I wanted.
