Just what rules boggs Catholics down???
On the flip side, I was inches away from becoming Protestant myself! What kept me back was that Protestantism was filled with sensationalism! Sensationalism, that is having doctrines that sound good, but nonetheless may not always be biblical! Have you ever heard the cleashay (sp?), if it sounds too good to be true, its probably not true!
Here are some quick-catch phrases that sound good at first hear, that I repeatedly heard!!
Sola Scriptura? ?
Just a relationship with Christ is all you need?
Just confess that Jesus is your Lord and Savior and your ticked has been bought, inspite of what you may or may not do after!
Saved by only faith!
Don’t worry, you will be ratpured???
Quantity over Quality??? We go to church twice a week, 5 hours bible study etc, you catholics go once a week for a 45 mins to eat cookie God!
It wasn’t wine, it was grape juice???True Christians don’t drink wine, or anything similar to it!
We must be True Christians because we have Pot lucks!
Christians must carry a bible in your hand - proof that your a Christian! Not carrying one equates to infidel! Never said, but presumed!
SSShhhh, quiet…we don’t have crosses or images at our alter, because we don’t do that worship thing, but our Childrens books do!
Even the smallest amount of gambeling is a sin. Then Pastures wife buys $20 dollars of state lottery tickects, jumps for joy becuase she wins $100.00
etc…etc etc…contradiction after contradiction…selective reasoning, I say, and the list goes on!
I am sorry if separated Christian brothers takes my post the wrong way, but this is what I saw, and this is how I felt! I thank God for this experience. It prompted me to study my faith giveng to me from childhood; the Catholic faith! And now, I am fully convinced and never turning back!
