I have been raised a Catholic and see that as my faith and I have recently got very involved in studying the Bible more than I have ever done before. I wont lie to you that (it is a blessing if you look at it) that the reason behind me sunddenly getting the urge to go to Mass every week and study and read the Bible like I have never done before is because the man I am marrying is a born again christian, and even though he respects our differences in faith there are loads of questions he asks me regarding certain things mentioned in the bible that we follow and do a different way e.g “call no man father” yet we call Preists Father, “never have a mediator” (they think we use Mary as a Mediator between us and Jesus, and baptizing of babies who are not at an age of understanding so cant follow the line “repent and be baptised”.
I have backed the Catholic understanding on these certain subjects with theorys and actual quotes from the Bible and he starts to realise and question a little more, but then he will ask for advice from someone who believes in the born again way and they will convince him that their way is the ‘right’ way.
**Now I wouldnt knock anyone’s faith or beliefs because I dont have the power, we will only know if what we have done is right or wrong on judgement day by the ONE PERSON that holds such power. But i genuinely believe in my mind, body and soul that the Catholic way is the way to go. **
I am not saying that my fiances beleifs are wrong because he too beleives in Jesus and reads the Bible religiously, however the one thing (and i would never class everyone the same, this is from PERSONAL experience) that I have got from certain born-again followers is that what they think is 100% accurate to what Jesus said or meant. Now any reader of intelligence knows that some things Jesus said were anabolic (if thats the correct spelling) which means they could of been taken 1 of 2 ways, for e.g ‘call no man father’…did he mean literally or not. Now a born-again christian quoted this and said ‘why do you call a Preist Father when it clearly tells you NOT to do this?’ and ‘that is what Jesus meant’, now **who is anyone to tell me or anyone ‘what Jesus meant’? no one has the right!! That would also be hypocrital because if they went on to read the WHOLE passage is mentions not to call anyone master, teacher, doctor. **
Is there anyone out there who could help me with any amazing quotes to justify what we believe is the TRUTH. I dont want to take over his life or make him feel bad about what he belives in. Only he is in control of his own faith. **BUT are there any quotes, bible phrases, bits from scriptures or any opinions that can give him something to think about??
IS ANYONE HERE ORIGINALLY A CHRISTIAN OR BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN OR ANY OTHER RELIGION WHO CHANGED TO THE CATHOLIC FAITH??? IF SO COULD YOU PLEASE SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY
I am really looking forward to hearing from you
