Matt 10:37: He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me.
I’d ask you: how YOU choose to walk with the Lord, as a part of YOUR story, isn’t that ultimately between YOU and God? :hmmm:
Is your [or your family’s] desire to understand the faith of the Apostles or merely to follow insert-pastor-name-here] blindly? :shrug:
My advice is to continue what you are doing: ask A TON of questions! Don’t just listen to the content, but pay attention to the tone of the answer. You know when someone is talking out of love or indoctrination. “St Francis” reply to you is an example of heartfelt love and concern. (Nice try “Graceful_Lamb” LOL!! Tomorrow is promised to no one, eh? :tsktsk::hey_bud: )
You are doing what most people really should do with their “faith”: learn it to practice it intentionally. :thankyou:God created us intentionally, I know we must seek Him in the same manner. Perhaps you can be the beacon of love and kindness as you grow in your Catholic faith. I’ll be :gopray2:'ing for ya, bro! :blessyou: - CRJ
“There are not a hundred people in America who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions of people who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church — which is, of course, quite a different thing.”~Archbishop Fulton Sheen
