Hi everyone, this is my first post in this forum. To be honest, I have never really been a faithful catholic and I would never imagine myself posting a thread in a catholic forum. Fortunately, things started to change recently and I felt myself building an attachment to my faith but now I am faced tied up in a situation and I dont know what i should do.
Theres a colleague at work that had lunch with me one afternoon, we ended up talking about faith and stuff, he is a christian (baptist) and he has been trying hard to get me to attend some of the events. I did not want to come off too hard telling him to respect my faith, so I never did so. I also din't want to jeopardize the working relationship between us. Recently he told me he was going to organize a mini course about the teachings of his faith and asked what i thought about the idea.
I thought it was great that he was spreading his faith, doing much more than i ever did for my religion, so i told him that it was a good idea. However, things started to get complicated when he started arranging appointments with me for these sessions. I tried to avoid them by giving excuses but I guess its indirectly telling him that im interested, just that i can't make it. It reached a point where he planned sessions for up to 6 weeks and I cannot avoid them.
I don't know what to do, on one hand, I want to believe that my faith is strong and it will not waiver with the teachings he pushes through. On the other, I am afraid that i waiver and get persuaded by what he prepared and presented. God have been blessing me all this while, I am very thankful for all the gifts he had given me. This is why I am so afraid that i might lose my way. I know that all the gifts that I received was all due to his good graces and nothing else.
Please help me, I do not even know the differences in the bibles, I have never really find out the differences in the branches of Christianity and I am afraid that i might be dumbfounded and swayed like old ladies being swayed to buy a risky investment.
Please send me messages, reply the trend to help me.
