If he was a sniper on a roof top with a rifle and scope, he would miss every single shot, and the enemy would be walking around without worries. It does not replace Christ, it serves Him. I think the official church teaching is that people who have heard about Jesus are obligated to believe in him, but people in some remote village who have never even heard of him but who do their best to do what is right could still go to Heaven. When Holy scripture warns us NOT to add anything to HIS WORD, I must take that commandment very seriously, and whether I have my own private doubts or new ideas it is absolutely wrong for me to taint another’s life with vain imaginings. There is so much that is a part of Christianity that you will not find in the Bible. Angel, you are so right. All I can say is, ans I quote Jesus Himself: “He is not God of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong.”. Where is that in the Bible? If there is one fact I have learned and experienced through my time at a Catholic college, it is that the school is extremely accepting and supportive of all their students, whether or not they are part of the Catholic religion. People have asked me several times as well how my husband and I can be married when we don’t believe the same thing–how that works. I read their blog and see that they are horrified at the Day of the Dead, but they pretend they like Our Lady of Guadalupe to get the Mexicans to come to their mission churches.

If I don’t know the answer I will search with you, but the time has come for Catholics to stop being comfortable and waiting for everyone to “come around”. I find that stance a sad one. We are Catholic converts, and most of our family thinks we are crazy. But I don’t see how it really makes a huge difference either way so I’m not worried about it. I have a couple of posts on these exact issues coming up in a couple weeks–I really hope you’ll check them out! Really, my purpose here isn’t to argue that Catholic or Protestant is right in a way that anyone should just “pick one” but just to examine some core beliefs/differences to find out where the truth lies. I pray everyone will ask the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of their hearts so they will be led to the Truth. It was some kind of gift i received early on. I think it all returns back to the history of the Church and the Bible. The Church has always taught that it is sinful behavior, a mortal sin (fornication/homosexual acts). They have affirmed that the form of respect given to Mary and the other “saints” is also tantamount to worship, based on what Scripture has taught on Biblical worship, which should be reserved for God alone. Its like a bunch of rabbit trails leading us away from seeing the clear big picture. The Catholic teaching is that Mary was without sin–Mary’s is the Immaculate Conception (that many Protestants think refers to Jesus’ conception). I just listened to the sermon I posted above. In the later half of the 4th century, the Church (Catholic bishops and the pope) were trying to sort out what could or could not be read in the Mass (Liturgy). The brothers who are with me greet you”. Let me know if you ever want to talk or ask questions…I do have a series on my blog where different Catholic women write on why they are Catholic or what the love most, perhaps it would be helpful on your journey of faith? That doesn’t make everyone guilty of the crimes of a few, and it does NOT mean that innocent Catholic priests deserve negative treatment today because of it. I am not catholic, but have Catholic friends. The same way as if I adopted a baby from another country. And again, more on the subject in the same article linked above. Well, the issue of whether or not there’s even a God at all is a topic for a whole other series (and one I’d like to do this summer. to find In His HOLY Word. And I figured by the time the boys got to that–they could chose for themselves. He saved her from sin, but He still did it through his death, just after the fact. The doctrine has never been believed by the masses to be a part of the problem. We are planning on trying to start a family in the next couple of months and it is on the list of “must figure out” before any pregnancy announcements. We must always remember one thing about prayer, it is not a Christmas list. Catholics love their faith and despite some aspects related to the history of the church and common misconceptions, their faith, worship and traditions all help bring them closer to God. He is another convert and in this book he covers just what you are writing about : the common objections/misunderstandings about Catholicism. God chose her to be His mother. Then they kneel because it is a pious practice that they have always done. The Catholic church may not do things the “feminist” way, but they do hold women in very high esteem, even referring to them as the “crown of creation.” That’s pretty special if you ask me 🙂, Like I said earlier, the intent of this post is ONLY to dispel a few Catholic myths so that, going forward, your thoughts and opinions aren’t swayed by misinformation. Each of these movements have meaning. The core idea you really need to understand is just that saints are not worshipped. And yes, I’m currently questioning how much I have to believe to be Catholic. I pray that the eyes of your understanding will be enlightened. They are *not* Catholic. Christ, however, can. Now over 20 years after coming into full Communion with the Catholic Church, the joy of discovery is greater than ever before. The Arc was assumed into a heaven, so why wouldn’t Mary? Catholicism isn’t what led them to do that or to think it was okay. One way to see this today, would be a woman that consecrates herself to God in a convent and remains a virgin her whole life. We would pray to Jesus. It’s just to clear a few very common misconceptions out of the way so that those Protestants who couldn’t even *think* of ever being Catholic bc they are just a bunch of idol worshippers could come into the rest of the series with a few of the major barriers removed, if that makes sense? But there is a catch to this; the responsibility of your response. Catechumens? A woman can serve the Church in a multitude of ways, except as a priest. I now see myself as a catholic (small-c intentional) Christian built upon a strong Mennonite Christian foundation. I think what matters in our religious diversity is RESPECT to one’s faith. How can other people can go to Heaven if you claim they are wrong anyway? I think I have learned more from listening to other people’s questions and discoveries than I have learned from family that were born and raised in the Catholic Faith. At some points my ferver for my Faith has been stronger than others, as happens to many in their faith life, but I have always loved the beauty and the richness of the Church. People that hold to the position of Scripture Alone, can and arrive at many correct beliefs that are taught in the bible; that is the official Catholic position.

After you understand the Mass and the flow of everything, move to the front row and provide those little ones a clear line of sight to the sanctuary. You have your info mixed up. What many don’t know is that Martin Luther actually made an attempt to remove the books of James, Hebrews, Jude and Revelation from the canon (notably, her perceived them to go against certain Protestant doctrines such as sola gratia and sola fide), but this was not generally accepted by his followers and ultimately, unsuccessful.

I hope both sides really learn a lot from this entire series. God is Holy and his word is forever true,Only he could save us and he needed a Human being(free from original sin)but having free will to say yes or no to his plan of salvation for us.Think about it if God Made Adam and Eve with original sin then there would have been no fall and no need to save them and us.God being holy can only be in a holy environment,Unless we do not take Jesus as God ,of who he truly is,(The word that became flesh),That Ark of the new covenant(Mary) had to be free from original sin because God is Holy. As someone who also isn’t Catholic and who grew up in a Baptist church, I know exactly where you are coming from. If an Eastern Rite priest’s wife should die, however, then he is returned to the celibate state and is not permitted to remarry. 4. I encourage you to create a forum, where reading is easier. If she was without sin, why does she need a savior? Works is glorifying God in what we do! I am a Protestant. I love the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much passage, and in fact James is my favorite book – I always wonder how marvelous it would be to grow up with a big brother who never taunted you! But, you’re right, it is a huge teaching and it’s the one I’ll be covering next week! She had total free will, but, unlike Eve, she chose to be faithful to God in all things, because she was endowed with a unique grace. I don’t know all the details involved (may have made a vow of celibacy within the second marriage or not (? Maybe by following this series I’ll be able to help explain more from an outsiders point of view. That makes sense as far as questions about people who’ve never heard of Jesus or the RCC.

Copyright ©2020, EQUIPPING GODLY WOMEN MINISTRIES, LLC. I don’t know that it does. They still go to God/Jesus). And look, your clothes are still clean! I remember when I did my journey (I love the truth), as I began to sift through the ‘obvious’ errors and then dove deeper into learning and gained a thorough understanding of things, it became an unquenchable thirst for Truth that lasted roughly 18 months. And also, this conversation was probably before John 20:23, in which Jesus says to the apostles “If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.” So if Jesus told the apostles they could forgive sins… then it must not be exclusive to God alone. The same way you might ask me to pray for you, or I might as you to pray for me. None of the 4 catholic parishes that I attended emphasized reading the bible for yourself as much as every nondenominational Christian church I have been a part of. I completely disagree. He was on his way to assume a high position in his church and his journey led him to be one of the strongest voices out there for the Catholic church. You’re walking along a road and fall into a deep hole. 🙂. Additionally, they all believe the same thing. Stop down playing and admit the horrendous act that was made and publically apologize for the church’s hand in covering that up. And there are just too many major issues that they’ve been right on that I can’t just ignore it. We met a couple other times, shorter spans of time. The Vatican knew and did *nothing* to stop this. Thank you for taking the time to get it right! For that reason most Catholics are messed up and don’t know what they are supposed to believe. She is unique. I hope that was not adequate to make you stop reading this short article. am a catholic and i often get tired of people judging and making assumptions about a religion they have no idea about. I always felt guilty for something as a girl growing up(clothing, behaviour) etc. Here is another one that is a real beauty. And at the same time we are going through five stages of the prayer and at each stage we are meditating on a certain part of scripture. I just can’t see how it would mean another person’s prayers are going to be heard before mine, except that if I am praying vainly without having come to the father in humility of repentance, and one of my sisters or brothers is hearing His Spirit urging them to intercede for me. I will pray for you on your journey. As I am a little puzzled growing up that this was indeed to be true about Mosses. Anthony is the finder of lost things, St. Christopher for travelers, St. Blaise for throat injuries, etc…again I say they are not worshipped but they are asked for help. I’m still not so sure that a perfect person agreeing to raise a perfect baby is quite an impressive as sinners raising kids in today’s culture, though 🙂 Not saying she’s not a tremendous example of faith; just have yet to fall in love as much as Catholics have, if that makes sense 🙂. So perhaps one way to approach this is that the Catholics in your community have so many statues and paintings of Mary because we can only commemorate her, while we can actually become physically united to Christ in the Eucharist. I’ll have to check that out! They aren’t asking Mary to do anything under her own power–just asking her to pray for them. Its all made up as Fredric Niche said: ” Organized religion is a natural psychological phenomenon used to by oppressed people, long enslaved to make sense of their suffering. That’s just how I am anyways. A believer is made clean by the blood of Christ and the Father see a believer through Christ. I figured they just had really big families back then and the whole “it takes a village” mentality 🙂. Of course, the words prayed in the Rosary come from Scripture. I am not in a position to be a nun as I’m divorced. Does that make every politician or every American a criminal–just because some are? No one is forcing them to choose one or the other. No, that makes sense. For instance, an Anglican priest that is married converts to Cathloicism, he can become a priest and remain married. She made this offering out of obedience to her faith. It’s also the logical conclusion of believing in Eternal Life, too: a saint in Heaven is more alive than we are here on earth, and they are with us in Christ. The covenant helpmeet. Notice that it immediately follows the passage about confessing to each other, and that act itself suggests repentance, which of course leads to re-affirming our righteousness as covered by Christ’s atonement. It just says that this is not for them to say what God can or cannot do in this situation. That’s a good question, but I don’t think that verse quite applies in this case. To love one another and pray for each other, it like a big family affair, and the head of the family is the Pope, he leads and guides and we follow the best of our abilities. On the outside, it sure does look wrong. He didnt lie and neither did the Rcc. 3. The question I pose is this. In all of the rites a priest many not get married. It’s just easier sometimes to refer to Catholic and Protestant belief because that gives people a frame of reference instead of just saying whatever. Marionite rite would be an example. About Jesus: Hebrews 4:15 “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”. We do not worship her, or the saints. – sin. Catholics truly, truly believe they are Christians, too. With the Mary and the saints it is similar, but the Virgin Mary takes preeminence BECAUSE she was the Mother of Jesus, and Jesus is God. It is only now beginning to recover, so most Catholics aren’t that knowledgeable about their faith. My pet peeve, by the way, is the Catholic/Christian thing. Their claim to be exclusively the church of Jesus Christ appears to be based on lineage, the unbroken chain of popes from St. Peter to the present. It was symbolic, and he said nothing about it being necessary to salvation. Why were there NO female priests in the Old Testament? We hold them in our hearts with great honor and respect. I agree with Jill P. I am not sure what you meant by that myth. Yes, I bet most women are, but that certainly doesn’t mean you have to be by any means! Catholics are not idol worshipers. The source, summit and center of the Catholic faith is the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. This concerns me deeply. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” That’s good enough for me. Purgatory is a subject which I do a long presentation. So – the devil has effectively divided us…and thus conquered in a very effective way. Paul also talks of Tradition. lol. was tearing at her heart when our kids were not enthusiastic to go to It’s only when these traditions are prioritized over God Himself or when they take us further away from God instead of drawing us near. Yes, the issue of the Eucharist is one of the very first ones I had to deal with and a big motivator in pushing forward on this journey! The Bible is absolutely a fantastic, reliable, error-free, inspired source, but it isn’t the ONLY one. Protestant ministers and pastors, and professors at Protestant colleges with years of biblical studies and some with a lifelong of leading congregations sacrifice EVERYTHING (jobs, careers, etc) to become Catholic. church were much more classroom style (NOT FUN) as they would say. He did. Catholicism and the Bible teach us of the sacred bond between bride and bridegroom. The popes themselves were aware of these goings on for decades. Hope that helps! There are a lot of councils, and regular milestones with catechism that will be taking place for all of the children.

You also have the option to opt-out of these cookies. =) I’m impressed with your diligence dispelling these myths as you try to reconcile the Faith you grew up with and the Faith you married into! This myth has deep roots. I’m not trying to convert or persuade, just present you with some information about Protestant and Catholic beliefs so YOU can make an informed decision of your own. The rule for married clergy in both Rites are similar, if not the same: what happens is that a married man is ordained; a man, once ordained, may not marry (former Protestant ministers who are married who are permitted to be ordained Catholic priests are allowed a dispensation under those rubrics). By the way, “perfection” does not mean she didn’t have the same worries and struggles as any other parent. Here is a link to it: I find this a most interesting trade. A job half-done is a job not done at all. And those are interesting facts! Of these, some priests can marry after ordination. He will bless your efforts to learn His truth. Then, that saint can (the ‘through’ thing) take my prayers and his/hers before the throne of God ‘through Jesus Christ’ our mediator; we see this action taking place in the Book of Revelation. Because she was a woman? Do you remember Philosophy 101? That you CAN, but you certainly don’t HAVE to). Actually, the discipline of celibacy has been “mandated” only in the Roman/Latin rite of the Church. Aren’t they still a savior? The thought that the Catholic Church is male dominant is just because of the male supremacy is bogus when properly understood. Of these 360 quotations or references, 300 of them come or ONLY make sense out of the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Hebrew OT done around 260 BC). Myth k#6 – For the last 2,000 years there has always been married Catholic priest. I like to think of asking Mary for her intercession in prayer as something pretty special because I don’t think Jesus could deny His momma anything. And if there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Because it isn’t a culture of questioning. My Catholic family are some of the most hypocritical and judgemental people I know. If these claims are in fact true, then everything else I may or may not have issues with can logically follow.

The post on Traditions is scheduled for March 25, and I’ll talk much more in-depth about it then. It is good to seek the truth and how to live as God wants us to. Reading your 9th myth, I would add (and ask readers to check for themselves) that the ratio of men in America that become pedophiles is 4% which is the same as in the Church. Again thank you for your work. The problem arises when some things are not clear enough. “Perfection” implies completeness. I’m not sure I’ve heard of it–I know I haven’t heard of the host. Neither of us has much power. And scoffing at feminism does you no favours, without that, you wouldn’t be enjoying the quality of life you have now.

A married man, ordained to the priesthood or permanent diaconate, whose wife dies cannot remarry, and is returned to the celibate state. I didn’t even know some of these issues existed.

That’d be waaay too long for a single blog post! The book “Rome Sweet Home” by Scott Hahn is a very good read about a Presbyterian ministers journey. The very last conversation we had, as I was walking away I said to him: “I will be praying for you, J … !” Moreover, I would also admit that what I’ve heard were testimonies, and thereby, experiences.
