ok, i’ve taken my deep breath…i guess i really shouldn’t assume what you guys mean, especially when i have limited knowledge of the catholic faith. that’s why i joined this site, and have asked constructive questions in the past…to learn about the faith. and although i may disagree with some points, losing my cool is not going to help me learn. i still don’t think that because i accepted Chirst as a child that i can do whatever i want and lead myself astray the rest of my life and still get into heaven…maybe you’re right…maybe most non-catholics think that, but myself as an individual do not…and i haven’t seen that attitude in anyone from my church either. and i’m glad that catholics think it’s a life-long journey too, because that’s the way it should be.
