Mr. Weathers, about your question:
[quote:m854jvdb]So what your saying is don’t do “I would say just follow the 10 commanents to the best of ones ability,and as the old saying “do unto others what you want them to do to you”.goto mass every week,goto confession frequently”and just live for Christ?[/quote:m854jvdb]
1) how can one live for Christ until they belive in Him? Meaning accepting His guft of Salvation for your sins
2) and this includes giving up the faulty “traditions” of Catholicism. [b:m854jvdb][color=red:m854jvdb]knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.

How I wish I could make you see the difference!
