Don’t worry about it. ” title=”Smile” />
There’s a whole series of books called Lutherans and Catholics in Dialogue. It’s what came out of meetings between Luther and Catholic leaders and theologians in discussing their different points of view. You might be interested in some of it. I have a couple of the books if you want them.February 20, 2009 at 3:18 am #9157AnonymousInactive
Far from trying to discourage you James, I would encourage everyone, be it encouraging unity between neighbors, on a website like this, or in cooperation with interreligious dialogue within ones denomination, (You can and should do all really) to pray as Jesus did, that we may all be one. Your questions and comments here are very appropriate, and welcome.February 22, 2009 at 6:34 am #9169AnonymousInactive
I feel really stupid right now…. ” title=”Sad” />
I don’t feel like my knowledge of Catholism is strong enough.
I don’t feel like my knowledge of the Protestant Churches are strong enough.
I don’t feel like my knowlege of the Bible is strong enough to understand anything.
I know I can’t learn everything right away, but even about two years of studying you would think I would be smarter by now…February 22, 2009 at 7:11 am #9171AnonymousInactive
I would only agree that you where stupid if you stopped trying to learn. I don’t know everything by a long shot. I have investigated the Protestant claims, and attacks at the Catholic Church, (probably since before you where born) and still don’t know everything. What I do know is so far, every attack against the Catholic Church has after investigating it has only brought me closer to God, and more convinced that Jesus promise that He would never abandon His Church rings true. I don’t think I really need to explain that that means I am more convinced now than ever that the Catholic Church is the same Church Jesus founded.
Does that mean that my faith is always strong? No. Does that mean that I can stop praying, reading, inquiring, and learning. No. Does that mean that I will (in this life) know everyting about my Faith? No. But as a Catholic I believe that if I remain faithful to God, and accept his grace, I will one day arrive in heaven where I will see God clearly, and know Him perfectly. Then anything I wish to know will be clear to me.February 23, 2009 at 5:30 am #9175AnonymousInactive
