Birth of a Catholic

Tonight, I go to bed a Catholic, having been sealed by the gift of the Holy Spirit, welcomed into the arms of the Mother Church, and communing in the true Body and Blood of my Lord. I am entirely overwhelmed.

  1. I have heard all of these arguments before, again and again and again. Do you want me to take the time to refute them? I can and will if you’d like, but I’d rather not, because it would make me really ill and upset. I don’t enjoy theological bickering, at all.

    If you want to speak of education, you should investigate the historical context of the Judaizers Paul was writing against in these passages. Or do a little reading about what Catholics actually believe, and why these arguments fall flat. Or keep reading my blog (which I hope you will do anyway), and maybe go back and read some of my back-posts, especially my personal testimony, still being written, of the many years and experiences that have brought me to this point. Rest assured that I didn’t come here without a whole lot of study and thought and listening to arguments like this.

    This blog is about the many reasons I’ve been drawn to Catholicism. I want to be a light to others, especially my brothers and sisters in Christ who have a mistaken and misinformed understanding of Catholicism and what Catholics believe. I am glad to answer any questions that you might have — but refuting anti-Catholic polemics is not a pleasant thing at all.
