Love these kind of e-mails: Back to the Catholic Church

by Steve Ray on August 26, 2014

From England:

Thank you Steve. My sister in-law was Catholic and she turned away to be a new-born Christian [Fundamentalist Protestant]. A lot of these people got round her and constantly told her she was going to hell unless she gets born again and she then tried to convert me and my wife.

She successfully made us doubt the Catholic religion but then we found you and listened to what you had to say and I feel stronger than ever about my Catholic faith. Last night I showed my sister-in-law some of your clips on YouTube. We just told her listen to what you had to say then make your mind up after watching.

She turned back to the Catholic faith. Thank God!

If these people lived in the first century and taught lies like this about being “born-again” and that baptism doesn’t save you, against the true presnce of Christ in the Eucharist, etc they would be called heretics. Why is it that they are now called Christians? Why not call a spade a spade like St. Ignatius did or the other Church Fathers that faught so hard against heresies?

Steve, I know you don’t have to post this, but if you have any time maybe you could email me and help me understand this.

I have the same question as Mike. God forgive me but sometimes I just want to pull a St. Nicholas and slug them. I saw our Catholic faith and ultimately my whole family, the domestic church, slowly but unceasingly undermined by a sister that, like the sister-in-law above fell away from the Church to become “born again”. My whole family has been destroyed and does not talk to each other because rather than just leave the Church, she turned around and attacked it relentlessly, and, quite honestly, nobody knew enough catechism to correct her lies. Why do we allow them to be called Christians when they do not accept Christ’s teachings? They don’t want Christ on His terms, they want Him on theirs. I realize those born into protestant families don’t know any different and believe what they’ve been taught, but the fact is they’ve been taught lies and heresies, but we call them Christian anyway. I just don’t understand that.
