And if both Christians go to the bible to find the answers and not the "organizations" directive. To know christ is to be a christian. But, the catholic churches independent doctrine as to how to follow Gods word becomes the problem. It is absolute and not to be questioned. This is not scripture. I am a baptist and I married a catholic a few months ago.
He is saved and is strong beleiver, we felt it was god's will for us to be together. However now he refuses to leave the catholic church and i feel suffocated without free worship that i am used to. This is putting a great strain on our marriage.
Can a Catholic be a Born-Again Christian?
I don't know what to do. The Gospel says this! That is the gospel of Christ. I wonder why we spend time seperating ourselves with minor differences than building a united force and spreading the word so that those who don't know Christ can be saved. No denomination is more superior, when we think this way our behaviour becomes cultic. Jesus Christ will come and judge the hearts of men, so lets all work on our hearts.
Almost two years ago a certain "Robert" Asked: You may end up filling her head with nonsense same as you seem to have in your brain. I was first water baptized soon after salvation and then around 2 years later, I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with tongues. I know others who got baptized in the Holy Spirit the minute they accepted Jesus into their hearts, before they even had to time get water baptized. Of course, they went on to do that also in obedience to God's Word.
If your intention was to question the baptism in the Holy Ghost there are many Pentecostal sites that explain it at length. Holly, When I respond to you I hope you think I'm not being mean or trying to prove you wrong, but everything I say is from scripture and scripture alone You say you have been water and holy spirit baptized, but in Eph.
So you can't have both has to be just one I would like to see some scripture on your basis of faith Thank you so much for your concern Craig. But fear not, for I have also been water baptized as well as baptized in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues for many, many years now. I truly appreciate your concern though, blessings to you. Be you all not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: And what concord has Christ with Belial?
And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? As I read these statements I think it is realy sad that we as one body in christ are so devided. Look guys religeon came to seperate us. Jesus died that our relationship with god could be re established. Take a good look at his character and as the word says "pray for one another" that we all have the character of Jesus, willing to die to self that others may have life through their relationship with God. Oh and leave religeon alone.
All Christians know that Jesus is the Savior of the World. Eloy, neither I nor any other Catholic has stated that Mary is our Savior so your reply is an attempt to inject suspicions plus it's out of line. Robyn, if Christian love is what we see expressed here by some "Christians" then I don't want any part of it.
Holly, When you read Romans did you skip over chapter 6 where your baptized into his death??
You say your saved, but I would go back to Acts chapt. I am not Roman Catholic. But I agree with you! All Christians are taught love. Its not about what we are taught, its what we practice Many people know to do right but refuse to do it.
When we are led by the Holy Spirit to practice what we are taught in truthfulness, can we truly say we are Christians followers of Christ. I have to agree too. Lisa, I've never had doubts about our Catholic Church but reading many of the posts here, they reaffirmed the seriosness and true Church of Christ which is our Church. We are taught LOVE - we don't gossip and curse others like others do us.
Stay put, sweet Lady and sleep with a clear conscience. It is shocking isn't it? It's like Hitler all over again! If we let these people get their way, we might end up like those slaughtered by Hitler again. So you are right.. A very strange world we live in isn't it? After reading so many blogs I conclude the following: There are Christians namely Catholics, There are Hypocrites namely most of the rest. When I read this blog, I wondered if it was neccessary at all, but reading the comments left me stunned.
I need to understand something: Are Catholics not Christians? If we Christians behave like this, how are we to attact pagans and non-christians? Remember even christ dined with sinners like us and encouraged us to do same. As born again christians we should rather encourage rather than discriminate. It is not healthy.
Christian To Marry A Catholic Blog
Thanks for your concern about my salvation There is a revival going on in the city of Oneonta Alabama at the Catholic church hispanics are getting baptized in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues it is sweeping the whole city their services look like old time pentecostal services with shouting hands raised falling out in the Spirit, I can't tell their church from a charismatic church.
Caring what you call attacking I call defending His Truth. So, what are your beliefs? The Catholic Church does not forbid Catholics from marrying people who are not Catholic. It has been the practice of the Church to marry non-Catholics and Catholics for quite some time. The Church refers to these types of marriages as mixed-marriages. Sometimes a future spouse will choose to go through a process called RCIA to become Catholic prior to marriage, but it is not necessary to become Catholic before marrying a Catholic.
However, express permission of the local bishop is necessary. One of the reasons that the Church exists is to safeguard the souls of those in its care.
If a Catholic insists on marriage to a non-Catholic, the Church allows it, but wants to protect the soul of the Catholic in the marriage by making sure the non-Catholic understands the moral teaching and obligations of the Catholic party and assure that the Catholic is not in a position hostile to his or her faith. The Catholic Church calls the union of a Catholic to someone who has not been baptized a disparity of cult.
In the above example the two people are baptized Christians of different confessions or denominations , but a non-baptized person is not a part of the Christian family. When it involves someone who has not been baptized then the marriage requires an express dispensation from the bishop in order for the union to be considered valid. Scripture tells us that the unbelieving spouse is made holy through the believing spouse 1 Cor. Sacramentally in marriage the spouses are the conduits of grace to each other and in a mixed-marriage of disparity of cult the Catholic is a conduit of grace to the non-believer.
If this leads to a free conversion of belief by the non-believer then the church rejoices. This can be very difficult and trying, but can be overcome by mutual respect. A marriage to a non-baptized person can be especially difficult because of the greater chasm in religious belief. In either case the disparities between faiths can lead to tension and gradually religious indifference. Humility and open and honest communication about expectations and the practical side of a mixed-marriage is important to making it succeed.
