  1. First of all, thank you so very much for the feedback, I know my paper wasn't explained very well at the beginning and needed some direction. I appreciate the time you took to scrutinize every part of my essay. Let me clarify, the LGBT community is an example I use to get my point across and is not the main subject. The main subject: Leading others to Christ by demonstrating the compassion and understanding He extends to us by having an open mind when approaching another person. And properly judging that person after getting to know who they are and if they want to follow the path of righteous
  2. (Hebrews 10:10 and 10:14). So during the Last Supper He was imitating His death, the bread representing His body and the wine representing His blood. I understand He sacrificed Himself to save us from our sin on the cross but what was the purpose of the Last Supper? Was that also a sacrifice of some sort or was it so we would remember the event? Why do we remember the event and what's the reason for imitation?
  3. I have always accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior but have recently been led astray which is why I’m here. Thank you for your guidance! @Salyan Would you also still answer my follow up questions, I would greatly appreciate it. It would benefit me knowing the difference between being blessed and being holy. If being holy means to be without sin, then what would it mean to be blessed?
  4. @E Morales Thanks for your explanation, I will accept Jesus as my one and only Savior!
  5. So being holy means to be without sin?
  6. Luke 1:26-31 “And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, an
  7. Hi, I just want to know if Mary is holy, I’m not asking to debate. She was blessed by God and was the mother of Jesus. Since she was set apart by God, does that make her holy?
  8. So we imitate The Last Super to remember the occasion while Catholics believe they are actually given the body and blood of Christ?
  9. What is it in the Catholic Church and do we Baptists have a Holy Communion ourselves? Does the Bible say anything about this?
  10. My name is Angel and I'm from North Carolina in the US. I joined to ask a question concerning Catholics and Baptists. I am a Baptist and was curious about the Catholic faith but have decided that it's not for me. I wanted to see the similarities between us as well as the differences but I now understand where I stand in my faith. Although I know where I stand, I would like some help in reaffirming my beliefs. I never wavered from God, my core beliefs were still there I just wanted to see if there were other ways I could serve Him better. Thank you for listening, hope to hear some advice. Pleas
  11. @Salyan Thank you for clearing that up, as I said before, I do not believe in the catholic church, I was just asking out of curiosity. @Invicta @DaveW @Jim_Alaska and @Salyan Thank you for replying and your insight, you've helped me immensely.
  12. @Jim_Alaska Wouldn't Mary technically be mother of God since Jesus was God on earth? And God created man and women thus God would still be above her as He created her and was also her Heavenly Father. I don't believe in the Pope or hierarchy of the Catholic Church, I was just trying to explain what was explained to me, I have some Catholic friends and asked them about their faith. They did tell me that they pray to saints and Mary due to them being in the direct presence of God and could pray to God for them which would be intercession(It's kind of like when we pray to our loved ones who
  13. "Catholics have a man as the head of the church, a man who claims to be as god on earth." This is not the case, Catholics have a head because Jesus Himself appointed Saint Peter to watch over His church and the Pope is a direct line of Popes of the past to Jesus himself. I may be a little off on that and although I don't have all the details or an in depth knowledge of the structure of the Catholic church, I do know that worship is for God alone in the Catholic church. Furthermore, the emphasis on Mother Mary is not worship, just honor because God honored her first. Check Luke 1:26-28. Then ag
  14. Hi, I’m a Baptist and I’ve been studying Catholicism for a few days, I don’t want to convert, I just wanted to learn more on why they believe what they do and to see if there are similarities between the two faiths, we’re all Christians afterall. I would also like to hear from Baptists, if theres any, that converted from Catholicism. Why did you convert and did you find what you were looking for? This is an open friendly discussion, so any questions or answers are welcome! God bless!
