I love this girl and only for me to convert to a Christian is not what I want. I do go to church on the weekends and I know that Catholics are more open minded about what they can and cannot do. Even I know Christians also bend the rules and things go under the radar. They smoke, drink, party and do things everyday normal people do. But I would never accept being asked to change my religion all for a girl who would probably end up being my future wife. I'd rather her become Catholic and I know it probably won't look good on her families side but she should honor her man and follow him. This is just a thought that's been running thru my mind after the I found out her dads a pastor.

Hmmm, I would change to become a Christian. The only difference is that Christians focus more on God and not on insignificant things like praying to the saints and Mary. Christians follow the bible and not customs like the Catholics. Also, Christians pray directly to God and don't need a man (priest) as a middleman. And the most important thing is that Christians are born again,(LIKE THE BIBLE COMMANDS US) I use to be Catholic, and never did I hear the priest tell us that we needed to be born again, WHICH IS IN THE CATHOLIC BIBLE TOO! I didn't believe it, so I went and looked it up! This is really more about getting into heaven, which the bible says, IF YOU ARE NOT BORN AGAIN, YOU CANNOT GET INTO HEAVEN.

let me clear something up for you. Remember, NOT ALL PEOPLE WHO ATTEND CHURCH ARE CHRISTIANS! So the ones that smoke, drink and party are not Christians. Remember, just going to church doesn't make you a Christian. You're putting all people who attend Church into one group. Hope that helps.

Regardless I'm not going to change my religion just because you say so. I have my beliefs and you have yours. You have to respect other people's choices because for one you are no one to say that your religion is right. Two you sure damn ain't no messenger of god. Three no one asked for your Christian point of views on what the bible says and even like that you are not sure if you're going to heaven.

Not saying my religion is right! Actually, I don't even claim any religion. The holy bible is all I need. But don't take my word for it! Look in your own bible.... see what it says about being born again. I Don't expect anyone to take my word for it! Just read John Chapter 3. It's in black and white!:) The language that you use like "damn" shows that you are not that committed to your faith anyway, so why not change to your girlfriend's! LOL

Actually, your girlfriend is making a big mistake and has not been reading her bible! If her dad is a Pastor, she should know that the bible states that she should NOT marry an NON-believer. You are catholic and have many different beliefs that don't coincide with the holy bible. Look at how you talk by cussing! A christian girl should not be attracted to someone with that vocabulary. So your whole story sounds fishy. sorry

You are telling others to take your word because you are using exclamation points to prove a point across. Not good my friend for being a devoted one of the bible. Tsk tsk tsk.

how are you going to say your are not willing to change your own religion but expect her to change her's a relationship is a partnership you shouldn't ask your other half to do something that your not willing to do yourself.... and honstly if different religions are such a deal breaker you shouldn't date anyone who isn't in your religion or only girls that want to convert i offer you my best wish and i hope everything works out for you

Normally I would agree with you, but this girl is a supposed Christian! Christians are commanded by the bible to stay away from non-believers like Catholics. She should have never started messing with him in the first place!!!

My advice is for you to compromise or you might lose your girl. You say, that you would never accept being asked to change your religion, but this is exactly what you want to ask her to do. It doesn't seem that you see her as an equal. Why don't you each keep your religions & have her father marry you. My spouse is Protestant & I'm Catholic, we married by a justice of the peace. I attended both services. As long as you believe in God, that is what's important. The kids should grow up with whichever religion is practiced most in the home.In my case, it was Catholic.

Pepe it seems that no matter what we suggest or say you are still going to one day marry this girl. Will there be problems down the road? BIG TIME. You see Christians don't worship statues,the virgin mary,priests, and we don't confess our sins to the middle man. We speak directly to God.So if you bring any of those relics to your home your christian wife will be unhappy with you.And marriage is about being and staying happy, and respect.So don't ask her to change to please you.As for Catholics being "open minded" about what they worship or to who, is more absent-minded than open minded.No religion is perfect and neither are people,but when someone posts a topic asking for advise then we try to give the best answer we can. It's not to convey or convert you to another religion.Keep your religion but don't use it as a title..live it. We Christians do.

Well by your own ignorance you made up your mind. Catholics are one of the most Bible ignorant people on earth. Lazy as they would rather put their trust in men and religion than the Word of the Lord, which they say they believe but then accept what is contrary to it from men.

Now say after me,Christianity is not a religion, it is a rebirth by faith in Jesus Christ and led by His WORD by The Holy Spirit. The Bible says call no man on earth father for One is your Father whom is in Heaven. Catholic call priests father and Pope Holy Father, now is it impossible for you to understand they Bible says not too?

Also it says no man cometh unto the Father but by me, yet Catholics are taught its ok to go through many including Mary whom in doing so you dishonor, even Mary obeyed the Word of the Lord. And then the Catholic church nominates saints when the Bible makes it very clear those who are reborn are Saints not by the proclamation of a Pope! Do yourself a big favor and for once read a Bible.

The Bible also commands Christians not to be unequally yoked together with non-believers so it is your GF that should be questioning herself as to being your GF.
