.....Most catholics as Muslims, Jews etc, are so because they were indoctrinated from childhood not to use their own intelligence to decide what belief to follow but to become what mom and dad wanted them to become just like them. Organized religion is more about family-hand-me-down tradition than the actual belief itself.<quoted text>
Most are born Christians...I have not heard that.
Romans 10:9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Confess and Believe is a choice Mikey...You may not be a catholic anymore but you are still think like one.
....If Christianity/Islam relied on conversions only to grow the faithful numbers, Christianity/Islam beliefs would have died out centuries ago.
