I am sincerely glad to hear that as your posts,make that church sound awful.Seriously.<quoted text>
To clarify your comments: I DO NOT hate the Bible only Church that I was connected with for over 35 years--despite what you might think....In fact--I am thankful for being raised in my bible only Church because the more that I studied sacred scripture (along with researching and studying over 2000 years of Church History, the more I begin to come to the knowledge and realize the TRUTH of The TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and that HE was the one who initiated, formed and authenticated ONLY ONE TRUE (Universal) Church and it was Catholic!!!
In addition, my family still attend that bible only Church in California and whenever on a visit, I will attend Church with them----however---always making sure that it does not interfere with worshipping Jesus Christ at both daily and Sunday Mass.......The main difference is that the Catholic Church is the ONLY CHURCH that possesses the Fullness of the Faith and the Fullness of the TRUTH in Jesus Christ (only in and through) HIS One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church---which open up to the Fullness in "growing in the faith and Salvation of Our Lord...
I am grateful for the nuns that taught me about Jesus and His life. Despite what anyone thinks, I don't hate your new Church..I posted a long post to USA which says what I believe regarding the RCC. I believe many Catholics love Jesus dearly ...but that does not mean others,do not believe in and love Him as,much.
I believe God uses us all to spread His word. And we should be closer. Some of my family is Catholic also.
Again glad you don't hate your old Church
