    THIS was the fact that convinced me at 25 to make a decision for Christ. Mary’s situation as well makes me certain. I cant stand to see my kid get shots. she could have lied to save her son, and she didn’t. She too endured much for Him to accomplish His mission.

        No, just a man with eyes to see and ears to hear. I never claim that only protestants know the truth of Christ. Some expansive areas of Catholicism are questionable in my mind, but I always keep in mind that it’s Christ’s death and exiting the tomb that matters. I am married to a man raised w/ Catholic beliefs who maintains them despite being a member of my Baptist church. I was the regular attender, so he joined me. He questions some of our tendencies, and I (and his brother) question some of Catholicism’s. Dogma is a small thing to me. There are MANY protestant groups that DONT teach the death and blood of Christ. I more disagree with the sanitized version of Christianity. My hubby knows I wont be praying any “Hail Mary’s”, and I know the Southern Baptists are mistaken in their view that all intake of fermented liquid and dancing are wrong. We drink a little wine occasionally, I dance for fun, and he doesn’t expect “Hail Mary” from me. I’m glad different groups of Christians can get along better than different groups of that “religion of peace.” Have a nice day.

          You, too. In fact, I’ll be having a glass of wine shortly as I watch the U.S. Open. Great to hear from you.
