Why I am a Catholic.
I think most Catholics would have seen this video. It is one of my favourite ones on youtube.
Over the weekend one of my friends on facebook left a status update saying that the Pope is the Antichrist.
I am not the only Catholic friend that this friend has so quite a few of us challenged the statement.
This status update ended up becoming a discussion about the Catholic church and their beliefs especially about the bible alone vs. the bible and oral tradition.
At the end of the discussion, I offered to send two people that were asking questions a copy of the book, surprised by truth. I asked them both to pm their addresses to me so that I can send it out to them.
I know that one of the two I have offered the book to reads my blog so I really hope she takes up my offer. I think the journey towards heaven is a long long road. We all make choices that hopefully lead us to God but we all stumble too. I know with the help of others through prayer, we can all become better Christians. I will be praying for both these friends and hope you will all join with me too. I also ask them for their prayers for me.
