I ran across a problem today. Most people I know, or come in contact with are Catholic. I witness to people and I get either the cold shoulder, or I am what I am etc... Well my cousin called me this afternoon and I was not home so she left a message. I called her back but she was not home. She again called me and went on about how she was out doing the CCD thing. I bragged on how involved I am in my church and how much I loved being there etc.. She told me she was more involved now in her church because her daughter would soon make her sacrament. She went on talking about how much she liked her Catholic church and bragged about how her husband was both Prodestant and Catholic. ( HMMM ) Then in the next breath said if it were not for her daughter getting ready for her sacrament she probibly wouldn't go to church at all. she also stated that she believes what is in the bible. So here are a few things I asked her. If in fact she does read the bible and believes it. #1. Show me anywhere in the bible that it states your child must make these sacrements? ANSWER: She didn't know #2. Show me where in the bible it says we must confess our sins to man and man alone and not God? ANSWER: She didn't know. #3. If you were to die today could you say for certain, 100% that you would go to heaven? ANSWER: Yes That is where I froze. I was able to elaborate on the first 2 questions, but most people answer the third as " They think, or they hope they will go to heaven. So the only thing I could think of to do was ask: Why do you know you are going to heaven? ANSWER: Because I feel I have been good, not only in treating people but doing the "church thingy" too! We all know that being good is a part of it, and the " church thingy" too, but we also know it is a whole lot more. She went on to say her church teaches about God. And I challenged that. I asked her to tell me what she knows. She couldn't. I have been a Catholic for 30 years so I know for a fact she don't know about God. So here is my question to anyone who wants to answer. Since I was so stumped on that 3rd question, I was taken back, how would some of you have handled it? SBG31 P.S. she ended the conversation with saying she has to go play a game of OUJI!!!!!
