Christian dating a catholic
There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he's waiting to spring on you at the right moment. When it comes to God, I'm pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn't do.
Ok I have heard that a Christian must only date a fellow Christian. They say that Catholicism is the same as Christianity but thing is I don't know so much about Catholicism. O.o Ty, Actually, Catholicism started in the year 313 when the Roman Emperor, Constantine, when he issued the Edict of Milan.
There were professing Christians who were not Catholic from the time of Christ until then, and since then.
As a consequence, the respective teaching on the way of salvation is different. Evangelicals believe in Christ for salvation - and in nothing and nobody else, nor do they rely on any merits of our own; whereas Catholics, in addition to faith, base their salvation on the reception of baptism and other sacraments, good works and penance.
Evangelicals seek to live a godly life in grateful response to the grace of God; Catholics perform works to merit the graces needed to attain eternal life.
Now, I get emails from singles across the country looking for guidance on who and how to date.Answer: I am deeply concerned for you and your friend.I wish I can tell you to go ahead with your plans, but I would be irresponsible to do so.We are concerned that we will not fully agree on important things if we consider marriage.What do you think, is right or wrong if a Catholic and a Christian were to marry?
