Is it wrong for a catholic to attend a christian church? No priest, just pastor
sort by best latest
When i was young, I had attended a christian church. It was totally different from our catholic church. All they talk about is Jesus, Jesus and Jesus, no Virgin mary and no God. Why?
That would be a question to ask someone who attends that church.
I can respond to the "no talk about Virgin Mary" question. In a non-Catholic Christian Church, we do not pray to Mary. We only pray to God, and usually add "in the name of Jesus" - which is a reference to John 14:13.
Most Catholics, when asked if they are Christian, will say that they are Catholic. Also, there are Christian denominations that are not Protestant: LDS, Unitarian, Eastern Orthodox.
I guess you are right there. But is it true that protestant and christian believed that Virgin mary should not be praise or prayed to?
I can only speak about my personal faith, with is Lutheran. Lutherans hold Mary in high esteem, but they do not pray "directly" to her for intercession between us and God. Yet, she has a soul full of grace, and is praised for that.
thanks for your advice
All christian and protestant church welcome everybody, even the muslims
Glad to hear that, as long we can walk out as a catholic, I feel better
I got a bad experience from a christian when I was young. My classmate is a christian while I am a catholic, she said that Virgin Mary was a whore, a bitch who gave birth to Jesus Christ. That is why christians do not pray to Virgin mary.
That was just wrong. Hope you realize that not all Christians are like that.
Peachy, I am sad that you got a distorted view of Christian Churches. While we do not pray to the Virgin Mary, she is still considered a holy person. We sing positive songs about her at Christmas (e.g., Silent Night). Your classmate is misguided.
I'm sorry about that peachy, That girl was definitely not a Christian. She would never have said those things if she were. Please don't think that a true Christian would ever say that about Mary.
That is why I am negative about Christian or protestant churches. How could my classmate said such an awful word against Virgin Mary?? Anyway, until now, she still insisted that Jesus mother is a whore. So mad at her (my friend)
Peachy, your "friend" is just making things up about Mary. No true Christian would call her a "whore." Please don't be mad. Just be glad you got correct information.
Again, I am sorry about that girl. She is not your friend. She is no ones friend. I wouldn't listen to her if I were you. She will have to answer to God Himself and Jesus for her words.
Thank you all of you great christians for being positive. I don't speak to her anymore. Such a shame
It is not me. My brother who has OCD, had turned to christian church instead of our catholic church. He is saying negative things about catholic church now. bad ones
I am sorry that is happening, peachy. I am certain that the Pastor a the Christian Church would not approve of that behavior. You may want to speak to him or her.
Oh I tried, he said that I am one of the bunch lousy scums of Catholics. He said Christians are the holiest. So sad. How did the pastor teach him??
