5 Reasons To Be Catholic

1. Because Jesus Christ Founded The Catholic Church.

We see in Matthew 16:18 that Christ establishes a Church on St. Peter the Apostle. St. Peter is the first Pope of the Catholic Church. For 2000 years there is a line of Popes from Peter to St. Francis today teaching the same teachings for 2000 years.

As a Christian, do you want to be part of the Church Christ founded in the Bible?

2. Because Other Christian denominations and doctrine are Man Made.

When we look at other Christian Churches, they are all founded by men. Yes they use scripture but they use their own interpretation of scripture. Whether it is Non-Denominational Christian, Baptist, Evangelical and all Non-Catholic Christians. All of these are man made using their own personal interpretations of what scripture says. That is why there are thousands of different protestant denominations that all disagree on doctrine.

By the way, Non-denominational Christian is a protestant denomination.

Now ask yourself when logically selecting a Christian Church with true doctrine, would you prefer the Christian Church with true doctrine founded by God or men?

3. Because Christ inspired the Catholic Church to write and compile the New Testament.

When dialoguing with our protestant (Non-Catholic) Christian brothers and sisters they always turn to the Bible. This is a great thing. The only problem (for them) is that the New Testament is a Catholic Document. The New Testament was written and then compiled (Canonized) by the Catholic Church by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. This same Holy Spirit also interprets the scriptures.

Now would you prefer to follow the interpretations by the same Church that wrote and compiled the New Testament or follow men that came thousands of years later and use their own personal interpretation of what the Bible says?

4. Because Non-Catholic Christians are Missing 7 books from their Old Testament.

Non-Catholic Christians are missing 7 books from their Old Testament. These books are Baruch, Sirach, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, and the Wisdom of Solomon, plus portions of Esther and Daniel.

Jesus Christ and the Apostles handed these books to the first Christians to preach and teach others. It was 1500 years later that Martin Luther and the reformers decided what Christ did by passing these books to the first Christians was no longer valid and removed these books.

The question is, who do you follow regarding these 7 books? Christ or Martin Luther?

5. The Eucharist / Communion

At the Last Supper, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins." (Mt 26:26-28, Mk 14:22-24, Lk 22:17-20, 1 Cor 11:23-25)

Our fellow Non-Catholic Christian brothers and sisters are taught that it is not Christs body or blood, but merely a symbol or spiritual which is not what Christ taught. As we see in scripture, Christ clearly teaches it is His Body and Blood in the form of Bread and Wine.

Do you believe Jesus in the Bible or men today that disagree with Jesus?

I am so humbled by my your comments, my faith and desire to become more involved in my belief that God is alive within the Catholic Church. Experience Israel and walk where Jesus walked and you will encounter why you are born and bred a Catholic as I am. God bless you all and keep on following the one and only true Church born out off the blessings of Christ. Go well

As a child, I attended different churches, but always felt the Catholic Church was the TRUE church. I’m so glad I was baptized in the Catholic church and still attend faithfully. We are members of the ONLY apostolic church, and it WAS founded by Jesus, not mere men or women.

As a cradle Catholic I thought I was close to the Church until some Protestant friends of mine attacked my Catholic Faith.
I was unable to rebut their attacks and started researching answers which led me to more, and more, and more of the wonderfulness and truth of the Church that Jesus Christ himself established here on earth for us.
All the pieces fit, and the Catholic Church is the only place where we can go to obey Jesus’ command of John 6:53, and participate in the One and Only New Covenant between God and man authorized by Jesus in Luke 22:20.
One of my protestant “attackers” has found his way into the Church.
I pray the other will find his way soon.
Thank You Jesus for the Gift of Your Church, and being here for us in the Holy Eucharist.

I’ve studied religions formally. In almost every case, there is a missing ingredient. Catholicism has no missing elements. It is the fullest most complete expression of Christianity both historically and spiritually.

I am a cradle Catholic…I have loved my church all of my life to the point of being scrupulous. In 1971, I had a powerful euphony that gifted me with a love for scripture like never before. I was filled with the Holy Spirit with love for the Father and the Son as the Word came alive to me. Everything about my Catholic faith was filled with new meaning and clarity. I am very grateful for the gifts of our best theologians today being awaken to becoming Catholic and sharing what their Protestant teachings had taught them. They yearned for the fullness of their faith and found it in the lives of the early church fathers of the beginnings of the Church of Christ and the process it went through to encapsulate truth through the teaching authority given by Christ to its leadership. My church is not perfect…it’s Builder, Jesus Christ, is perfect and He gave us every gift, help, and support to lead us to His Way, Truth, and Life.

I am Catholic because it was founded by Jesus Christ and he is present and gives himself to us in the Eucharist. I love the Mass which is straight out of the Bible and is our opportunity to give ourselves to Jesus. I love the Sacraments which are also straight out of the Bible. Finally, I love Mother Mary, who Jesus gave us to be our mother while he was on the cross. She is a wonderful and loving Mother.

I was baptized Catholic. I was raised Catholic. I attended Catholic education. The Catholic is the only true Christian religion started by our Lord Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago. All other religion are started by other people who don’t believe in God.

My mother dragged us through Mormon churches and Baptist churches while I was growing up. When I was a teenager I attended a Baptist Church with friends but was never fulfilled like they were. When I grew up I attended a Catholic Mass with friends and felt like I was “home”. I love the Mass and everything it encompasses.
