I was raised catholic. And I too no longer have a denomination. For someone non denominational as you ,,,you seem to put a lot of faith in catholosism. which is OK,,,,just the way you came across during our discussion. My whole family is catholic. and I love every one of them like family. ).
Pete, sorry you were raised to believe a certain thing and it is difficult for you to see things differently. I have attended several different churches, studied several different types of religions, both Christian and non Christian. I have never been a member of any. I have no religious agenda. I'm as non-denominational as one can get, but I believe in one God and that Jesus is my Messiah.
