Catholic: Hey man, I really appreciate your zeal for Christ. I was wondering, though, have you ever read the Catechism or been to a Mass?
Anthony: I was at a funeral once, but that’s about it. I don’t know much about the Catechism because I just try and stick with the Bible.
Catholic: Well, I don’t want to be awkward, but if I were you I would want to at least take a look. I mean, I assume you think we Catholics are saved by good works and worship Mary, but that goes completely against Church teaching. And the Mass is really beautiful. It has a ton of scripture and a rich history. It’s cool for you to be Protestant, but Catholics are half the world’s Christians. Just make sure you understand the religion before making too many assumptions.
Anthony: I never thought of it that way. Thanks, I’ll do that. (Or, start arguing. I guess we’ll never know! 🙂
