Hi all,

It is my honor to have become one of your newest members. I decided to join two large Christian forums to find and offer inspiration from/to other Christians. Entering heavy disputes is not my strongest point, I prefer to seek the unity among Christians. On the day of my birth I was baptized in a Roman Catholic church. In one forum I saw Catholicism mentioned as a “sect”, but I hope for a more open-minded attitude here. In my daily life I get along extremely well with Christians of quite different denominations.

Among things important for me as a Christian are: the continuous search for inspiration, both from within and from without; room for the mystery that, for me as a human being, is associated with Godly matters; and, as I said, the unity among Christians. I am worried about the negative approach to Christianity nowadays, and happy if I feel the presence of God. I worship Jesus Christ and think a lot of His suffering for us. For me, prayer is very important, as is meditation. If I make it empty in myself, the Spirit typically fills it. That is how I like to see it.

The remainder of today I am bound to find little time for answering your reactions, but I count on there being a tomorrow. In God I trust.

Welcome to CC. :) As long as you don't push catholic heresy here, you won't be breaking the rules. Catholicism is a subject better suited for the bible forum, not the Intro forum. :)

I feel welcome already. @blue_ladybug, what I said was certainly not meant to start a discussion about my denomination here. All I did was telling somewhat about myself. I have read the rules you are referring to and I'm sure I won't break them. In those rules I did not find the words respect nor denomination but happily it is in my nature to show respect toward others and their denominations, transcending that level. Since your reaction was allowed by the moderator I try to interpret your reaction to a newcomer and his denomination as positive, since, with all those enemies out there, the last thing we Christians need is division from within our own ranks. Christ reminds us of the vulnerability of an empire that is divided in itself. Let's not seek division but common ground. Well now, my introduction may be complete this way. I've said more than I intended. God bless all of us.

Always room for one more on this site. Regarding entering heavy disputes you might want to consider not visiting the Bible Discussion Forum. I was baptized and raised in the Catholic church too but not have attended weekly mass for years due to the many scriptural conflicts with a lot of the Catholic doctrine and practices. I don't believe at all that the Catholic church is a sect but as I have mentioned, I just simply stopped attending mass. Looking forward to your posts. Glad to have you onboard with us. Welcome to CC.

Thank you for your advice, @tourist. I'll be careful in that group then. I haven't had time to look well in the groups yet

Glad you are here, welcome indeed! I worked for a Catholic Priest, Fr Michael Manning, in a Catholic seminary and they made me feel right at home and it was a joy! God bless you.
