Are Catholics and Pentecostal two different religions? May God free us from these religious segregation. He isn't even a Muslim and you are scared, Even among Christianity? What have we reduced ourselves to?

Honestly it's quite sad.

I'm Catholic but I don't have issues with people of other denominations. I even roll with them well to exchange ideas. But it seems most people have a problem with Catholicism, because people hate and fear what they don't understand.

Well, our case is almost the same, I was born a catholic converted into pentcostalism as a child when my parents left the catholic church. I even left the Christianity entirely at a certain point because religion became a complete bore to me. To cut the long story short, I fell helplessly in love with the most wonderful girl I have ever met in all my years. She is a catholic (hardcore) the only thing that stood as a stumbling block for me marrying her was the same thing I ran away from (religion). I have agreed to convert into a catholic to marry her(people who know me are still amazed at my decision) why because she is worth every bit of it. Hell will go cold if religion would be what would stop me from marrying her.
I shifted grounds because she was worth it to me. The question here is this, is he worth it? So you won't wake up tomorrow with a serious case of had I known. Think well and stand by what you have decided.


Note: Me converting is just to consecrate the marriage in the catholic church, after that, to your tents o Isreal. But anything can still happen down the line, since I practically don't even have a church in the first place.
grin My Nigga...much respect


I'm currently going through the same thing but my babe is a Pentecostal member.

Some times i wonder what makes you pentecostals say derogatory things agsinst the true church of Christ.
So been a catholic means going to hell ?
The church that Christ Instituted,the church that produced the bible ,the mystical body of Christ .this church you ridicule n blaspheme against .

You think you can blackmail us with your atheist orientation?

Continue with atheism until it gets too late...

Na today?


I think the chap is right.

Isn't it funny that Christians still debate amongst themselves? Pentecostals are at near loggerheads with the Catholics? How do you expect atheists to take it serious? When we can't even love ourselves.

See this one wanting to dump her Fiancé because he's Catholic. Are they not both same Christians? Don't they believe in the same God and His tenets? So why should something as trifle as Church doctrine get in the way of marriage?

I asked one of my deeper life friend if she can marry a catholic and she said no i asked why and i didnt get any reasonable response. we seem to forget we are are humans what is this force thats always trying to differentiate us?
a friend of mine has been battling same challenge, the lady he wants to marry refused to accept his proposal except he changes to Catholic, the lady's mother insisted the guy must have to change before they would give there daughter out to him. They finally broke last week.

Thanks all.
I love him so much, he do love me also
I have told him about his church severally, he said that I'm telling story until i comes in as his wife, he will decide if I will go to my church or not.
He is a serious catholic member, charismatic member.
I am So confused because my family and church members told me, he won't change because of him rather I will b the one. .
I don't want to leave him.
I don't just know what to do!

When u started dating him, did u not forsee all this..
Sorry to say, u ve short sight..

Planning settling down but she is a catholic as well as d parent, I just swerved immediately cous I can't even get wedded there talkless bowing/prostrating to an image.

Why someone would type something this offensive and unreasonable on an online forum like Nairaland is very distressing.

I'm sure you don't know 2 rats about the Catholic Church on a personal level. You have never attended 1 mass all your life or gone for Cathecism classes. Probably someone told you "oh the worship Mary". You just swallowed it hook, line and sinker. Even my Priest reiterated yestermorn that us Catholics don't worship Mary. Never have, never will. So where idiots who get such fallacies get it from still surprises me.

So being a Catholic would send you to hell? Is that it? Obviously you have no idea how much Catholicism has impacted to Christianity. All the Pentecostal churches joined together can't do 1%...oh, apart from Tithe thing. Our Priest told us that tithing is alien to Christianity. We borrowed it from the Jews. The reason why we tithe is to get money to take care of the church. He didn't tell us stories of how God told him tithing is compulsory or if you don't tithe you'd be poor or attach blessings to tithe. I don't know what Pentecostal pastor can be that honest.

But I don't blame y'all for discriminating Catholics. To be a Catholic demands a certain level of intelligence. You'd be exposed to basics of philosophy and theology even as a normal member. You get to convince yourself of certain facts, and not just because your pastor told you so.

Lol. So go on, hate some more.

Re: Pentecostal Getting Married To A Catholic by Handsomecole(m): 12:30am On Jan 02
If there is any church where the holy Spirit is taught it is the Catholic Church. Even the catholics make the sign of the cross most in everything going they do "In the name of the Father , the Son and of the "Holy Spirit ". It is yhe only church that celebrates the body and blood of christ everyday around the world. My dear the Catholic church is the origin of the Christianity that begot whatever church u attend. You should be happy and it's indeed a great opportunity for you .

You shoulda known better.

It's not even about you going to his church now.

I'm sure you'd like them to worship with you.

That household would be religiously divided.

Look beyond the "love" biko, and put on your thinking cap.

What do you mean by winning?

Christianity and Islam have nothing in common so I cant understand what winning means to you.

A born again Christian has clear instructions/precepts succinctly outlined for them in the Bible. The Christian vocation is much more than winning a popularity/likability contest.

It is about having the conviction that one's conduct is pleasing Jesus, The Author of the profession.

Believers are wont to obey Jesus at the risk of not being darlings of the world.

It's pretty sad. You can imagine what they would have told this lady about the Catholic church but laziness won't let her do research. When this issue of tithing came up, I wanted to do the right thing and did a research and found the truth for myself. So why not do a research if the Catholic church believes in the holy spirit before you conclude. And mind you, its not denomination that guarantees your place in heaven it is grace and how you lived your life as a Christian.
Re: Pentecostal Getting Married To A Catholic by ogechijohn(m): 12:38am On Jan 02
The matter of the Holy Spirit is not the case. The issues are:
1. They ask Saints to pray for them
2. They make graven images
3. The Pope has more authority than the Holy scripture I.e the Bible
4. Difference in critical doctrines pertaining to eternal matters

Consider the above, and make a swift decision. Thanks dear

Re: Pentecostal Getting Married To A Catholic by nobilie: 12:38am On Jan 02
Once you start dating, you are to consider everything necessary. Your Pentecostal brothers(filled with the holy spirit) saw you but didn't ask for your hand in marriage but a catholic(lacking the holy spirit, according to you) saw you good for marriage. The holy spirit is in catholic church(were 2 or 3 are gathered in my name, i'm there in their midst) just that the priests don't shout/jump like your pastor.
See, to help him, you'll need to marry him in catholic church (then drag/lure him to ur church) so he can still receive communion except you both agree otherwise. Women/ladies do not know the power they have sometimes. A woman that loves and respects her man, can make him do anything.
For your information, the bible said "in the last days, i'll pour out my spirit upon all flesh.
If you love him, do all in love and with wisdom. Follow him to his church and also let him come to your church sometimes, once he begins to enjoy it, he'll continue even if u are not with him.

One key thing in marriage is good communication. How do Yoruba Muslims manage marrying Christians?
Let the holy spirit in you give you better understanding and direction.

Yes I agree-as I had said in one of my Quotes to her, trust in God.
It's hard to give up on Christ what you already know, she had already found the truth in Christ.
My wife and I are on the same boat, even Thur I love my wife dearly and she became a born again Christian, she was starting to have that personal freedom with Jesus, listening to him-but deep down her heart was with the Catholic Church, where she grew up.
As I said>its hard to give up what you already know...

The couple will have many differences, they both need to have that willingness to share in each's ones beliefs. Not just one sided.
My wife believes in the Catholic Church, she believes when she was baptised as a baby her own parents had made the right decision for her spiritual growth-until she herself dies. She believes she is already saved, before given her heart over to become a born again Christian and receiving the Holy Spirit.
So you see my King James bible reads different, from the catholic bible, and these are the problems this lady will front up against, at times it will be frustrating for both of them, like it is for us..

So with this ladies little problem, it could become a bigger problem, she needs the Lord more, like never before.
As I have said: Its hard to give up what you already know...

Please nlander I need you guys help.
I'm dating a catholic right now n am about to marry him, I'm scared of becoming a catholic member cos of my background ( the church am worshiping with), we believe in gift of the holy spirit and his presence in us.
I dislike their method of worship and their believe.
I don't know, how i will cope with him cos of his church...
...
... please mature advice.

Aunty, I am a Catholic. I know about and I believe the gifts and workings of the Holy Spirit. So, I don't know what you mean by all these.

You are scared/worried because you don't have adequate knowledge of the Bible. If you do, Anty, you won't have any fear about the Catholic doctrines. I was personally convinced by the Holy Spirit about everything being preached by the church; that's why I still remain a Catholic today.

I blame that guy you want to marry. Looks like he doesn't know that he has the duty of guiding you and teaching you about the Catholic faith. He needs to understand his duty as your new pastor and spiritual director.

As for me, I know I'm going to heaven. If your motive is about going to heaven and not just about sticking to your old method of serving God, then you won't have any fear about the Catholic Church.

Are you not funny by saying pastors are afraid of popularity of the Catholic Church?

It is actually the other way round. Pentecostalism is a movement sweeping across the world.

From Brazil to Asia, Jesus is winning souls like in the day of Pentecost...
