I Went To A Catholic Church by Ilamina(f): 7:31pm On Oct 07, 2018
I went to a Catholic Church today for the first time

I haven't been to church since I broke my leg( my assault incident)
So it was refreshing for me

I just love the spirituality of the Catholic Church

Those images on the wall were beautiful, made me have this deep connection with God

It was a nice experience, kept on looking at the virgin Mary/Jesus statues and images, dey were so beautiful, divine, sacred and artistic. . I also enjoyed the robe guys
I Kept on focusing what they were saying because we all hear the Catholic worship mary and all

By one thing I noticed when they were reciting their prayers, they said Jesus descended from hell when he died before he ascended to heaven, never knew that. .I will do my research after

But I realized they are not friendly like other churches, no one welcomed me.

Naa, I should stick to my sophisticated Protestant church, where everyone dresses nice, expensive, rich and act posh

But won't mind going to Catholic Church once in a while, just to have a different experience once in a while

the catholic in me finds your post a bit funny. Yes Christ descended into hell to free those held captive and the righteous Dead rose with him into eternal life. I hope you found our vestments and uniform movements during the mass a delight to watch? How about the singing, blissful I guess

Christianity is not about a church looking beautiful and everyone religious. It is a practise of righteousness and manifesting God's power. Catholics have broken God's major commandment that says you shall not mold images of things in heaven or earth and bow before them (or pray before them).
They are praying to Mary which is blasphemy against Jesus whom they profess. They are stobburn to admit this. But a newcomer could hear and see today that they were praying all to Mary instead of Jesus, whom is God himself/Only Begotten Son and Mary just a human. This is how many new Christians are deceived and put in bondage of the devil

Anyways, Please come to The Lord's Chosen.
Why, because here you will hear the truth 100% and learn what are lies and deceptions which are swaying away today's Christians. Receive power of Sonship and be on your way to the Glorious Heaven that God has prepared for the Overcomers.

You'll rather deny Jesus Christ than worship with a faction of Christianity. For a professing Christian those are very very strong words. For an unbeliever or religious wanderer, it's wanton

Good for u, the images are supposed to do exactly that. catholics believe christians both in heaven and on earth form one family of God so we have family album in church where u can luk at family members.

I liked the bowing down to the cross, when they carry the Cross at the end of the church, all the demonstrations they do has so much swag

I told you Catholism is an Idolatrous corrupting branch planted by the devil among Christians. I don't know the doctrines of 7th day Adventist.

To waste your time arguing about which church is good or not is another vanity. If i have that kind of time, i will use it use it on sth less spiritual. how much more do we even know this GOD and his mind.

Nope catholicisn is actual the trunk of christianity from which all other branches came from. if it was planted by the devil, then d entire christendom is from the devil.

Did u find them worshipping mary at mass?

I saw it as honouring, but I can't be too sure because I have been to the church twice

In other churches, we don't put that emphasis on mary
That's why other churches find catholics weird

Frankly speaking, we don't know about the swag, we just worship God in the way handed down to us, from the apostles and their successors, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
