Okay so why does hubby's family feel the need to make me a "catholic"? I was attending a christian church and I believe in the same morals, what does it matter? They think I'm going to hell because of this. I just want to be sure I am doing the right thing and following the right path.
OP: It's not just Catholism that often feels the need to convert others. I grew up Southern Baptist (though I am not anymore). baptist churches, or at least the people in them often preach against the philosophies of another denomination. It doesn't mean that the whole denomination thinks you will burn in hell for not being a part of it....some individuals might, but not necessarily whole denomination.
Catholics are very ritualistic where as protistants are a bit more "free" in their worship. Both have the ultimate goal in mind though (being salvation)
