What do you think, is right or wrong if a Catholic and a Christian were to marry?

Answer: I am deeply concerned for you and your friend.

As Lisa Cotter explains in her blog about “evangedating,” “sometimes God uses human love and attraction to bring people closer to Him.” Check out her article to read about scenarios where dating a non-Christian could be where God is (or isn’t) leading you.

Baptists and Catholics share some similarities, such as the Trinity and salvation through grace alone, but they differ when it comes to baptism, communion, confession, and so many other things. For example, it puts into question the church you get married in, the church you attend on Sundays, the way you bring up your children, the schools they may go to and so on. Or will you both become indifferent toward your own faiths just so it doesn’t cause conflict in your relationship?There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.Most are well intended and contain a nugget of truth. Dating is hard enough without sifting through all this erroneous information, so let's debunk some myths.Evangelical Christianity is based on the teaching of the Bible alone; Catholicism is built on the teaching of the magisterium.As a consequence, the respective teaching on the way of salvation is different. Evangelicals believe in Christ for salvation - and in nothing and nobody else, nor do they rely on any merits of our own; whereas Catholics, in addition to faith, base their salvation on the reception of baptism and other sacraments, good works and penance.The reality is that in order to make this work, someone has to sacrifice their faith for a future spouse. These are things you need to think about before “taking it further” with anyone of a different denomination.
