Re: Multi-Faith Christian Families?Originally posted by Elena23* I apologize for any scandal I cause to those who doing a forum search read my old posts written before and during my journey to the Catholic Faith. If you read anything heretical, impious, or just plain wrong, please forgive my ignorance. I submit everything to the Magisterium of the Holy Catholic Church. Praised be Jesus Christ forever and ever! Amen. Also, sorry for the times I was a jerk. Lot's of those!

We baptize infants to show that even before we can respond, God has a call on our lives. We baptize adults to show that having been called, we must respond in obediance."
So basically, though we teach infant baptism and accept Adult baptism we ultimately leave it up to the parents to decide."Yes, I'm quite concerned about health care issues surrounding leaked radiation from Japan. Now, please pass me my super sized, bacon double cheeseburger, combo meal..."

My most recent faith struggle is not one of intellect. I don't really do that anymore. Sooner or later you just figure out there are some guys who don't believe in God and they can prove He doesn't exist, and some other guys who can prove He does exist, and the argument stopped being about God a long time ago and now it's about who is smarter, and honestly, I don't care. ~ Don Miller Blue Like Jazz

Well then, I do not see that there is much more you can do than to continue to pray for him. Get your church to pray for him too. I also will pray for him.
It is something that he is no longer affiliated with the watchtower though he still agrees with them on some things.
I'll pray, as Furay said, that God will soften his heart but also that He will open it, that He will give Him a hunger for Him and a desire to know Him as He is and not necessarily as he has been taught, that He will give your husband a boldness to seek truth at any cost and to resist satisfaction with answers that were canned and fed him long ago.
I will pray for you too, if you don't mind.“To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.“ - Chuang Tzu

I hope that he will eventually come around. I don't want to paint him as the 'bad guy' -- I knew perfectly well going into the marriage that this would be difficult. We did purchase two new Bibles together that were not the NWT, and have been reading them, so I consider that a step in the right direction!
