My friend just started dating a catholic, a practicing catholic. He's a good old fashioned Baptist, and has no intention of ever becoming catholic, and it sounds like she's not planning on becoming Baptist any time soon either. I know little about catholicism, nothing much more than what we see in movies and hear just in general life. All I really know is there's way too much emphasis on Mary and the pope and it seems they're all about works. It seems to me that this is going down a road that just may be headed towards a dead end, but I'd love to know what you'd tell your friend in this situation. He has asked me what I think and what I know, so I'm trying to do some research and thought I would start here for info that I trust!
