1.Whatever background/history you're willing to share (that's pertinent)
I've been homeschooled for the past...8 years, this will be my 3rd year with NCFCA. I play violin, love public speaking (I guess that's kind of a given on here
), Latin, school...I'm a total nerd. EDIT: I've grown up in a Catholic charismatic community my whole life that's been a huge part of...everything.
2.Your current religious philosophy
I'm a Roman Catholic, and I absolutely love my faith. It's so rich, sacramental, full of tradition...I love it. Apologetics is one of my passions. And I love theology. It just fascinates me, sort of. I want to get a theology degree.
3.Your current political philosophy
I want to see a culture of life in America...I'm a Conservative...uhm, the government is too big, too involved, is _SO_ inefficient, etc. It can't do things very well.
4.Your goal in life
Hmm. I've got kind of a lot.
Well, a lot of dreams. xD
What's my goal? Ultimately, to get to Heaven. [Haha, that's the usual response you get from Catholics, but I've never heard that from a Protestant.]
I want so badly to share truth with others.
What do you believe about purgatory? And under your beliefs, how does someone get to Jesus' right side, or Heaven?
Purgatory is where individuals go after death to be cleansed from either a) punishment from sin (just because it's forgiven doesn't mean you get no punishment! David still got punishment although God forgave him) and/or b) sin you have when you die, since no sin can enter heaven.
How do you get to Heaven? Generally, you're baptized, in the Catholic Church, and persevere in a state of grace (a mortal sin causes you to lose your state of grace...see a more thorough explanation + a list here: http://www.saintaquinas.com/mortal_sin.html
) until death.
Ask me Catholicism questions. Seriously.
