The 12 Step Program for Lapsed Catholics

Many Catholics leave The Only Church Jesus Founded.  That’s the biggest mistake there is!  Catholic Fundamentalism’s 12 Step Program helps some:

1. Admit the truth:  “I did not want to be bothered by rules that keep me from doing what I want.”

2. I was so addicted to my vanity that I decided to disobey Catholic Teaching.

3. I justified my disobedience of Catholic Teaching that provided life to my ancestors who gave life to me.  I had to find a denomination that would let me do as I pleased, or reject all Christianity.

4. I realize what my choice has done.  I care more about me than about my spouse and family.  My children are confused.  I have kept many of my own children from being born.  I have done what I want.  What has it gotten me?

5. I think about the shallowness of my distractions.   Have my choices brought me joy?  Am I merely justifying sin?  Am I hurting myself and others?  Am I better off?

6.  I cannot escape the nagging thought:  “I have a soul.  It will go to Judgment.  I have willfully disobeyed Jesus and rejected The Only Church He Founded.

7.  The price of willful disobedience is clear to me: John: 3:36 “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but must endure God’s wrath.”

8.  My decisions have made me miserable.  They have hurt those I love.  My choices will condemn my soul.  I am only “a good Confession” away from Absolution.

9.  I will stop thinking “I know more than Jesus.”  I will regain access to the only “keys of The Kingdom of Heaven” that He left on earth when He Decreed:

“. . I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven. . .”

10.  I will do what is necessary to receive Forgiveness for my sins from those ordained in living link with Jesus Ordination of His First Catholic Bishops:  “Those whose sins you forgive on earth are forgiven in Heaven.”

11.  I will receive The Actual Body and Blood of Christ in Catholic Communion, obeying what Jesus repeated 14 times:  “If  you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.”

12.  I will “have life in” me!  Forever!

That’s The 12 Step Program for Lapsed Catholics.
