Then you and your Christian friend would be free to marry. Note The departure of Catholicism from the biblical truth is so serious that many faithful Catholics are being led astray by a false gospel.It is entirely possible that your Catholic friend is not saved at all.Their unity is a reflection of the relationship between Christ and his bride, the church (Ephesians -33).But the fulfillment of that union can only be experienced if the husband and wife are spiritually united in a common faith and love for Christ. If you and your partner are divided at the very core of your soul, on the spiritual and most important aspect of your life, how can you experience genuine unity?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.However I exhort you to examine your religion in the light of God's holy Word, the Bible.Maybe the Lord would be gracious and lead you to a saving knowledge of Christ.
