    Before taking the plunge, I suggest you become aware of a few things first.

    Once you're committed-- completed First Holy Communion and Confirmation
    --God will be holding you accountable to comply with everything Rome
    teaches and stands for: the Commandments, the Canon Law, the dogma,
    the rituals, the Traditions, the Councils, the Bulls, the Encyclicals, the rites,
    the holy days of obligation, and the entire Catechism; plus everything that
    Jesus and the apostles taught in the New Testament, i.e. the gospels and
    the epistles.

    That's a lot to remember, let alone put into practice.

    And then there's the matter of mortal sin. When Catholics leave this life with
    just one non-absolved mortal sin on the books, just one, they go straight to
    Hell. It's a direct flight; no stopover in a Purgatory. Even if a Catholic
    managed to be a top performer in faith and practice for fifty years, none of
    that will be taken into consideration. They will leave this life as if they'd been
    a pagan the whole time. Mortal sins are that lethal.

    In addition; God isn't a political appointee like the members of the US
    Supreme Court, viz; He isn't biased towards the left or to the right, i.e. the
    justice of God is fair across the board, so that affiliation with the Roman
    church grants no one special consideration. (Rom 2:6-11, and 1Pet 1:17)

    Precious friend, Only IF "God Wanted you to do that," According To Scripture,
    but, First, you may want to know HIM, in a "Relationship" With HIM,
    Which "HE Establishes"
    {NOT Any "church or religion"}, With you! Be Blessed!:

    Precious friend. God's Will, Today, Under HIS PURE GRACE? Very Simply:

    (1) believe, 100% trust, place Total faith, In The LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIS
    Death {Precious BLOOD}, Burial, And HIS Resurrection, According To The
    Scriptures! (
    1 Corinthians 15:3-4; cp Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3-5 KJB!)

    Results: all sins Forgiven, Eternal Life, And, Peace With God!

    (2) Fulfil ALL Of His Law, In "ONE Word: LOVE thy neighbor as thyself!"
    (
    Galatians 5:14; Romans 13:8-10 KJB!)

    (3) "Study" HIS Word Of Truth, Rightly Divided, for "Approval!"
    (
    2 Timothy 2:15 KJB!)

    Eternal Results: reward, ruling, and reigning With CHRIST!
    -----------------------------------------------------
    PS. For the Following Reason,
    I ran from the Roman religion, And, Will
    NEVER "go back to it!: They "claim" that THEIR "church/tradition/magesterium"
    is EQUAL to/Higher Than God's PURE And HOLY Word! But, God Says:

    "I will worship toward Thy holy temple, and praise Thy HOLY
    Name for Thy LovingKindness and for Thy TRUTH: for Thou
    Hast MAGNIFIED Thy WORD Above All Thy Name!
    "
    ( Psalms 138:2 KJB! )

    Do you remember What Happened to the angel of light, Lucifer, When he
    {in PRIDE} said: "I will be higher than God"?

    Thus, I believe God Would Want us "to STAY AWAY from PRIDE," And
    humbly serve HIM, In love of HIM, And HIS Word Of Truth! Amen?

    Precious friend: Please Be Very Richly Blessed!

    You have to talk to a priest. I believe there is a process of becoming Catholic.

    .
    This comment is off-topic, but I seriously think it's something that needs
    saying from time to time.

    Internet forums have given many of Christ's obscure followers a convenient
    venue for sharing their time-won knowledge and experience with a
    worldwide audience. For the world's sake, I highly recommend making an
    effort to compose legible posts; neatly arranged, sensible, coherent, and
    tidy.

    Excessive bolding, underscoring, and italics, lack of adequate paragraphing,
    twitter spelling, unnecessary emogies, horrible grammar, confusing mixtures
    of fonts and colors, and/or shouting with caps and oversize letters, makes
    for tiresome clutter and annoying graffiti that leave a bad impression.

    Some people's posts resemble the obnoxious placards of worked-up
    protesters and political activists; yelling, shrieking, and sometimes even
    spraying spittle. They are beyond reason and objectivity in their desperation
    to be taken seriously. Apparently they assume that if only they shout loud
    enough, make themselves annoying enough, and hold out long enough;
    maybe they'll get their point across and somebody will finally listen.

    I rather suspect that some people regard forums as a canvas for painting
    their comments instead of composing them. Well; that might be okay for
    outsiders, they can be as messy as they want because their comments don't
    matter anyway. But for those of us who honestly believe ourselves to be
    representing God's son; it's unacceptable because it reflects on Christ and
    makes him look like his followers are desperate kooks.

    "Conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ." (Phil 1:27)

    Brother… let me ask you something.
    If your phone woke you up one morning, and the caller wanted to talk to you about Pope Francis, what would your response be?

    And on a different phone line, if the caller wanted to talk to you about the biblical Lord Jesus and praise His name and feast on the KJV Bible, would you just not think, oh praise the Lord, I will praise the Lord with all wondrous joy.

    Well , lets just say i had rather sit in a bucket of gas around a huge campfire with lots of sparks and watch concrete cure
    than to hear from or be encourage to hear from POPE FRANCIS . I hope that is simple enough .
    Lets not try and visualize that one . I guess a simple no to the pope would have sufficed . But sometimes
    words can put a deeper feeling into the answer .
    As for folks who want to read and learn that bible , That we can do all day and praise the KING while we do it .

    Quite an old post I say. If you did ant to become a Catholic you would talk to a Priest and then you would go to classes to learn about Christianity away from the brain washing some protestant evangelicalism can do. Then you will b confirmed at Easter and if you were not baptized you will be baptized at that time.

    Learning and reading the bible. Praising our biblical Lord Jesus Christ all day long sounds glorious. Oh let the Lord be praised.
