Ask Paul Any Questions You have

New York Times

Dear Paul, I have been very confused about what Christians actually believe in. I am currently a Gentile who would like to know about the Christian faith. Please help! Thank you- Unknown

Dear unknown,

It is ok to be confused. I will help you understand what Christians believe in. We believe that there is only one true God. Also Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. We believe in God our father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit. Also we believe in the blessed trinity and if we are truly sorry for our sins God will forgive us. I hope this has helped you know more about the Christian faith and you are not as confused as before. If you have any other questions please ask me.

More questions for Paul

Dear Paul, I am a curious Jew who would like to know if Gentiles want to become a Christian do they have to follow Jewish law.- Curious Jew

Dear Curious Jew,

We are discussing this matter right now. On my behalf, I think Gentiles should be allowed to become Christian and not have to follow Jewish law. This is because Jewish is a separate religion. I believe that Jews that get baptised shouldn't have to follow Jewish law either. I will get back to you on this matter after the discussion.

Dear Paul, I am currently a Gentile. I would like to which to the Christian faith, but I am unsure what it means to be a Christian. Please help me know what it means.- Unsure Gentile

Dear Unsure Gentile,

To be a Christian it means to believe that there is only one true God and Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. Being a Christians means living out the Kingdom Of God in everyday life and choosing right from wrong. This also entails going to Church every Sunday which is The Lord's Day and thanking and praying to God for all the wonderful things he did for us. You can learn what Christians believe in in the first question unknown asked me. I hope this answer helps you know what it means to be a Christian.

Dear Paul, I am a Christian who is married, but we have been having a lot disagreements and arguments lately. We would like to know if we are allowed to get divorced or should we ask for help from God.- not happy husband and wife

Dear not happy husband and wife,

No Christians are not allowed to get divorced. They are allowed to get an annulment. An annulment cancels a marriage between a man and a woman.Annulling a marriage is like pretending it never happened. God would like you to try a handle things on your own and still be together or ask for help from the Holy Spirit,but you can get an Annulment. I hope the best for you and your wife and everything gets handled well.

Dear Paul, I am a Gentile, but I would like to which to the Christian faith. I am very confused of why Christians go to church every Sunday and pray and to whom they pray to.- Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

Christians go to church every Sunday to feel closer to God and receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. We pray to God for forgiveness and thanking him for everything he has given us. Christians pray to God, Saints, Jesus, Mary, and the Holy Spirit. I hope you which to the Christian Faith and that I have helped you with your question.

Dear Paul, I am a Gentile who doesn't like to wear special clothing because I am very clumsy. I am deciding if I want to convert to the Christian faith, but I have one question. Do Christians have to wear any special attire or clothing?- Deciding Gentile

Dear Deciding Gentile,

No, Christians do not have to wear any special clothing. Although when Christians go to church they wear nice clothes for the presents of God. Also if you go to a Catholic or Private school you have to wear a uniform to school everyday.When you receive sacraments, you have to wear a dress if you are a girl and a suit if you are a boy.

Dear Paul, I am currently a Jew. I have made some sins but i don't know if God will forgive me. What should I do?- Sorry for my sins Jew

Dear sorry for my sins Jew,

Of course God would forgive you. You should go to penance and tell the priest you are sorry for your sins with all your heart. The priest will ask you to say some prayers and God will forgive you, but only if you are truly sorry for your sins. God would be more than happy if you were sorry for your sins. He also knows nobody is perfect and everyone make mistakes. I hope you are sorry for your sins and go to penance.
