Yes. He is a real good person.

Now I must ask all the Roman Catholics here to forgive me for being so frank as my grandchildren to be might also be of that persuasion.

This will be a new experience for me. Being nice to Catholics. But I think I can do it.

He is not a bar fly. He is a hard worker. I like him.

That's great. Hard workers cannot "run off" too far, since they have to be back at work the next day.

You are very wise. While I have your ear-

Don't you think that theology is shaped by life? I mean, here I am a staunch Calvinist planning to make allowances for Catholicism.

Thanks

If their relationship is healthy I think you should be relieved; there are some people out there who aren't decent and your daughter has been wise to choose someone who is pleasant.

Well thankfully it's not you marrying the Catholic, and I presume your daughter is in love which means she is blind, so for the next year at least, Catholicism is unlikely to bother her.

My policy (which is as yet untested) would be to do all that is possible to not interfere with them, and to keep on their best side, so that you have access to the MANY grandkids to come.

ThanksI was a cradle Catholic who married a cradle Catholic. After many years of marriage, we both declined the RCC and are Presbyterian (WCF). Romans 8:28

We also have a married child who attends an ELCA.

We don't make allowances for the ELCA. We simply want to respect her choices and we know that the Lord has a plan for her life.

I keep a picture of the kids and grandkids in a bible to remind me to pray for them many times a day. We pray and we keep our peace.

Yes. It gives one a totally different perspective. Grandpa can't be a butthead.

I'd say there a different people being catholic, just like there are different people among other Christians. If he believes and Jesus and has accepted Him as his savior, that would be a good start.

What if you had a son, and he married a Jew? And then they had Christ-denying children?

I'm afraid for that you don't need to marry a Jew. Unfortunately it happens in many Christian families, too.
