Hi, guys —

I was a Catholic then I got baptized Mormon in 2004.

  • Can I return to the Church?
  • Would I need to be baptized again as a Catholic?
  • Are there unforgivable sins?

Tracy

  { Can some who was baptized a Catholic, then was baptized a Mormon, return to the Church? }

Eric replied:

Hi, Tracy —

All you have to do is to go to Confession and regularize any marriage situations you may have gotten involved in while you were away. Discuss, in detail, your marriage situation with the priest and he can advise you.

If you are repentant for a sin, then you haven't committed the unforgivable sin. Leaving the Catholic Church for Mormonism is definitely not the unforgivable sin.

Don't worry about it.

Eric

Mary Ann replied:

Tracy,

You may certainly come home to Christ's Church. You would not need to be baptized again.
You would probably need to make a profession of faith.

All sins can be forgiven except refusal to repent, because God, always ready to forgive, cannot forgive someone who will not come to Him for forgiveness.

So the only unforgivable sin is a hardness of heart, which refuses to repent and thus calls good, evil; and evil, good.

Mary Ann
