Can I have a non-cliche answer?

Q: Can I have a non-cliche answer?

Some Christians are very eager to describe their faith, but the way they do it often leads me to believe that they have no idea what they are actually talking about. Isn’t there more to it than just being a good person who doesn’t sin because anyone can follow rules and be good? I would like to hear a Christian describe how to be a Christian without using the words “Just accept Jesus into your heart.” I would like to hear a Christian describe how Christians should know how to act without saying, “faith leads us down the path of righteousness.” Or “The Bible tells us how.” I would like to hear a Christian say what the purpose of being a Christian is with something more specific than, “To bring glory to God.” Or “To usher in the kingdom of Heaven.” I am not trying to prove some point here. I want to know what you mean specifically by “righteousness.” What does it mean right now, today, in a real way to “bring Glory to God”? Etc. Can you do it? Without sounding cliche.

A: Catholics rightly understand that the only way most people will ever be able to discern and/or have any hope of accomplishing the high purpose for which God created them, is through a lifetime of full, faithful, charitable participation in all of the work, worship, sacraments and devotions of the only authentic and universal Christian Church that Jesus ever founded, for the purpose of our salvation.

This is no cliche … this is truth … based on the teachings of Christ and the apostles … and on the sum total of 2000 years of practical, worldwide experience.
