Why are evangelicals becoming Catholic? Collected stories from the web and the musings of a former evangelical (www.evangelicaltocatholic.com) evangelicaltocatholic@gmail.com

 

By October I was starting to realize early church history looked more Catholic than I thought. I was terrified when this book title popped up on Amazon. I knew I had a lot of work to do in Protestant apologetics before I could read it and not feel threatened. The day I decided to become Catholic I purchased the book and shook my head in amazement as former evangelical Devin Rose poignantly explained all of the contradictions of Protestantism that were slowly becoming evident. 

If Protestantism is true, then God gave the Church authority to make binding decisions about what is truth and what is heresy for over 700 years, and all Christians accepted these decisions as authoritative. But then, inexplicably, God disallowed the Church to hold any further authoritative councils. The Church that Christ built was thus left in a state where she could not make binding declarations on truth and heresy, and she remains so to this day.
