Over time, this one-sided approach to scripture caused Catholics to reject their Catholic faith.

The author refers to "Catholic faith," as if to be distinct from "Protestant faith." Should we be exercising and encouraging "Christian faith"?

The confession of a repentant protestant.

What is there to be repentant of? Is it a sin to be a "Protestant"?

I call BS. This guy was a fake while a protestant or else he is now.

I'm an unrepentant Protestant member of the Catholic ping lists. I'm all screwed up.

Yes, but that could be independent of your religious faith.

I hope this isn't an indication you are looking for a fight?

So... I'll go out on a limb here and I'm not looking for a fight. I want to just ask a simple question to my Catholic friends here. Assume I am a lost sinner on my way to hell. What must I do to be saved?

Remember that a man who leaves the Church will often take his family with him

Maybe ... I don't see a lot of men with that much spiritual gumption, though. I see more Protestant men dutifully, even cheerfully, coming to Mass with their Catholic wives and children.

"In addition, they host special crusades"
Must be nice to have a few special crusades now and then. IIRC, for the duration of crusading the crusaders were granted remission of debts, stay of all court proceedings against them, and - most important of all - tax forgiveness!. Looks like an appealing package, doesn't it? Sort of unlimited Roth IRA.

The main problem with this author (Steve Woods) is that he looks at Protestantism through the lens of the Assemblies of God. His narrow view of the Protestant faith makes for a poor understanding and contrast to the Catholic faith...

(i.e. he went from misguided to mistaken).

Having only recently read the Bible and the CCC, I see the folly in sola scriptura. You end up playing one apostle off another (Paul v. James) and never asking the question, "What did Jesus (God!) have to say about that subject?"

Something funny to note. My cousin and her mom are both Evangelicals. My wife sends them notes from her Catholic Bible study, and they always comment how great and enlightened the notes are!
