Patty has appeared on The Journey Home in the past. This should be a memorable program.
I’ll have to try to catch this on the radio.
In other news.... Mr. White’s head will explode again.
More heartburn for White.
And why exactly is this going to be memorable? I mean, really, so a well known protestant theologian and apologists sister joins the Roman Catholic church....and this somehow makes her significant?
Is she somehow automatically granted the status of apologist and theologian because her brother is? Is there some sort of familial importance beyond trying to rub his face in it that I don’t understand?
If Ron Paul’s sister suddenly decided to become a communist would you all consider it somehow a sign that Ron Paul’s beliefs about liberty were in error? What kind of fallacious reasoning is this?
Read "I've now been indoctrinated ..."
Another case of "Tiberculosis".
** What I discovered is that everything I had been taught about the Catholic Church as a Baptist had been erroneous. Every objection that I had been engrained with since childhood was a falsehood about the Catholic Church and was easily refuted by an honest look at Church history.**
Oh, if we could only have her speak with some of the anti-Catholic posters on FR!!!!!!!!
What she apparently fails to realize is that the denomination can be apostate (which it is) and still be the home of many sincere believers, such as Patrick of Ireland.
Thankfully our justification (standing before God) is not based on being a member of the correct denomination, but it is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone as we have it in the Scripture alone.
If those writings are not of the men who wrote the Bible, then just exactly what has she been led to believe about the patriarchs??? Which of them heard anything from the very mouth of Christ???
I began to familiarize myself with the culture and time of the Apostles and realized that Christianity in its earliest days was not Bible centered (indeed most of the NT was not written yet and later was not available for the masses) but Tradition centered.
Yep --- she's been fully indoctrinated in the faith --- she has the jargon down --- hurry up and baptize her before she wakes up.
I learned that when the early Christians went to Church their services were not sermon centered but centered around the Eucharist, the Lords Supper, which was not seen as a symbol but as the actual Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
But that must have been only in those churches that only had Tradition, because those churches that had Bibles would have known that the "Soul" and "Divinity" part is nowhere in the Bible. Maybe a sermon or two on that in her new faith wouldn' hurt.
Got it on live streaming audio, but I’ll probably have to get one of the Highly Technical Teens to download the mp3 for me, if it’s extremely interesting.
