Over at the Internet Monk blog, Editor-in-Chief Jeff Dunn continues to share his reasons for leaving Evangelicalism and beginning the RCIA process. Towards the end, he writes:
There is a Target store here in Tulsa that has been open for less than five years. The foundation for the back third of the store is sinking, causing giant cracks in the floor of this “new” store. You would think that modern technologies would prevent something like this from happening. You would think that building on a firm foundation would be something any architect or engineer would ensure these days. New is not always better.
Only two evangelical churches I have been associated with over my forty years of being a Christian have even acknowledged that the early church fathers may have known what they were talking about. Or that they even existed. Most have been too concerned with wanting to be “relevant” to bother looking from wince we have come. Think I am exaggerating? I have a question for you, then. When is the last time you sang a worship chorus in an evangelical service that had rich theology? Or when was the last time you heard an evangelical preacher quote a church father?
I am sure I will have questions about Catholic theology as a venture on this road. Yet the Christian faith did not begin the day I was born. The questions I have have been asked and answered for two thousand years. I feel confident in those who have gone before me, and can rest knowing the foundation the Church rests on is sure. I could not say the same as an evangelical.
You can read the rest here.
Isn’t it amazing to see the Holy Spirit continuing to draw people home to the Catholic Church? Please keep Jeff in your prayers…those of us who have been through RCIA know that it can be a spiritually difficult time, but it is all worth it!
