Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Why is the @#$% of Babylon Pro Life?

I just had to blog this thought. Forgive the break in the flow of saints here but I need to ask this question. Satan is the author of death and destruction and his goal is to destroy life here as well as lead people into eternal damnation. Many of the criticisms of our faith say that we believe a false gospel and the Pope is leading people to hell! They say we are in league with the Devil! Yet , suspending all reality for a moment and assuming this is true, why is the Catholic Church always on the forefront of the protection of the unborn as well as the elderly at the end of life and the unprotected in our society? Does that cause any of the anti-Catholic folks out there to wonder? It sure would make me question why Satan's false church has always been protecting the unborn? I have posed this to many folks and have never received an answer.
The Church is Pro-life because God is the author and creator of all life and therefore life from conception to natural death is sacred and needs to be protected. This is an ancient Judaic truth that continues to be upheld in the Catholic Church. When the Romans in the first three centuries were putting their newborns outside the walls of the city to die, guess who gathered these
children up an created orphanages for them? When prostitutes gave birth and could not care for their own, who adopted these children and took them under their care? When the prostitutes became ill and could not care for themselves, what Church was there for them? I can't bring myself to come to the conclusion that these were all the works of the devil. Can you?
The Supreme Court will be taking a second look at the legislation that made president Bush's Partial Birth Abortion Ban "illegal." It is hoped they will decide that the ban on partial birth abortion is not a privacy protected right supported by the Roe vs. Wade decision and will re-institute the legality of the earlier decision. Five of the current Supreme Court judges are members of the Catholic Church. Why did President Bush pick two Catholics for his last two judges? Guess which organization is spear-heading the efforts to lobby Congress, the media and opinion leaders with information to promote this life-saving legislation? Yup, our friends at the United States Catholic Council of Bishops! Check out the Second Look Project.
And you know what's interesting? Jane Roe, (Norma McGorvey) the original woman who the case focused on is now a staunch proponent of life and campaigns actively to end abortion in the US. Norma was baptized in 1995 and became an evangelical Christian after evangelistic efforts of folks from Operation Rescue. Three years later she was received into the Catholic Church. I hope this rant was worth the read, I just had to get it off my chest.
Please check out Norma's Pro-Life Ministry Crossing Over and pray for the upcoming Supreme Court's Second Look at Partial Birth Abortion Ban.

Satan and his minions are sneaky, TJ. Think about it, where would the prince pf lies more likely pop up: a church that reveres life from conception through death and even prays for the repose of the dead, or a church that preaches that you can have all the material comforts of life if you jut ask for it in Jesus' name. Or maybe in a church that abandons scriture and consecrates that which God has revealed as abominable?
