An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

Young Evangelicals Moving Away From the Culture Wars

Here is an interesting article in the American Spectator suggesting that today's young evangelicals are moving away from fighting the culture wars. Old evangelicalism fought against abortion and same sex marriage. But now,  young evangelical blogger Rachel Evans writes:

”We are tired of the culture wars,” she explained in a recent interview. “We are tired of politics.” Lamenting the church’s preoccupation with “shame and guilt,” she urged evangelicals to reconsider their opposition to same-sex unions."

In answering the question, Why am I Catholic?  One of Gilbert Chesterton's answers was : "It is the only thing that frees a man from the degrading slavery of being a child of his age."
