Crossed The Tiber

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.

Interview With Former PCA Pastor Jason Stellman

The Called to Communion blog is hosting a podcast of an interview of Jason Stellman by Bryan Cross. In this over one hour long interview, Jason goes into great detail explaining his journey to Rome and how sola fide and sola scriptura were no longer tenable paradigms.  It is evident that "his journey" (he hates that term but will use it because "it's what Catholics say and he's a team player") took a long period of time with a very extensive study, prayer and counsel.  It was interesting that despite going to great lengths to meet with reformed theologians, no one could give him a good enough reason to abandon his quest for the truth he found in Catholicism. He relates that many wish to tell you how false Catholicism is but few are able to tell you how true Protestantism is. He spent several hours with James White, well-known Calvinist apologist, but came away unmoved in his determination to follow truth. It's a long interview but worth every minute. This will become a classic in the history of Catholic apologetics. God bless Jason and his family and please keep them in your prayers as he seeks to find a way to feed his family after forsaking all, picking up his cross and following Christ into the Church He started.

"Any Church that Jesus founded that is still around after 2000 years would just be as audacious as the Catholic Church is. It just would.... I mean Jesus was audacious."
