I Was An Evangelical Minister Minding My Own Business – Conversion Story of Deacon Joe Allison

At one of my sister-in-law’s homes I found a book sitting on the coffee table called Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic about a fundamentalist/evangelical Christian who had become Catholic.

Marcus and Ken take a question on the effects of Baptism and continue their study of Romans. As a result of death and resurrection of Christ we are no longer slaves to sin, but there is still the danger of going back, choosing the slavery we had before. We need to understand the trajectory of our choices and continually inform our consciences by the standard of proper teaching.
