Michael Lofton: A Former Baptist & Presbyterian

Background: / / /

July 27, 2015

Michael was born into a Christian family in the United State but at the age of two the family moved to Jerusalem. When he was four his parents divorced and his mother moved back to America and converted to Judaism. She moved back to Israel and he lived there until he was twelve, when he again returned to America to live with his father. At his father’s church he gave his life to Christ and was baptized but, sadly, soon fell far away into a sinful life. After hitting rock bottom, he returned to Christ and repented his sins. At first he attended his father’s Baptist congregation. When his daughter was born, after much study, he became convinced that she should be baptized and joined the Presbyterian Church. Continuing his studies, especially delving deep into the Church Fathers, the Holy Spirit eventually led him Home to the Catholic Church. Michael is currently working on a Master of Arts in Theological Studies at Christendom’s Notre Dame Graduate School and is also the editor of the website www.consolamini.org.

    I am often surprised by how banal Mr. Lofton’s biblical exegesis can be in his articles and blogs. The fact that he is originally from the Baptist faith goes a long way in explaining his unfortunate doltishness.
