Vaughn Kohler: Former Independent Baptist
February 4, 2013
Marcus welcomes Vaughn Kohler, a former evangelical protestant, to the program. Vaughn’s earliest memories are living in South Bend, IN in a family secure in its protestant faith amidst a culture of Catholicism. He shares the story of his journey through Wheaton College and several protestant seminaries to becoming a youth pastor in the Southern Baptist tradition. But through it all, Vaughn experiences “Catholic moments” which continue him to lead him into further study/reflection about his beliefs. Ultimately it is the issue of authority and biblical interpretation that culminates in his conversion.
