Through the eyes of most non-Catholic Christians, few Catholics look or sound like Christians. This is understandable when it comes to bad Catholics who do not live according to the teachings of their Faith, but it can even be true of good faithful Catholics whose devotions and practices look strange to Evangelical Christians.

Introduction

At best, Evangelical Christians might feel sympathy, and at worse, revulsion, when they see what they interpret as a superstitious, idol worshipping woman wearing a Mantia on her head, kneeling before a statue of Mary, fingering a string of beads, and mumbling Latin phrases.

What about all those strange doctrines that Catholics supposedly believe? What about their devotions to Mary—do they indeed worship her as if she is the fourth person of the Trinity? What about their loyalty to the pope? And how do Catholics think they are saved? Through their works? Through their faithful participation in the sacraments? And what about all those drinking, smoking, gambling, divorcing, Mafioso Catholics? How can this be what Christ wanted?

So, are any Catholics Christians? This is what we hope to examine in the following articles and media presentations.
