You Are That Man

January 18, 2011

“I was born and raised in a Catholic home.” This sentence, repeated in all too many ‘conversion’ stories, must be included in mine. It seems so much more tragic to preface a testimony with this sentence, than to relay a happy conversion story that starts, “I was born and raised a staunch Calvinist, but then…” Why? Because when the story concerns a cradle Catholic, it signals that something was missing from what should have been the most wonderful, grace filled Christian experience available on earth. ... more
