Hold Fast to the Traditions You Were Taught, 2 Thessalonians 2:15

Mark Shea | December 16, 2009 No Comments

Marcus welcomes noted Catholic apologist Mark Shea. Mark was raised in a rather pagan or agnostic home and came to know Christ as an Evangelical later in life. After realizing that he, as an Evangelical, relied on the authority of tradition, just as much as Catholics did, he began researching more about Church history and Catholic teaching. Eventually, he joined the Catholic Church. Marcus and Mark focus on the reason why Divine Revelation necessitates an authoritative Tradition. Why are some books in the Bible and others aren’t?

Scripture verse: 2 Thessalonians 2:15

Mark says he is a double-jump convert. Having been reared, more or less, as an agnostic pagan, he became a non-denominational Evangelical in 1979, and entered the Catholic Church in 1987. Mark is the author of the books By What Authority?: An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition and Making Senses Out of Scripture.
