Christopher Zehnder – Former Missouri Synod Lutheran

October 10, 2017 No Comments

Christopher was raised in the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church, and through it, developed some sense of the value of liturgy and doctrine.  But when he was introduced to the “Jesus Movement” as a teenager, he began to question whether the Holy Spirit was really working through the Lutherans, since they didn’t seem as vibrant as these new Christians he was meeting in Bible studies and praise and worship services.  Along the way, he decided to start taking Latin classes, and through a series of philosophical discussions with his professor, he came to the understanding that the theologies he’d been exposed to as a young man were valuable, but incomplete, and that the fulness of truth he was seeking could be found in the Catholic Church.
