Gary Hoge: Atheist Then Baptist

July 26, 2004 No Comments

Gary was baptized in the Methodist Church when he was six month old but his parents soon stopped attending church. The little he knew of Christianity was from his father reading bedtime Bible stories to him. In high school and college he was an atheist but he wasn’t militant about is lack of belief. He began to reconsider God’s existence over a bowl of chili at Wendy’s and soon after began attending a Baptist church with his roommate. His journey to the Catholic faith began upon reading the book “Catholicism and Fundamentalism” by Karl Keating.
