Delving Deep In History Brought Me Home

The Coming Home Network International recently published an abbreviated version of my conversion story in their monthly newsletter and online at their website. I decided to reproduce the article in it’s entirety here along with a PDF of the full newsletter at the bottom of the article. Enjoy! Delving Deep In History Brought Me Home We’ve all heard the maxim, “Your starting point always…

Straight From The Horse’s Mouth

This oft repeated idiom correctly points out that you are most likely to get the truth – or at least a more accurate version of the event in question – if your information comes from a direct source. In the arena of racetracks, jockeys, and large wagers, it doesn’t get much more direct than the horse himself! In the province of Protestant…

The Great Uncertainty – Problems with Individual Fallibility

Yesterday I listened to a two hour debate between Catholic author and apologist Devin Rose, and Nathaniel Taylor a graduate of Biola University, Westminster Theological Seminary, and a current philosophy student at Talbot School of Theology.

The Catholic Trilemma

— 1 — It is an odd thing to find yourself within a society as schizophrenic as ours. A society which worships at the altar of science while simultaneously denying the existence of absolute truth.

Inconceivable! The Ongoing Dissolution of the Christian Faith

Only 500 years ago it would have been absolutely inconceivable to think of any individual Christian simply going out and creating their own church. Christ had already founded a Church on, and through, His apostles. This Church was called by His name – Christian – and it was known as the Church Catholic, i.e. the Christian Church universal. A church created by someone else 1,500 years…

The Marks of the Church

The Church which Christ established has no name other than that of its founder. It is known simply by His name and that of His followers; it is known solely by the name of Christian. While it has no “denominational” name to identify it, it does possess identifying marks. Historically and Scripturally there have been four marks by which the…

Allow Me to Sum Up…

So, a lot has been happening. Allow me to sum up… — 1 — Last week I was contacted by a producer from Seize the Day on the Catholic Channel Sirius/XM 129. He wrote: “I saw your conversion story on Why I’m Catholic and I was wondering if you would like to come on our program tomorrow morning via telephone, and…
