The Evangelical Thought on Conversion to Catholicism

Read this post on Carl's InsightScoop (...I go there a lot as you've probably noticed)

"What to do if an Evangelical is roaming toward Rome?"

What would you say to an Evangelical tempted to become Catholic or Orthodox?
Moore: There are some Evangelicals who genuinely become convinced that the truth claims of Rome or Antioch are persuasive. If that’s the case, one should indeed become Catholic or Orthodox rather than attempting to convince Shiloh Baptist Church to use icons or King James Bible Church of the benefits of venerating Mary.

Most Evangelicals I’ve encountered who are tempted to become Catholic or Orthodox, however, are going to make quite poor Catholic or Orthodox churchmen. I type that with fear, knowing many exceptions to this—including some colleagues on our editorial board...

A great read about six Evangelical Scholars/theologians and their thought on Catholic conversion.
