[quote=kwitz]I’m curious about what event, scripture, puzzlement etc. that made you consider the Catholic Church? Was it one specific event or a series of niggling ideas that got you to do the research and prayer that conversion requires? Also, from whatever got you thinking about Truth was it a slow or quick process into the Church?
Thanks for any input here. As a cradle Catholic, the whole process of conversion fascinates me. I find conversion stories so inspirational and not having one of my own, I’m interested in others.
I had actually gone to a RCC school in elementary school, and my best friend was Catholic… in fact is now a priest. I never really looked at Catholicism seriously as an alternative. I had for the most part quit believing in the doctrine of the Trinity since I could not find it in the Bible, however, still held to most of the other tenets of the SDA Faith. I was reading a book, on the second coming/rapture from the viewpoint of the RCC, and the writer’s explanation of the Trinity is what really caught my attention.
It was the first time that I had seen the doctrine explained in a way that it’s progression towards definition made sense. That was the first time I took the RCC seriously. My wife and I then began studying and after about 2 years wrote a 100 page letter to our family and friends the explained in VERY brief terms the doctrinal reasons for our conversion.
We had contacted the priest I had known as a child through my friend, amazingly, he still remembered me, 20 years later… and well… thats how it all started.
