Good question, Jon. Although you won’t hear me admit this very often, I believe that some Catholics are so far away from God, that it would serve them a good purpose to be evangelized by Protestants. Even Muslims.
I know a fellow who, when he was Catholic, was so unlawful and so sinful, that he hardly had any conscience. But he converted to Islam and became unrecognizable. In fact, he changed his ways so fast that he was completely unrecognizable after about a week.
This was a couple of years after his conversion, but just as an example of how thoroughly he had changed. I used to own a large ciclid that I kept in my tank at home. To entertain my children, I would throw in some mosquito fish to show them how the ciclid would eat them. It was amazing how lightning fast this fish could go from one side of the tank to the other. The poor mosquito fish would hardly touch the water and they were swallowed.
Since this fellow was a former dog fighter. By that I mean that he raised pit bulls and handled them in the pits while they pretty much ripped themselves to shreds. Well, since that was part of his history, I thought he might be entertained. But he wasn’t. He was horrified.
Amazing what a little grace will do. Unfortunately, he’s still a Muslim.
Oh, and I’m sure there are Protestants and Muslims and all sorts of folks that could use a bit of conversion. Whaddaya think?
