I haven’t OFFICIALLY converted yet (it transgresses my mother’s will, and so I have to wait until I’m of age) but I was raised Baptist.
I was saved through the waters of purgation on May 3rd of 2006. I was encouraged to read the Scriptures, etc., and I began to do so, despite still being very deep in sin at the time.
I began to notice discrepancies between what I was taught and what the Bible actually said. These observations went something like:
(1) No support for once-saved, always-saved and my rejection of it.
(2) No support for total biblical literalism and my rejection of it.
(3) No support for symbolic nature of baptism and my rejection of it.
(4) Support for continuation of the charisms and my acceptance of it.
(5) My realization that intercession of the saints is not anti-biblical nor heretical, and my gradual acceptance of it.
(6) Church’s union with Christ abundantly clear and my acceptance of it.
(7) Peter’s preeminence among the apostles and my acceptance of it.
(8) My utter frustration at trying to find complete truth within Protestantism and subsequent hopelessness.
(9) Literal Eucharist affirmed 1000x over and my glad acceptance of it AND the Faith.
Despite these realizations, and the numerous others which sprang from them, my Baptist friends, as well as my mother, seem to think it very odd and no one is willing to allow me to believe, to know rather, that the Church alone offers the Fullness of Christ. I, however, for my part remain convinced.
