So whom am I? I have been an “evangelical Christian” for my whole life. Over the last few years I have felt very much out of place in evangelicalism all together, it has been as if something just wasn’t right. As of the past couple months, I have my evangelical world view became completely disillusioned with itself and I can seriously no longer call myself an evangelical, because we have no foundations whatsoever.
This has been aided by my classes certainly. I do go to an evangelical school in North America, where I am a theology major and will be graduating in December. My theological studies have centered mostly on historical theology where I have been deeply influenced by two professors who have taught me about the Church Fathers, and how they can still be evangelicals, I have no idea. So anyway, they have gotten me immersed in the Fathers and I seemed to finally find that which was missing in my Christian life, and that is the beauty and necessity of Tradition. How anyone can function without it, I do not have the slightest idea and I fear it will be the ultimate downfall of evangelicalism as it becomes more and more disillusioned with itself.
I hope to at least explore Catholicism now and see where my journey takes me.
