I watched and recorded it as well. It was very good, and informative. I also have Alex Jones’ book, No Price Too High, and it was a great read as well.
I agree with the panel, we must learn more about the pentecostal movement so we can invite them to the fullness of faith. Each of them said tonight and in their journies showed that they were all seeking the truth, and weren’t going to stop searching until they found truth, even if it was in the Catholic Church. That’s a theme I hear repeated in most of our beloved converts.
And most importantly we have learned from all the guests on Marcus’ show, they all had a deep and personal faith in Jesus, and they are still thankful for their deep faith experience in their various non-catholic denoms, which they bring back home to the Church. I have never heard a guest badmouth their previous Christian walk. Hopefully they can inspire the rest of us to deepen our faith too.
The challenge for those of us who have been here all along, is to also seek and find that deep conversion in faith, not just membership. As Alex Jones said on the show, pentacostalism teaches individual relationship with Jesus, while the Catholic Church teaches that as well as our roles in the larger community, the Church. As he said we need theology, not just me-ology.
Peace in Christ
