Evangelizing the Disillusioned Catholic
Extract from the book You Can Lead Roman Catholics To Christ.
Not only does Romanism deprive its people of God's salvation, but it often destroys the soul of those who once had
the courage to seek the truth. Italy has the strongest Communist
party in the Free World because Marxism feeds on decadent
Romanism. Millions first lost confidence in their Church, then
developed an anti-clerical attitude, and now look upon all
religion as a hoax. You may meet some of these bitter folk.
There are other millions of Catholics who have not gone to
this extreme. Some do not go to church any more and have
developed strange philosophies to deaden their moral
consciences. A substantial proportion of recruits in the false
cults are former Catholics. Many are to be found in spiritist
seances. Most of these fallen-away ones deny many
fundamental truths of our New Testament faith. They are
spiritual wanderers because they are convinced the Roman
Church is not the true Church founded by Christ. Talk with
them and gain their confidence. Congratulate each one for
having recognized the true nature of the Roman Church. Often
you will find that religious teaching received as a child has not disappeared completely.
Some spiritual convictions remain.
They need assurance and you have much to offer these
occasionally hungry hearts.
Again, your task must be to identify the individual as to his
spiritual position and to work according to his needs. Often you
will find that no interest remains in spiritual matters.
Many, however, do have a genuine interest. They are
seeking, and you must supply Biblical answers. Remember the
ministry of your local church. It is the place for you to bring the
disillusioned Roman Catholic.
