Evangelizing the Doubting Catholic

Extract from the book You Can Lead Roman Catholics To Christ.
Wilson Ewin

Millions of these people are now prepared for a presentation of the truth. Your conversation has revealed the area of doubts and the effect these have produced. If the person is receptive, you will now have the pleasant task of teaching God's Word. The ease with which this will be done depends upon your knowledge of Romanism and the Biblical steps to applying sound doctrine, reproof, correction and God's plan for man's righteousness (II Timothy 3:16).

Do not delay your visits if the person shows definite interest. The enemy is more than ready to remove the Word that has been sown (Matthew 13:19-21). It would be advisable to begin regular Bible studies. These should be maintained even after salvation and until the person is well established in Biblical faith. In your studies, concentrate upon Section 6 called "The New Testament" entitled "Opposition." Discipline yourself in the performance of your duty for you are about to see a precious soul born into the family of God. The Lord has opened wide the door; you will answer personally to Him some day if you fail to go in and possess the land.

Keep raising the issue of the Bible. Ask, "Have you purchased your Bible? Have you started reading? Where are you reading? Why not read the Gospel of St. John or the Acts of the Apostles? Have you noticed how the Bible talks about atonement (explain the term) through the shedding of blood? Did you read chapters 9 and 10 of the epistle to the Hebrews? What do you think about the apostolic believer's assurance of salvation?" Keep asking questions in order for the Catholic to think for himself and persevere in his reading.

The Catholic has been trained not to reason in the spiritual realm. He is supposed to listen and believe what the Church says. One time your writer was showing Acts 17:11-12 to an active Catholic. When the person read the following, "searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so," he stopped and said, "You are not a Catholic for Catholic never reads religious material with the purpose of determining what is truth. We already have the truth with the Catholic Church."

There will be things to divert the mind of the Catholic as you seek to have him make a decision for Christ. It is possible that some particular doubt or fear is occupying his attention. If it is hindering further discussion of the gospel, remove it before attempting to bring up another topic. When he understands Christ's Blood atonement for sin as opposed to Roman satisfaction, and furthermore, when his faith converts to Christ's atonement and His present ministry, you may be assured that he is no longer a Roman Catholic. Belief in some teachings of Rome may still remain, but at heart he is no longer a member of that system.

In all of your evangelism, remember the dead condition of the human heart (see John 6:44-45; Romans 3:10-18; I Corinthians 1:26-31; 2:5-14; Ephesians 2:1-10). Throughout this book, we are speaking of being "wise as serpents and harmless as doves" when evangelizing those enmeshed in the falsehood of Romanism. We are suggesting means to avoid errors and ease the difficulties encountered in witnessing to Catholics.

However, when carrying out the steps proposed in this book, we must keep one factor clearly in focus. The Catholic remains lost, blind and dead spiritually until God's Holy Spirit convicts and gives light (see John 16:7-14; II Corinthians 4:3-6). It is "Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts" (Zechariah 4:6).
