Mere Catholicism - Ian Ker - Google Книги
Whenever God gave me an opportunity, I evangelized. Bringing people to church and watching them go forward to an altar call was spiritually gratifying. While my spiritual life blossomed, so did my anti-Catholic attitude. The Catholicism I found mysterious and intriguing as a child I now viewed as the enemy of true Christianity.
See a Problem?
Though I never investigated the true doctrine and claims of the Catholic Church, the testimonies of former Catholics were compelling enough to convince me that Catholicism was not of God. I felt pity for Catholics.
They were spiritually lost, they needed Christ, and I wanted to help them find him. Eighteen years and three children later, I began my final journey home.

I was sitting in church reading my Bible, waiting for the service to start when, suddenly, I felt a strong desire for the Eucharist. It was so intense that it startled me, and it intensified throughout the service to the point that it became a distraction. For some unknown reason, every Catholic church I passed on my way home loomed larger than life.
Communion in my church was offered only one evening every other month, which made it almost impossible for me to attend. I called the church office on Monday to see if there was a chance communion could be offered at the morning services.
I went on with my business, only to have those strange promptings return. I remember asking the Lord, "What are you trying to tell me? I hated the idea of becoming Catholic. I was happy as an Evangelical, my children were happy, and my husband was happy that we were all happy. Why would I want to leave when everything seemed so right? Besides, if the Catholic Church was the true Church, then why did Catholics eagerly leave their Church to join my church?
Everything seemed so messy. I continued to pray.
When I picked it up I noticed an old bookmark. I opened it to the page and my eyes fell on the words I had read eighteen years ago when I was struggling with the claims of Christ. It was the page where Lewis said that you must make your choice. Either Jesus was, and is, the Son of God, or else he was a madman or worse.
