Puritan Board Freshman
While I agree that contemporary “Reformed” and “Evangelical” converts to RCC do not have a solid understanding of the biblical faith, I’m confounded by the conversion of J.H.Newman to Rome. On one hand, he was very well raised in a Anglican background with heavy Reformed influences and he himself displayed piety and faith in Christ. Yet, on the other hand, he sought to find a “media” between Rome’s and Protestant justification and use history to support Rome’s claim as the legitimate church. He once famously said, “To be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant.” In mid-October, he will be canonized as saint by the Vatican. What are your thoughts on this man?
