Should Catholics Be Evangelized?


“Diversity” is a suitable word in describing much of evangelical Protestantism. This is also true among like-minded, Reformed, “gospel-centered” brethren. The more I have the privilege of serving in these circles, the more impressed I am by the breath of personalities and styles that make up our movement.

Here is one example. I was recently interviewed by Christian hip hop recording artist, Reformed theologian, Vocab Malone. Vocab is the host of “Backpack Radio” a program on the Salem Network from Phoenix, Arizona that explores issues of “street level apologetics.” I am hardly cool enough to be featured on such a program. Nevertheless, here is an extended interview revolving around the question of whether our Catholic friends should be evangelized.

  1. Should Catholics Be Evangelized?

    There’s a big difference between a liberal Catholic frequently known as a cultural Catholic or cafeteria Catholic and a well-catechised Catholic.

    Also, Catholics evangelize everyone, including Protestants, to become Catholics.
