My theory about Catholics who converted to Baptists and now returning to Catholicism is: 1. Some are involved in "Baptist" churches by name only where evangelism takes precedence over sound Biblical teaching and such churches are really lacking in dealing with their previous Catholic background. 2. Some are Transients who have never been regenerated by God and still in the wandering mode - 1 Jn. 2:19 Many Southern Baptists congregations are so focused on technique evangelism and getting numbers and so superficial in Bible teaching that there is really nothing there to keep any serious Bible student. I know, because I was a member of a Southern Baptist church for years and attended a Southern Baptist Seminary. However, those Catholics on this forum who are in transition back to Rome are not OBJECTIVE Bible students and more concerned in solving a philosophical problem and historically naive and deceived than serious about seeking truth. 1. Philosophically they are looking for a sense of unity. 2. Historically they are looking for historic identity Existing in "Baptist" churches where there is a theological vacuum or at least superficial theological teaching and pressed more by the philosophical and historical concerns, I believe explains their return to Catholicism. Another factor may well be a complete absence of new birth (1 Jn. 2:19). One thing is for sure, Neither James 2 or Romans supports the sacramentalistic soteriology of Rome IF those texts are OBJECTIVELY considered. So the motivations back to Rome must be found elsewhere.
