    Hi, everyone.

    I am a single young man who formerly attended Pentecostal and Charismatic churches. I now want to change over to traditional orthodox Christianity and am interested in learning more about the beliefs and practices of the Catholic church.

    During the past year, I have started to attend Mass on Sunday mornings and will soon be taking Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) classes. I have started taking correspondence courses on Catholicism from the Catholic Home Study Service.

    Now I need to find a good Catholic Bible from which to read as my dozen current Bibles are all of Protestant translations lacking the Deuterocanon (with the exception of the New Revised Standard Version, a mainline Protestant translation used by the Anglican/Episcopalian church among other denominations).

    Thanks for having me in this forum.

    I became interested in Catholicism when I started studying the beliefs and practices of different Christian denominations after I decided that I didn’t want to remain in the Pentecostal movement. I was introduced to Pentecostalism by the person who led me to Christianity through the prayer of salvation, more commonly known as the sinner’s prayer.

    I started reading articles on Catholic web sites about different aspects of Catholicism. In particular, I paid extra attention to articles that addressed the questions that Protestants and especially Evangelicals often have about the Catholic faith.

    Now I’m gaining a great appreciation for the liturgy of the Mass and a greater understanding of why Catholics practice Christianity the way they do.



    God bless you Wayne…. welcome to the forum.



    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    I know that I will enjoy my time in these forums learning more about the Catholic faith.
