Why I’m Not Catholic

By Stan Guthrie

As impressive as these conversion stories are, this evangelical is not crossing the Tiber. It’s nothing personal. I love Catholics’ commitment to community, their rich (though tragically checkered) history, their challenging social teaching, their heroic stands against tyranny, their awe-inspiring architecture, their bracing intellectual tradition, their mind-boggling charitable endeavors, and their sold-out missionaries. One cannot but give praise to God for the countless blessings mediated to the world through the Roman Catholic Church.

My reasons for not joining Catholicism are theological.
