He said, “You know you’re going to hell, right!”

by Steve Ray on September 11, 2017

As we entered the Luther Museum in Luther’s childhood hometown of Mansfeld a group of American Lutherans were leaving. They were all excited at first to meet Americans and asked where we were from. I said we were from all across the country.

He then asked what Lutheran Synod we were from and I told him we were not Lutherans but Catholics. He acted shocked as did his people.

I told him that many of us had been Protestants and we are now Catholics. He looked me in the eye and said, “You know you’re going to hell, right?”

I said that he was incorrect and when I was Protestant I used to think the same way about Catholics. I said most of us were Protestant and we had converted to the Catholic Church. He was angry and walked away.

But a lady with their group snidely said, “Maybe after you visit all these places you’ll become Lutheran.” I said, “Give me 1/2 hour with your group outside and I’ll convince you all to become Catholics.”

Our group could not believe how rude they had been but I understood their mentality completely because I used to bo one of them.
