Greetings Baptists at the Door – A Friend’s Fun Story

by Steve Ray on June 3, 2018

Hey Steve, it’s Bronson from Ohio. A new Baptist church opened up in my area and this couple came to my door. They said are you interested in coming to our church? No thank you.

Then they asked if I went to church. I said I’m Catholic and they fired away I guess you could say. They asked if I was born again…I said “yes, I was born again the Bible way” then pointed out John 3:3-5 and 1 Peter 3:21 because they said baptism was only a symbol. They were speechless.

They said we are saved by faith alone…I fired back with the only place in the Bible where “faith” and “alone” are beside each other, is saying we are “not saved by faith alone (James 2:24). Again, crickets.

They were only at my door for about ten minutes, then I gave them a book on the Church Fathers to borrow. Nice people but I don’t think they were prepared to be answered back by a Catholic! Afterwards, I said to myself, “I knew watching all those Steve Ray videos would pay off!!!”

Excellent! Would I have the chance. The only things that show up at my door are JW’s and Mormon’s both of which are harder to figure!

Great job, Bronson. In addition to the verses you quoted, it seems that, by your actions and example, you also gave them an important lesson based on 1 Peter 3:15.
