The forty-second episode of The Journey Home is titled “Gray Plunkett: An Episcopal Missionary Who Became A Catholic” and aired September 18, 1998. It can be viewed online here.
Not two minutes in to this episode, Marcus Grodi says that the Internet is a great technology that “God has given us”. This is ridiculous. God didn’t give us the Internet or email; man invented that. In fact, many of those involved in that invention would likely be insulted by this claim.
This is yet another guest who was never not Christian. He was a Bible translator missionary.
Wouldn’t it be a better communication tactic for god to have created a Bible that didn’t need translating? So many more people could more easily get the message. And, if it didn’t need interpreting either, the Christian Church could be truly one instead of split into 40,000 or so different denominations. That would be pretty strong evidence that Christianity is true, don’t you think?
So far, our breakdown of the guests’ religious state before conversion to Catholicism looks like this.
- Repeat Guest: 2
- Serious Christian: 29
- Always Catholic: 8
- Lax Christian: 1
- Non-Christian, but religious: 2
- Non-believer, but not very skeptical: 0
- Skeptic: 0
