I have a dear friend who is a cradle Catholic. We have “discussed” similarities and differences for over 20 years. I think most who are RC are so by having been reared so. Some have very little knowledge of theology, but that is also true of Baptist. I was SB for my first 60 years. I am now PCA….which is reformed. I love apologetics, but many evangelicals don’t ……similar to the majority of RC believers. This may be some help in considering the question.
