I just watched the other part of that video of the Pentecostal minister who converted to Catholicism. I feel sad for you and your husband. People absolutely will not leave their careers and admit they were wrong.

I believe that philosophy should not claim truth. It should ever be searching for truth, but never claiming to own it.
June VanDerMark:

I believe philosophy to be an exercise in reasoning viewpoints, to an end which is truth. So if viewpoints are truth, which some on here view as one's own perspective, then they are philosophers.

I strive not to allow the five senses to control my life...

Faith does not depend upon what a person....

feels...sees.. hears...taste or smells.

Faith is having confident expectations in What God has Spoken forth and

being fully persuaded in your own heart that what God has spoken forth .

He will perform/do.

While I appreciate your interest in the destiny of my eternal soul..

you need not waste your time...

2Ti_1:12 ........ I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Which story is right?

First you said that a Pentecostal minister converted to CC.

Then you said that people ABSOLUTELY would not leave their careers and admit that they were wrong.

All devout believers are prone to justify the words and actions of their own theologians.
Augustine promoted Catholic war as just and ordained by "god," and many Catholics to this day revere his dogmas as the most holy of all Catholic theologians.
June VanDerMark:

Since you are devoted to your beliefs, this must apply to you as well.

It is hard to say what one will do in order to justify actions in the future. On the other hand, if one is faced with an enemy that seeks to destroy, one is obliged for the sake of justice to act with fortitude. That act of justice we face in the present, and is a part of the will.

When as A small child, God spoke to my heart and called me to the ministry...of His word...

He did not call me to a Roman Catholic Church, neither did he call me

to spend my time on the golf course...or collect a fortune for my self in real estate and other amenities as some have done..

But upon calling me and sending me to work for Him ..God accepted the responsibility to provide what was needed to fulfill that calling and God has been faithful in supplying my needs.

I work with my two older Brothers in an evangelistic team before I was twelve years old.(They too have also spent their lives as ministers of the Gospel.).

I have never considered God's calling on my life to be a career, nor is it my occupation...

It to me is a privilege, to be called and sent.

I do not believe that God loves me any more than the vilest sinner...

God owes me nothing...

Jesus paid it all and all to Him I owe.

Both are true.
You know as well as I do, that the ridicule you'd face from your peers and the financial burden of a career change is enough to make you ignore truth.

It is one thing to disagree. It is another to believe one can read another man and woman's heart. Nothing wrong with questioning one's beliefs. It is another to condescendingly "feel sorry" for 2 people. It is another to suggest subtly that they do not change beliefs because they would have to leave their career. Step back and take a look at what you said.

The greatest Blessing tht God could bestow upon us

TOOK PLACE... WHEN

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and

===>the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. <===

THIS IS GOD'S REASON FOR GIVING HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON..

The above free gift cannot be earned bought nor sold

It cannot be contained monopolized or controlled...

The price that was paid can never be told...

Heb_4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Perhaps you should watch the video entitled "The Reformation". It describes the people of God who left a corrupt non-Biblical legalistic institution called the Roman Catholic Church. It has been available for many, many years. Apparently you missed it. Try YouTube.

You said, quote, "People absolutely will not leave their careers and admit they were wrong." End quote.

This Sunday get in your car and drive down the streets of your home town. You will find thousands upon thousands of people who have admitted they were wrong and joined Protestant churches. And by the way, the same could be said for you.

An good actor can portray most of the sufferings of Jesus

He can show forth the most all of the events that took place in Hia passions..

But the event when God the Father

("the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all")

Laid upon Him the sins of the world

Cannot be portrayed...by any human being...

His sufferings there is impossible for any one to act out...

but it is possible to receive GOD'S FREE GIFT

as David the Psalmist wrote...

Psa 116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

Psa 116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

Act_16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

ABUNDANT BLESSINGS TO YOU AND HERMI...Jesus has walked with us and,...He never leaves us nor forsakes us.

Jesus will walk with me,

Jesus will walk with me down thru the valley,
Jesus will walk with me over the plain;
When in the shadow or when in the sunshine,
If He goes with me I shall not complain.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me,
He will talk with me;
He will walk with me;
In joy or in sorrow, today and tomorrow,
I know He will walk with me.

Jesus will walk with me when I am tempted,
Giving me strength as my need may demand;
When in affliction His presence is near me,
I am upheld by His almighty hand.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me,
He will talk with me;
He will walk with me;
In joy or in sorrow, today and tomorrow,
I know He will walk with me.

Jesus will walk with me, guarding me ever,
Giving me victory thru storm and thru strife;
He is my Comforter, Counselor, Leader,
Over the uneven journey of life.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me,
He will talk with me;
He will walk with me;
In joy or in sorrow, today and tomorrow,
I know He will walk with me.

Jesus will walk with me in life’s fair morning,
And when the shadows of evening must come;
Living or dying, He will not forsake me.
Jesus will walk with me all the way home.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me,
He will talk with me;
He will walk with me;
In joy or in sorrow, today and tomorrow,
I know He will walk with me.
