do Catholics believe that St. Peter was the first Pope? Why do
Catholics believe in seven sacraments and Protestants believe in only
two? Why do Catholics believe in a place between heaven and hell
called Purgatory? These are just a few subjects talked about in this
Whitcomb was a Catholic author of two spiritual booklets: Confession
of a Roman Catholic and
Catholic Church has the Answer.
A former Protestant minister, Mr. Whitcomb was converted to
Catholicism through laborious reading and comparison of the Holy
Scriptures. He recounts his conversion story step-by-step in
of a Roman Catholic.
Whitcomb tells his readers: "The right place to go for
information about Catholic belief - in fact the only
to go for complete and authoritative information - is the Catholic
Church Herself. As any detective will tell you, no investigation is
quite so complete as an on-the-spot investigation. Hence, dear
reader, if you are a Protestant, an unaffiliated Christian, or an
agnostic, who wants to know the truth about Catholic belief, take
this friendly advice: seek out a Catholic priest and put your
questions to him."
