    Hello all. Glad to finally join the board after browsing posts for so long. Here is a very brief Church history:

    • Raised Catholic until I was 16.
    • Parents started attending a traditional Southern Baptist Church where I was baptized.
    • Left for the US Navy at 18 and hopped around churches trying to "figure things out". (Catholic, Baptist, Methodist)
    • Finally settled in at a Southern Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida until my service time was complete and I made my way back to Texas.
    • Was a member of a mega-church - also Southern Baptist - with my parents and brother for a couple years until...
    • Switched to a New Calvinism Baptist Church that became a mega-church for 7 years.
    • I've been at a PCA church since the summer of 2011.

    Digging into the establishment principle, reformed theology, presuppositional apologetics, and theonomy like crazy right now. Really eating this stuff up.

    I might have missed something - but all of you on this thread seem to be from the republic.

    So - greeting from an old fashioned monarchy.

    Welcome Nick to the PB, I am like you an ex Roman catholic. I explored all the major Protestant denomination before finally becoming also like you a Presbyterian, I also was in the Us navy during the Vietnam war.

    I am fascinated with the entire Protestant Reformation and studied it in-depth…after leaving the Roman catholic church myself….Kind of like Luther and more like Calvin in my thought now about Catholicism. I do renounce openly the papacy and the pope and any teaching which runs contrary to and above scripture. I am now in total agreement as a Protestant in sola scriptura and the other four solas of the reformation….as well as the Protestant doctrine of Justification…You will learn much on the PB about the Reformed faith. I have..again welcome!
